Burger without bacon
What is it about? A brilliant but arrogant scientist has managed to become invisible and exploits this limitless power in a very sinister way.
Why should you watch it? Giving a chance to one of the least appreciated films of Paul Verhoeven’s American career. Created in response to two of the most outrageous Hollywood productions of their time (show girls et Spaceship Troopers) and on the eve of a saving return home (black book† Superficial man symbolizes for many the separation between the blockbuster industry and the violent Dutchman. We often underline the structural flaws, and in particular: his latest act that turns into a naughty slasher†
However, it remains one of the most fascinating variations on the invisible man myth, adding: unhealthy sexual tension, accentuated to the point of discomfort in the director’s cut, for this already very dark figure.

What is it about? When his brother offers him the chance to participate in a mysterious game for his birthday, this cold-hearted investment banker falls into a dangerous paranoid spiral.
Why should you watch it? Because The game is the third feature film directed by David Fincher. Featuring a diabolical screenplay by John Brancato and Michael Ferris that continually urges the viewer to reconsider what is before their eyes, the film offers a hyperstimulating twisted plot† The whole is guided by the precision of the cutting of David Fincher, the melancholic musical composition of Howard Shore, the all-in-one chiaroscuro photography of Harris Savides and the magnetism of Michael Douglas, Deborah Kara Unger and Sean Penn.
But in addition to the playfulness of the writing and the virtuosity of the staging, the real power of The game turns out to be his sensitive heart hidden behind the framework of the psychological thriller. His disillusioned character’s quest for humanity and the melancholy deteriorated visions of his childhood then enrich the film with an astonishing sadness that makes it all the more gripping and striking.
