An underrated masterpiece

I’m such a huge fan of this movie and, in my opinion, it is easily the most underrated movie made by David Fincher. Indeed, he had directed this movie after ‘Seven’ and it wasn't so well received, at least, when you compare to how heralded was ‘Seven’ when it was released. It seems to be a trend in Fincher’s career that some really amazing gems such as ‘Zodiac’ or this movie are barely noticed whereas some other lesser work, at least in my opinion, such as ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ for example were very well received. Anyway, coming back to our main subject, I really loved this movie and, in fact, I would go even further and say that it is actually better than ‘Seven’ (I know, not many people share this opinion but guess what? I don’t care whatsoever). Once again, you have the same great Fincher visuals but, this time, there was a real depth in this story, dealing with what people needs in their life when they have reached all their goals or how far are we ready to go to be entertained. Of course, there were some obvious plot holes but the sheer ambition behind this project managed to make me forget about those. At this point, ‘Fight Club’ is my favorite Fincher feature but this one is great as well, and remains just behind at the second spot. To conclude, I think it is a great thriller, probably the best movie starring Michael Douglas and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in David Fincher’s work.
