08.09.09DVD Another one I got for my birthday (david fincher + criterion = purchase). Jarrette had told me a loooong time ago that this was not that great and exactly what I expect it to be: Oscar baiting make-up and not much else. No surprise that he's right.

The film (guess you can't call them that anymore) is very pretty and the music is suitably epic or whatever but it feels too much like a not-funny Forrest Gump (complete with war sequence, colorful sea captain, and significant historical events happing in the background) to be anything on its own. Plus the little old dude creeps me out. Digital or not, he's creepy.

Fincher is clearly a talented director. I just don't like his scripts sometimes. Much like Panic Room, I suspect I'll enjoy the supplements on the second disc much more than the movie itself.
