The Killer

  •   David Fincher
  •   United States

After a fateful miss, an assassin (Michael Fassbender) battles his employers, and himself, on an international manhunt he insists isn’t personal. Working with the efficiency and expediency of a lifelong professional—while listening to The Smiths’ greatest hits to keep him focused–the unnamed killer crisscrosses the world, from Paris to the Dominican Republic, New Orleans to Florida, and New York finally to Chicago, to tie up any and all loose ends.

In his latest film, award-winning director David Fincher (The Social Network, Gone Girl), operating at the same high level of precision and skill as his protagonist, crafts a sleek and witty thriller about murder, routine, and one man’s obsessive attention to detail. Featuring a bewitching cameo by Tilda Swinton and a pulsating get-under-your-skin soundtrack by Nine Inch Nails duo Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, The Killer is a cool and clever demonstration of genre filmmaking from a master of the form.
