‘House of Cards’

by Giovanni Fazio

Director: Various

Language: English

Who better to play an ego-driven, revenge-seeking Washington congressman than Kevin Spacey? And who better to launch a dark, cynical look inside the halls of power than director David Fincher? While the celebrity-director launch of a TV series is common now, Fincher handled postproduction for the entire series, maintaining his distinctive color tone and pace throughout. Best of all is Kate Mara as a blogger who forms a parasitic relationship with the congressman.
