You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
Trapped in their New York brownstone's panic room, a hidden chamber built as a sanctuary in the event of break-ins, newly divorced Meg Altman and her young daughter Sarah play a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with three intruders - Burnham, Raoul and Junior - during a brutal home invasion. But the room itself is the focal point because what the intruders really want is inside it.
jared leto with cornrows has been the ugliest thing I've ever seen in my entire life and I've seen him in the suicide squad trailer
I've never seen a single second of any of the Twilight movies. And I already know Kristen Stewart is 10x better in this, than she was in any of those movies.
From the director of Se7en & Fight Club, Panic Room arrives as another intensely gripping, nail-biting & edge-of-the-seat experience from David Fincher which further solidifies his position as one of the modern masters of thrillers, and beautifully balances its style with substance to succeed as one of the most captivating, entertaining & satisfying works of Fincher's career.
Set in New York City, the story of Panic Room concerns a recently divorced mother & her 11-year old daughter who purchase a new house which comes equipped with a safe room in case the security is breached. But on the very first night, three burglars break into their house in search for a missing fortune which is present in the very room where the two ladies…
I think few people give Panic Room the credit it deserves. The production design is a state-of-the-art masterpiece.
Looking through the background material for this film, it's impossible not to be impressed. For instance, the previsualization process was at the time the most thorough in movie history. Previz can best be described as an animated storyboard, and has never been used to this extent. In fact, with a few omissions in the opening and the end of the film, a complete animated version of the film exists.
The sets were constructed in their entirety at a Los Angeles soundstage («There is no house»). The way these sets are constructed are so meticulously planned that Fincher wore out an entire crew…
casting jodie foster and kristen stewart, two modern sapphic icons as mother and daughter is just one of the many reasons why david fincher is considered a visionary
Panic Room, even with a multitude of flaws, is massively entertaining. It was one of the last Fincher films that I had to see, and when I found it on Netflix Instant; I happily dove into another dark and dreary Fincher Film.
Panic Room stars Jodie Foster as a separated wife and mother moving into a new house. In their first night spending the night, with many boxes left unpacked, a group of intruders enter; unaware that anyone has moved in.
That's all I'm going to say, because the rest is best left for your discovery. I couldn't imagine seeing this in a packed house on opening weekend, It would've been nuts. Basically, the film is tense. Really, really, REALLY…
plot hole room
this movie proves that you can panic even if you're not at the disco
why is jodie's character such a bad mom
Lesser Fincher for sure, but the admittedly-average screenplay is executed so well that it's hard not to be impressed. Not a single shot is wasted, every camera movement and edit feels carefully calculated and meticulously carried out. Fincher and Foster carry this whole movie, but thankfully they're more than up for the task.
meh. Lukewarm film that I didn'r relate to at all.
A re-watch purely to experience some more of Fincher's work as a director. One of his more infamous quotes about his films was that he saw this as a 'movie' rather than a film - I suppose that means that his focus was on slick entertainment rather than more artsy pretensions. There's nothing much else here honestly, though Foster and Whitaker are fun to watch in almost anything.
I think for a movie set in one place the problem is not lack of dynamism, it's that there's a relentless pace that lacks breathing room (the panic room of the nervous film-makers making a one-set movie desperate to inject energy into everything). The relentless arguments between the invaders feels like busywork,…
Outside of Alien 3, the worst Fincher movie. Kinda dull, predictable. Has all his aesthetics and skill and little to make it worth it. Hollow.
But enjoyable nonetheless, taken in a vacuum.
Ugh. Jared Leto sucks.
This is what a good director can do to a bad script.
The Mako Mori test is passed if the movie has a) at least one female character b) who gets her…
Help me out with this one guys.
"It's Mission Impossible!" is the true peak of cinéma.
