What do you get for the man who has everything?
For zillionaire investment banker Nicholas Van Orton, a surprise birthday visit from his prodigal younger brother yields the unwanted gift of invitation into an ultra-exclusive alternate reality “game” offered by the deeply mysterious Consumer Recreation Services. Prideful curiosity becomes begrudging involvement for Van Orton until the purportedly interactive entertainment gives way through ever-increasing hostility to an apparent criminal manipulation of him, a potentially lethal set-up to gain access to his fortunes and reduce him to nothing. David Fincher masterfully pulls the strings in an increasingly destabilized narrative about existence-as-pyschological-thriller whose rules grow less and less clear by the minute. Featuring a hairpin plotline with as many oscillations as the vertiginous San Francisco escalations that provide its topography, The Game combines the reliably unexpected twists and immaculate formal showmanship of a Hitchcock classic with Fincher's own updated palette and wickedly deadpan humor. Michael Douglas, Sean Penn and Deborah Kara Unger are in on the joke with fantastic performances.
