The Game (1997)

Streaming on Netflix | imdb | trailer

This is a good early David Fincher film that doesn’t get mentioned often. If you have nothing but contempt for rich people, don’t watch The Game. If you just want to see an intricate thriller that will keep you guessing until the end, you’ll probably enjoy this. It’s not very violent, it’s got zero nudity, but it’s a solid film for adults anyway. Michael Douglas is great, the film has Deborah Unger from Cronenberg’s Crash, and Sean Penn before he went off the rails too. The Netflix version has had the film grain over-filtered, and could really use the shadows and colors punched up, but those are not deal-breakers. The Game is good cinema that can probably be enjoyed in any state of mind.

Available on Blu-ray from Universal.
