Always good to see David Fincher doing more intense, darker material like this. He excels at it. And there are definitely some dark, hard-to-watch moments here. If you can handle those moments, and you like a good detective story, then you should enjoy this one. For some reason, I like seeing characters piece together a puzzle. That’s one of the reasons I liked Fincher’s Se7en, and it’s one of the reasons I liked this movie. It’s not quite Se7en, but it’s definitely worth a watch.
I’ll hop on the Rooney-Mara-was-awesome bandwagon as well. She is quietly menacing, yet vulnerable at the same time.
Good acting, good directing, and an interesting (if a bit over-loaded) story. 8.3/10
