Panic Room

Panic Room ★★★★½

Since I've been going through Brian DePalma's filmography and noticing his obvious Hitchcock fetish, it was rather interesting to see how well Fincher also crafts this film as an homage to Hitchcock as well. 
The score, while not intrusive throughout the film, is a clear Hermann riff during the opening and closing credits. 
The setting makes for a high concept, tense thriller that features nods to Rope and Rear Window
The camera experimentation and use of shadows are bold choices that work and really add to the atmosphere. 
Jodie Foster is brillaint utilizing a smart script that feeds you the information as it proceeds but never dumbs down to the audience.
