Part of Vprento’s Directors Ranked: David Fincher
I caught a cold so most of today, tomorrow and maybe the day after tomorrow will be spent recovering, sleeping and watching some movies. My health may or may not influence my perception of these movies.
David Fincher is a phenomenal director and his track record speaks for itself. I'd say that "Panic Room" is my least favorite movie from him, but this is still a movie that has many redeeming attributes and some of Fincher's directorial flair.
The story is simple - a mother and a daughter are holed up in a panic room inside their brand new home while 3 thieves are trying to rob them.
The performances are solid but nothing extraordinary, while the subtle CGI and camera tricks elevate this movie from the regular 2000s thriller that it is.
