    Pretty incredible how Haynes balances captivating psychodrama with perfectly calibrated humor that is sincerely devastating and at times hilarious. There’s a very understated tragedy at the core of this. So much is left unsaid, those unspoken things left in the shadows of the psyche.

    Definitely not top tier in his filmography, but Fincher has sort of perfected the modern day thriller. You’ll see this playing on cable for decades to come.

This is a sort of “love” letter to the pursuit of finding love and fulfillment in an uncertain world. A slow tidal wave of emotions is constantly brewing in our central character’s mind shifting an overtly dramatic tone to one of more whimsical and…
