Jake Gyllenhaal, Nightcrawler
You may remember earlier this year seeing a rather rail-thin Jake Gyllenhaal at red carpets and other public appearances. You also might remember reports that the actor had to go to the hospital because he had badly cut his hand with glass after punching a mirror. No, this wasn’t the sign of Hollywood excess or a troubled actor— it was all for a role in a new movie.

Enemy, Jake Gyllenhaal
Ranked among our Best Films Of 2014 So Far..., Denis Villeneuve's "Enemy" is truly something special, and if you've been reading the site, you already know how fond we are of the picture. It's a mindbender of the best kind, taking audiences on a journey inside the psyche of a man riddled with guilt, with surrealistic touches that David Lynch would be proud of. But if you haven't managed to catch it yet, the good news is that it's coming to home video this week and we've got an exclusive look at some of the extra content.

Jake Gyllenhaal, Enemy
It's something of a minor crime that people don't know the name Jean-Marc Vallée. But that may be due to the stealthy nature of his career that has seen him hunker down and knock out film after film that were acclaimed, and yet somehow, the spotlight always managed to miss shining on him.

With the pair embarking shortly on a summer tour, they've dropped the trailer for the short film "Run" and we can't make heads or tails of this thing.

Enemy, Jake Gyllenhaal
At the risk of blatantly repeating ourselves, Jake Gyllenhaal and director Denis Villeneuve are on the cusp of a banner 2013 that is about to hit its crest. Their first-unveiled collaboration, the harrowing, Fincher-with-more-emotional-resonance crime thriller “Prisoners” has already bruised audiences in Telluride and Toronto (read our review here). But if “Prisoners” is the grimmest studio film you’ve seen since “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” then “Enemy”—chronologically their first collaboration—is the equally dark but more experimental and arty cousin. And a terrifically haunting one at that.

Double and Doppelgangers feature
In a culture of cellphone-snapped selfies it’s hard to imagine a time when people might have been afraid of their own image. But Facebook walls and Instagram feeds to the contrary, for the vastly longer portion of human history, to see a perfect replica of yourself was an uncanny event, impossible even, exemplified by the belief shared by some native tribes in the early days of photography, that it could take away your soul. Or perhaps they were just being super cautious about ownership of their brand image.

Enemy
As Denis Villeneuve's transfixing psychothriller "Enemy" heads to theaters, one thing that perhaps has been forgotten in coverage about the film is that it's based on the novel by José Saramago. Indeed, the Nobel Prize winning Portuguese writer's excellent "The Double" is the source material for the film, which takes the concept of a man discovering his exact double in a movie, and transplants it to Toronto for a tale of identity, sexuality and much more. And in this new, exclusive featurette we see how that transition came about.

Enemy
At its most basic, “Enemy” is about a man having an affair. Then again, nothing about “Enemy” should be described as “basic.” Denis Villeneuve’s film, which premiered last September at the Toronto Film Festival, is a psychological thriller, a psychosexual dream, an exploration in duality, and an arachnophobic’s worst nightmare (that last one will make more sense once you actually see the movie). It’s about a man, Adam Bell (Gyllenhaal), who discovers he has a doppelganger living on the other side of town. Is it the same person? Is it his long lost twin? Is it a figment of his imagination? It all sounds a bit perplexing, but these are the questions the movie forces you to answer.

Jake Gyllenhaal
Okay, the McConnaisance is now complete with the Matthew McConaughey taking the Best Actor award at the Oscars over the weekend. So how about the Gyllen-sance instead? The actor has quietly been putting a together a string of solid work with interesting directors including "Source Code" for Duncan Jones; "End Of Watch" with David Ayer; two films with Denis Villeneuve, "Prisoners" and "Enemy"; and he's currently in production on "Everest" with Baltasar Kormakur and recently wrapped "Nightcrawler" with Tony Gilroy. What's next?
