    Had no expectation, but Fincher has done it again. Full of suspense, twists, and clever filmmaking. The kind of thriller that'll still be enjoyable on a second viewing

    Superb film - close to being perfect. An incredibly stylish, tense observation of the pursuit of excellence.

    I really believed this could have been good. I had read that this was an "almost profound" look at loneliness, but belief waned when the film was tirelessly stupid throughout, albeit with some flashes of really nice visuals. Belief held out, because despite the endless fart gags, I thought it could have been *so* easily been redeemed by it's ending – but instead they took it another way. The kind of ending that makes you feel like a jerk for believing it would have been anything else.

    Brilliantly original, but an acquired taste. Kiwi humour isn't for everyone, but the scene with the priest had me howling in the cinema. I think what I liked most about it, was it's not trying too hard to be anything, especially not a pulling on the heartstrings kind of film. The main character has a tonne of personality, and he's surrounded by a very well chosen and well supporting cast. All in all, it's just a very well executed, very very funny, original story.
