An enjoyably taught little thriller in which Jodie Foster attempts to defend her family against a group of house invaders, by withdrawing into the metal prison of the film's title. If that sounds simple enough, the filming process was anything but…
Attention To Detail:
David Fincher is known for going through take after take after take in order to get a scene just so. However, while the director usually has an end-point in sight, his perfectionism on
reportedly got way out of control. “He looked at me, and he was like, ‘I just don’t know anymore,’” says Foster of her experience on the shoot. “I’m like, ‘You know what? I usually see what you’re going for. This time, I don’t see the difference between take two and take seven.’ And he’s like, ‘Oh my God. I’m crazy, aren’t I?’" Still a good film, though.
