Better than the book. Funny, smart, sweet, and I'm not just talking about Constance Wu. I pray that this gets the success it needs so that we can have more casts looking like this in the future and cinema can feel fresh and more accurate.
Not a film that ever feels scary, but I left the cinema uneasy anyway. The mood is masterfully set, as always, by David Fincher and his frequent collaborators Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The score and lighting can turn scenes that seem straight out of a romantic comedy into something foreboding. But this film isn't afraid to be funny either. It is definitely Fincher's most comical work and dark humor seems to be something he can do very well.
