I've been anticipating this film for almost a year, maybe longer- Since it was been announced seeing as David Fincher is in my top 2-3 directors today. I even read the novel because he was doing the film- Fincher chooses crazy ass plots so I gave it a shot.

Despite already knowing what was going to happen, this movie STILL blew me away and was one of the more evocative stories I've seen on screen in some time. Rosamund Pike was a revelation and she owned the role, like on point. She became the character I read in the book and her characterization is some of the craziest shit since Cathy Ames in East of Eden. Can't speak to how much she impressed me here. She went all out. Wish she could get an Oscar but this film is too inappropriate for that.

As soon as I heard Ben Affleck was the lead I supported the decision. He too was perfectly cut out for the role and even though he's not as good as Pike, he was superlative and did some of his best work. Everybody was cast well, even Tyler Perry was really great in his role as the high profile defense attorney. you know Fincher is beyond man when he can get Tyler Perry to give an awesome performance.

The art direction/ cinematography- classic Fincher. The shots, filters, lighting displayed his signature style to the tee so I enjoyed that. The sets were great and it conveyed the story very well. Some of the imagery was even more effective than what I projected in my mind reading the novel.

I'm not a voracious reader, maybe like 2 books a year but this was the best adapted novel to the screen I can recall where I consumed both. This movie just fcks with the viewer (as it should) and does as much as it can to be horrifying, cynical & even with tinges of black humor.

Shit rocked, it was awesome. Go see it if you like twisted stories with intelligent screenplays

9.6/10

Cold In July - 8.5/10

This is an extremely violent and dark Texas noir. Just great dark stuff. Michael C. Hall is awesome.

What makes you categorize the film analysis as quality? What traits about the analysis draw you to it?

The Truman Show 9/10

I loved it. Jim Carey was brilliant and the film was shot beautifully and in a way that made it feel very realistic (at least in the world of the film).

Cant believe i havent seen this before, that extreme innocent suburbs vs extreme terror story with its weirdness, disturbance, tension and style... and Hopper (dat scene in Dorothy's apartment ).... makes this easily one of the best movies i ever seen... Lynch is a genius...


10 of freakin 10
