The Game is one of David Fincher's lesser known films (made right in between Se7en and Fight Club). But it's every bit as great as the ones for which he's received copious amounts of praise. This intricately plotted morality tale disguised as mystery thriller is exciting, nuanced, beautiful to look at, expertly acted, and engaging. I refuse to tell you anything about the story, only that you've never seen anything like it. I loved this movie!
