Jake Gyllenhaal and director Denis Villeneuve have recently set about turning their blossoming cinematic partnership into the kind of professional pairing that cranks out clever, creepy feature films that stick with their audiences long after they end. In short, these two like to make skin-crawling films that freak people out, and it turns out they’re pretty good at it.
Villeneuve and Gyllenhaal premiered both of their collaborations last year at the Toronto International Film Festival, though their bigger-budget (and bigger-named) ‘Prisoners’ hit theaters while the intriguing ‘Enemy’ bided its time before a more low-key release. While ‘Prisoners’ presented a terrifying premise that was still relatable – a pair of suburban couples are heartbroken when their young daughters go missing, and the fallout is very unexpected – ‘Enemy’ goes full throttle on a plot line that’s both bizarre and purposely hard to swallow.
Before they shot last year's sleeper success 'Prisoners,' actor Jake Gyllenhaal and director Denis Villeneuve collaborated on 'Enemy,' which found some love on the festival circuit. Now, four months after their second film together opened, the full 'Enemy' trailer is here to point to a theatrical release.
Jake Gyllenhaal is coming off his most acclaimed performances in years in 'Prisoners' and 'Enemy' and his set up his next starring role: the boxing drama 'Southpaw,' a project originally written for rapper Eminem.
Here's a tip. If you don't want people to think you are a child molester, pick out different frames than the ones Paul Dano wears in 'Prisoners.'
When neither Jake Gyllenhaal (as Detective Loki - yeah, you read that right) or his CSI crew can find any evidence that suspected molester Dano abducted two little girls that went for an unsupervised walk through a Pennsylvania suburb after Thanksgiving dinner, it's up to one of the two fathers of the girls - Hugh Jackman - to take matters into his own hand...
Whether you're a fan of musicals or not, 'Into the Woods' should intrigue you, based on the way it's shaping up. The Rob Marshall film already has Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep on board (enough star wattage for two or three movies right there), but breaking news suggest the duo will be joined by an unlikely pair: Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhaal. What-WHAT?!
When it comes to cult classics, the 2001 film 'Donnie Darko' just might sit at the very top. Writer/director Richard Kelly mixed teen angst, sci-fi and an amazing '80s soundtrack to create a spellbinding movie that still has fans debating the ending today. But what holds together the labyrinthine plot is a stellar cast made up of up-and-coming young actors, seasoned vets and '80s favorites playing against type.
The aesthetics of a found footage movie -- a narrative designed to look like a documentary shot by the characters onscreen -- often lend absurd concepts a sense of realism they otherwise wouldn't have. The found footage aesthetics of the new cop movie 'End of Watch' have the opposite effect. The characters and their world look and sound authentic -- but the way those characters and their world are presented looks completely artificial. The nonfiction-style presentation feels like the most fictional part.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena look to get more than they bargained for in 'End of Watch,' the David Ayer-directed film about two cops facing the wrath of a drug cartel. Now there's a NSFW red-band trailer for the movie.
