“Michael Fassbender Is an Unsettled Assassin in David Fincher’s Wry, Pleasingly Pulpy Thriller”

At least no one will get to the end of director David Fincher‘s latest, The Killer, and feel in any way misled by the title. Or the film’s droll, on-the-nose tagline for that matter: “Execution is everything,” arguably the most Fincherian tagline ever, as a colleague pointed out…..
