The Game

I just finished watching The Game. I don't remember its theatrical release in 1997; I just added it to my netflix queue aftering reading something about alternative reality games (like ilovebees) to the effect that this movie would appeal to people who like ARGs.

I think my heart rate is still on its way down after seeing that one. It's one of those "mess with your mind" movies. And it's pretty hard for me not to like those. This had more of a thriller pace to it, so yes, I was on the proverbial edge of my seat throughout.

And Daniel Schorr makes a cameo in it! You know, the NPR senior news analyst? I had no idea he was in any movies.

I liked all of the major actors' performances—Michael Douglas, Sean Penn, the unconventionally beautiful Deborah Unger, and the strangely familiar-looking James Rebhorn (maybe it's just that he reminds me of Julian Glover).

So I recommend this movie. Except to people with paranoid tendencies. This movie could seriously push them over the edge.
