4 out of 5. Writing the previous review made me think of this other easily forgotten gem by David Fincher, ZODIAC. The sound design was rich, the film was dark and punishing. The characters were almost as scary in their intensity as the killer they were chasing. You can see how the tidal wave of mysterious terror overtakes their lives slowly and pulls them under before it's too late. Probably not an easy one to rewatch but a great reminder of how compelling Fincher continues to be as a filmmaker.
