THE KILLER, showcasing David Fincher’s impeccable signature style, is a meticulously crafted noir thriller about a professional assassin lost in a world without a moral compass. Unflinchingly brutal and grippingly entertaining, it offers a case study of a man alone, armed to the teeth and slowly losing his edge.
After a fateful near-miss, an assassin battles his employers, and himself, on an international manhunt he insists isn't personal. Methodical and unencumbered by scruples or regrets, the killer waits in the shadows, watching for his next target. And yet the longer he waits, the more he thinks he's losing his mind, if not his cool.
Critics have lauded Michael Fassbender’s enigmatic performance as the perfect complement to Fincher’s inscrutable direction. Premiering to rave reviews at the Venice Film Festival, the movie is an adaptation of a French graphic novel of the same name that has been in development for more than two decades, but has emerged as one of the most eagerly anticipated films of the season.
