Classic David Fincher!!
I really hope you know who David Fincher is. If you don’t, he is the man who gave you Fight Club, Gone Girl, Se7en, The Social Network, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button…..and the list goes on. So you now know what you can expect from this one.
Knowing that this movie is a mystery crime thriller from David Fincher, you would expect something on the lines of Se7en. But let me break this to you, it is nothing like Se7en. It is milder, simpler, and presents a well argued case. It doesn’t make you feel lost, something which I really liked. Having said that, it doesn’t mean that it won’t keep you riveted…..after all, it’s directed by the one and only, David Fincher. This movie was yet another great performance by Jake Gyllenhaal, the most underrated actor in Hollywood.
It might not be Se7en, but it’s surely something…..something you really need to watch. It WILL do everything that you expect a Fincher movie to do…..just in a different manner than Se7en. For those who haven’t watched any Fincher movies, all I can say is that it’s a great crime thriller…..a MUST WATCH!! For others, you don’t need me to tell you to watch a Fincher movie 😛
