"Janie's Got a Gun" music video, please.
Fincher is the master of logistics. Not only does he understand WHERE to put the camera, he knows WHY he's placing it there. The same is true for the succession of scenes and his Fincher-esque sense of rhythm. After listening to his commentaries, I have a much better appreciation for his command of the actor's performance. It's easy to be seduced by his perfectionist atmospheric aesthetics, but that's secondary to inter-relations and character depth. He does it all. There's a reason he's the epitome of the "professional" director.
this guy should make more...music videos
Fincher's finally become as great as his reputation. His earlier work, in my opinion, is largely vacuous and often immoral (though I do like The Game). With Zodiac, he matured, and his filmmaking itself moved past his earlier atmospherics. Now a brisk, rat-tat-tat montage dominates his visions, a montage of evidence, occurrences, snippets of time, as he pursues something rather elusive. As pointed out in several wonderful essays, he is fascinated by process, and, strangely, finds humanity in his cataloging. His next work, about the construction of Captain Nemo's Nautilus, seems ideal for his new direction. With three incredible films under his belt (Zodiac, Social Network, Dragon Tattoo), I am finally comfortable in calling him a Great Filmmaker.
What is surprising with him is that he's on a flawless career since now: all of his movies are great. Some less than others (The Game, Alien3) but still really really good.
I think someone should start adding Fincher's MVs in MUBI ^^
Once again, Fincher was robbed. For shame, Academy
it makes him sound like he's a fucking genius or something. which he's NOT
Fight Club and Se7en No doubt his best films are
and after that movies . benjamin buttun , scocial network and Zodiac .
Seen fight club, one of my favorite movies.Seen alien 3, not that bad =).
Gonna se Zodiac tonight.
The Social Network was an incredible film. Made me question my membership with Facebook...
I'm starting to think that Zodiac may be my favorite film he's done.
Fincher's directorial style is a thing of cold beauty. One of the most significant and important directors of our generation.
Fincher is a hell of a lot better than Nolan.
Fincher is the best director.
I love you, Fincher, but please! Noomi Rapace is Lisbeth Salander~~~ LOL Maybe she'd be happy to work with you, and reprise her role. ^^
Awesome ASUNIUS! He made Fight Club, Se7en, The Game, Panic Room, Benjamin Button...yes he is a God
HE made fight club. He is GOD
His interview in the supplemental portion of the criterion collections version of "Benjamin Button" almost brought me to tears. Hearing about the reasons why he chose this movie and what led up to it makes the film even more important to me.
David,he is so great the director in my mind.
Same as Sean, I can`t imagine how will it be "The social network" but he has never disappointed me.
I really have no idea how is is going to turn "The Social Network" into another great film but I can't wait to find out!
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button did indeed scar!
A real tearjerker. Excellent film from a brilliant director.
