The Game ★★★★

“whereas once i was blind, now i can see”

the first viewing is about as powerful as it ever gets, but this has still held up as a decently thrilling mystery, even when it isn’t a mystery anymore. maybe the biggest flaw here is how dull the protagonist is, even when he’s running for his life or yelling at the top of his lungs. definitely not fincher’s best, but nowhere near his worst either
