carsten’s review published on Letterboxd:
a crime drama with elements of psychological horror that makes you endure an overwhelming feeling of suspense and anxiety throughout every waking moment of this film. david fincher really brought the screenplay to life with the style of direction that we’ve grown so fond of, he visualized the true horror and dread of the story at the aid of impressive cinematography and a moody tone. we got incredible performances from the likes (and one exception of a dislike) of brad pitt, morgan freeman, gwyneth paltrow, and kevin spacey, who gave some of the best acting of their careers in this. this is a film that was truly ahead of its time, and that’s exactly why it will continue to live on in its brilliance.
