This is one of those slow-burn modern-classic films that only David Fincher could have directed. Mark and Chad discuss, well – is it a “classic”? Chad seems to think so. Mark isn’t as certain. One thing is for sure, however: the film didn’t play well on first viewing, but ultimately gets much, much better on repeat viewings. Is that because it breaks the modern storytelling tropes? Does it break traditional structure? Does the film climax?
Will all these questions be answered here? Probably not, but we’ll touch on some of it.
Performers of note: Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Edwards, Robert Downey Jr., Brian Cox, John Carroll Lynch
