David Fincher never ceases to amaze. One after another, he continues to direct masterpieces. Some of his other works are Fight Club, Se7en, Gone Girl, The Social Network, House of Cards…….etc. He has also directed various music videos (I was also surprised :P) and that’s not where it ends…. he has also received two Grammys for best music video.
His movies…..(finding a word)…… have a depth, which many modern movies lack. Well that’s the most appropriate word that I could find. You dive inside these movies and there is no way you can leave them in between, they grip you. I also believe that there has been a strong role of screenplay in his movies. His movies have brilliant screenplays and he has done justice to each one of them as a director.
Everything I said in the above para is also valid for The Game. You will never totally understand what is happening and why is it happening, and that’s the thing that keeps you engrossed in the movie throughout.
IMDb-“Nicholas Van Orton is a very wealthy San Francisco banker, but he is an absolute loner, even spending his birthday alone. In the year of his 48th birthday (the age his father committed suicide) his brother Conrad, who has gone long ago and surrendered to addictions of all kinds, suddenly returns and gives Nicholas a card giving him entry to unusual entertainment provided by something called Consumer Recreation Services (CRS). Giving in to curiosity, Nicholas visits CRS and all kinds of weird and bad things start to happen to him.”
