The Game

The Game ★★★★

Discovering the object of the game is the object of the game.

Fun fact: George Maguire, who plays the hotel manager in this, as well as the support group leader in Fight Club, was my acting professor in college. I knew he was in Fight Club, but was unaware (or had forgotten) that he was in this too, so quite a surprise when he suddenly appeared. Really weird seeing someone you knew irl in a movie.

The only thing I really remembered from this movie was that there was a plot twist, but I didn't remember what it was. A pretty good paranoid thriller, even if I'm not 100% sure it actually makes sense (the twist gives an overwhelming sense of "so what was this all about, and why did everything happen the way it did").

I hope Michael Douglas is happier in real life than he is in literally every movie I've ever seen him in.
