Frailty


Man you beat me to it. A terrific movie that practically no one I know has even heard of, much less actually watched. Consdering it's got Mccounaghy(sp) and bil paxton you'd think it'd move the needle a bit more just on name recognition.

Some really good ones already mentioned. Hitchcock was the king of this genre so i would add Notorious and Strangers on a Train. Also, The Conversation, The French Connection, The Lives of Others, M, Don't Look Now, Harakiri and Sicario.

Edward Norton was great in that movie and the twist at the end was brilliantly played.

North By Northwest


North by Northwest is my favorite movie of all time. The plot doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but it is interesting. I love the cinematography of mid-century Americana. The United Nations, the trains, the redcoats, the cornfield and then Mt Rushmore.

I like Rear Window a lot.

I never quite got Vertigo (I realize that it's a lot of people's favorite).

Rear Window is one of the best films ever made.


100% no question.

An absolute masterpiece.

Recently, I think Fincher's version of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo did the ending really well.


I find this movie underrated when discussing Fincher.

Arguably his best film IMO.

The mood it sets and cinematography is greatness.

Also one of Daniel Craig’s best roles.

Fincher is an all-timer, but certain movies fit his aesthetics/cinematography, and GWTDT is perfect for it.

That Scandinavian noire fits Fincher like a glove, and so many other Scandinavian noire films failed trying to mimic the style (LOOKING AT YOU SNOWMAN)

The Swedish version is still very good, if you haven't seen it.

I don't care for the sequels. They made Lisbeth into a superhuman and the mystery turned into spy shite. It wasn't nearly as engaging.

I was never impressed with the US version. The original Swedish version was extremely good and I felt like it was just duplicated with the big Hollywood version not having any originality/uniqueness.
