This is the video of Jake's Q&A at the Enemy premiere at Toronto and at the 3 minute mark you can hear Lisa ask Jake her question!
Meanwhile Enemy has been the subject of a bit of a distribution battle - good news.
Here is another quite substantial video interview for Prisoners:
If you've not had a look at the comments to this post yet, do please check them out because you'll hear a first hand report from Lisa (BBMISwear) about the screening of Enemy, which was accompanied by a Q&A with Jake and others in the cast and crew. Thanks so much to Lisa for that and for the photos, you'll find below:
There are more videos from both the Enemy and Prisoners premieres:
Jake also appears on the cover of the new VMan and very nice it is too... (thanks to IHJ)
There are more TV appearance updates:
12 September - Jimmy Kimmel Live

Tomorrow, of course, Jake will be recording the Queen Latifah Show for broadcast next week. Good luck to Dani who will be among the audience!
On with the post
Not content with having one film gala at Toronto, Jake Gyllenhaal premiered another film last night - Enemy (I think it's safe to drop the 'An' now). This film has more mystery surrounding it than Prisoners with very little being revealed about it. It does have an obvious advantage, though. It features multiple Jakes. Lisa (BBMISwear) was at the premiere and so hopefully we'll have an opinion on the film from her not to mention some thoughts on what must have been an incredible Toronto night.
The reviews are trickling in although most press saw the film just this morning. Here is the Playlist review. Their conclusion: 'Part existentialist thriller, part psychosexual drama, “Enemy,” like Villeneuve’s earlier festival film, is exceptionally dark, harrowing, and especially engrossing. Those that have seen “Prisoners” can attest to the methodical, hyper-attuned clinician Villeneuve has become in his approach to genre, and “Enemy” has the same quivering pitch of masterful meticulousness. Not only is “Enemy” once again first-rate filmmaking, it’s profoundly unnerving. A challenging, sometimes abstract piece of work, “Enemy” doesn’t reveal itself easily, but its coiling ouroboros quality is fascinating and spellbindingly disturbing. A riveting examination of intimacy (and the lack thereof), identity, duality and the nether regions of our unconscious desires, “Enemy” is a transfixing grand slam that certifies Villeneuve as the real deal and one of the most exciting new voices in cinema today.' Excellent.
Although this post is dedicated to Enemy, there is another interesting interview with Jake here to do with Prisoners. There are also some portraits which you can see at IHJ. My favourite is below.
No doubt this post will be updated, so do check back! Thanks to IHJ for the lovely photos.
