Panic Room (2002)


Op TV: za 8 sept - 22:00 - 00:05 op RTL 4

An effective exercise in "confined cinema," Panic Room is a finely crafted thriller that ultimately transcends the thinness of its premise. David Koepp's screenplay is basically Wait Until Dark on steroids, so director David Fincher (Seven, The Game) compensates with elaborate CGI-assisted camera moves, jazzing up his visuals while a relocated New York divorcée (Jodie Foster) and her daughter (Kristen Stewart) fight for their lives against a trio of tenacious burglars (Jared Leto, Forest Whitaker, Dwight Yoakam) in their new Manhattan townhouse. They're safe in a customized, impenetrable "panic room," but the burglars want what's in the room's safe, so mother and daughter (and Koepp and Fincher) must find clever ways to turn the tables and persevere. Suspense and intelligence are admirably maintained, with Foster (who replaced the then-injured Nicole Kidman) riffing on her Silence of the Lambs resourcefulness. It's not as viscerally satisfying as Fincher's previous thrillers, but Panic Room definitely holds your attention.


Dertiger Meg (Foster) laat haar overspelige man achter en verhuist met haar jonge dochter Sarah (Stewart) naar een kapitaal huis aan de andere kant van Central Park. In het huis bevindt zich een met cameracircuit uitgeruste paniekkamer, waarin je kunt vluchten als er wordt ingebroken. De eerste nacht is het gelijk raak met maar liefst drie inbrekers. Het eerste dat opvalt in Panic Room is de cinematografie die de kale kamers van het echoënde huis opvoert als een derde ensemble acteurs, naast de inbrekers en de vrouwen. Ongehinderd door spijlen, muren of plafonds belicht de camera een uiterst onderhoudend verhaal.
