The Game (1997)
I love David Fincher, but this movie was not his best work. It's definitely a successful psychological thriller like his other films, but the edge and the tension that he's so good at building are lacking. Michael Douglass and Sean Penn aren't terrible but the plot of the film is so confusing that their performances get lost along with any sense of what is reality and what is part of "the Game." I would never want to play a game like this, where your whole life gets frakked with, and I don't particularly want to watch about it, either.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars

  1. I watched this one recently and found it to be kind of creepy. Definitely, anyone with trust issues should not see this movie!
