Panic Room

Panic Room ★★★★

Forgot how fluidly this thing moves, full of stellar cross-cutting, a sharp sense of space in these roving, cg-assisted long takes getting you acquainted to the Manhattan apartment as if if it was your own so you know exactly where every one is in related to the environment heightening the tension during the cat-and-mouse sequences, and such a great feel for the logistics in every hurdle the characters are faced with, like man, Fincher directed the shit out it. Also maybe the only time where you will catch me saying Jared Leto was genuinely good, multiple times where he cracked me up but i’m partial to him muttering “how do you live in New York and not have percocet?” while looking through the bathroom cabinet for his burns he just got from an exploded propane tank.
