Directors Talk: David Fincher

Hey everyone! It’s time for another round of “Directors Talk”, the roundtable series of discussion about today’s biggest directors that I participate in with Ian and PG Cooper.

This time up on the agenda It’s David Fincher, most recently known for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, but who has been Oscar nominated for “The Social Network” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”. Of course, he’s probably best known as the director of “Se7en” and “Fight Club”… two unforgettable movies.

He has an incredible filmography, and we have quite a discussion about him!

Ian is hosting this installment, so click here to check out our awesome roundtable!

  1. Just read the roundtable and thought I would reply here because a few people said they had problems with Ian’s reply line. Fincher has my undying respect and gratitude! He earned it by adhering to the source material for “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. There was a big variance between the original and his film, so I broke down and read the book(check with Maire, it’s true). His version is great and the one to see for all lovers of the book. I hope, with you guys, that he finishes the trilogy. I very much suspect the same is true for “Fight Club”. This was a very popular novel and knowing Fincher’s “modus operandi”, he can’t be criticized for being true to it!

    • I read Fight Club, let’s just say I give Fincher a LOT of credit for the movie. LOL.

      “Girl” was an awesome flick. I cant speak to it as an adaptation, but as a film, it was so engrossing. Dark… Crazy flick. I hope he finishes out the triolgy, too.

      I still need to check out the swedish version one of these days.

      On the post, I think Ian was talking about a formatting issue he was having in the post, but he cleared it up now. Just in case anyone’s checking this…
