Mostly, the film is an orgy of excess, in which Fincher, armed with a huge budget, some of the best technicians in the business and every available brush in the digital paintbox, indulges his passion for luxuriant image-making with little regard for whether the story merits (or can withstand) such grandiose treatment. "All I have is my story," Benjamin tells us in voiceover early on in the film. The true worth of any story, though, lies in the telling, and some stories aren't worth telling in the first place. Life, after all, is too short.
