Dustin Nowak’s review published on Letterboxd:
The first 90 minutes are solid, but it becomes truly great once the narrative completely switches over to Gyllenhaal's perspective. The overall theme of loss relating to obsession towards a fruitless goal is incredibly strong in the final hour. The basement scene is perfect cinema.
Looking at Fincher's work since, I do miss Reznor and Ross's work on the score. I can't say for sure that it would have fit perfectly here like it does with the others, but I certainly like to think so. That's not to knock this score, but it just didn't leave much of an impression on me.
