41.0 Enemy - With Nabeel Elkhafif
We get combative this week when Actor Nabeel el Khafif bring us our first Denis Villeneuve film, doppelganger drama, “Enemy” from 2014. We talk the evolution of Jake Gyllenhaal’s physical perfomances, the meaning of spiders in general, and serious conflicting opinions on what the hell is going on in this movie. Enemy is available for rent and purchase through iTunes in Canada. Perfect for a rainy night to stay in and debate cinema.
Nabeel El Khafif is a Canadian-born actor, writer, and director, and former physician and surgeon.
After resigning from his position at the University of Geneva Hospital in Switzerland in 2013, Nabeel trained at the Second City Conservatory and the Professional Actor's Lab in Toronto, both institutions being well known for their respective Alumni.
His first film role was a minuscule appearance in X-men Apocalypse, and he has since appeared as recurring characters in a variety of television series.
In late 2016, he was brought on board as a series regular in the Weinstein adaptation of Stephen King's novel "The Mist", set to premiere on June 22, 2017. His directorial debut short film, ‘Actor’s Block’, co-written and co-directed by Corey Wadden, is currently touring the film festival circuit. Visit him and see more of his work on IMBD, Twitter and Instagram.
