Poster perfect: ENEMY

Whatever you may say about Enemy (and there is a lot to say; I cannot wait for the film to open) the new Jake Gyllenhaal mind-bender from filmmaker Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Incendies), the poster for the movie gets the job done.

The burden of a whole city rests on Gyllenhaal's head, and there's that spider that appears to be attacking what...the city? his mind? The pastel background, Gyllenhaal's downward glance, the melting edge of the head suggested by the jagged skyline; whatever it is, the poster manages to capture the meditative, surreal, mind-fuck tone of the film.
