$5 Monday Meetup @ Living Room Theaters! ENEMY (7:15 PM)

Grab a drink and let's go see a movie! Bring friends and some good conversation to discuss the film, its characters, the production and more. The Living Room Theater is the location of our weekly Monday meetup. Most movies they play are independent, foreign, artistic with an occasional blockbuster.

We meet Monday evenings to take advantage of their $5 Merry Monday Movie special. They have weekday showings of all their movies in the 7:00 hour, and those are the showings we're shooting for. If you see something coming up there that you'd like to recommend as our Living Room movie of the week, message me or post it on the board by Wednesday the previous week!


Adam Bell (Gyllenhaal) is a glum, disheveled history professor, who seems disinterested even in his beautiful girlfriend, Mary (Laurent). Watching a movie on the recommendation of a colleague, Adam spots his double, a bit-part actor named Anthony Clair, and decides to track him down. The identical men meet and their lives become bizarrely and irrevocably intertwined. Gyllenhaal is transfixing as both Adam and Anthony, provoking empathy as well as disapproval while embodying two distinct personas. With masterfully controlled attention to detail, Villeneuve takes us on an enigmatic and gripping journey through a world that is both familiar and strange - and hard to shake off long after its final, unnerving image. Enemy, adapted from Nobel Prize-winning author José Saramago's 2004 novel "The Double," is about the power of the subconscious. In the end, only one man can survive.

"The movie sticks to you ... and the ending is strange and sudden enough to make you revise, or interrogate, all that has come before."
Anthony Lane - THE NEW YORKER

"Enemy is a transfixing grand slam that certifies Villeneuve as the real deal and one of the most exciting new voices in cinema today."
Rodrigo Perez - THE PLAYLIST

"Enemy may crawl and infuriate, and, boy, does Villeneuve get rid of the grin. But the film sticks with you, like a dreadful dream or a spider in the bedclothes. Shake it off, and it's still there."
Anthony Lane - THE NEW YORKER

"This is a weird, psychological sexual thriller clearly designed to get a rise out of audiences. It’s also pretty damn engrossing."
Richard Roeper - CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

    Ok i just read martin's review, which i really liked: a mindhandjob is a good description, and as a female it kind of rings true. Now i feel a bit more antagonistic towards it. Hmmm.

    Sorry I didn't stick around for the discussion... didn't want to trudge through this dismal rain to the Benson. My thoughts here:
