Underrated Fincher

"The game is tailored specifically to each participant. Think of it as a great vacation, except you don't go to it, it comes to you." If Alfred Hitchcock were still alive and working in the 1990s, he would most certainly have directed 1997's The Game. Dense in atmosphere and thrills, it was only the third directorial effort of David Fincher, who had exhibited his 'A' game two years prior with 199... read more

So what do you get the man that has everything? How about this movie. The intelligent intrigue of The Game delivers a psychological thriller unlike any movie I have ever seen. Michael Douglas gives an oscar worthy performance battling the drama of a conspiracy created by on-screen brother, Sean Penn. Like Michael Douglas's character, the boundary between the game and real life became obscurred in ... read more

I’m such a huge fan of this movie and, in my opinion, it is easily the most underrated movie made by David Fincher.

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1884 movies items)

" What do you give the man, who has everything? How about a puzzle box? A interactive game, that goes along with it? David Fincher’s films are definitely not for everyone, and The Game and Panic Room, are his most approachable movies. That being said, The Game is a movie, that requires multiple viewings, and surprisingly even given that the film did remarkably pretty decent, in theatres."
