The man and his work...
Ever since I saw ALIEN 3 I have found his visual style fascinating.
Those opening shots of ALIEN 3, though they upset the die-hard fans of the previous movie were intriguing glimpses of a nightmare.
Then came SEVEN, ZODIAC and many others.
By all accounts he can be a nightmare to work with, but he clearly has a strong visual style, knows what he wants on screen and is determined to get it.
My favourite film of his is probably still ALIEN 3, although I know that he has disowned it because it was so difficult for him making it, but ZODIAC is a close second favourite for me.
I like David Fincher's movies, House of Cards not so much (the show is fun to watch and that's all). I think his visual fits movies better.
I don't really like Fight Club (it tries too hard), but his other movies are brilliant.
For me he is a good director, not a genius.
I dislike lots of his films, but I admire his workmanship even in those films.
A documentary on Fincher.........
I think he's a genius, and one of the best living film directors; should've won an Oscar for THE SOCIAL NETWORK.
I was going to say that I would not like to work for him, but I guess that so long as you were working to the best of your ability - and helping him to achieve his vision - then the ride need not be a rocky one?
I'd say he tries to stay well clear of anyone that's 'high maintenance' or with emotional baggage. Rooney Mara had a difficult shoot on DRAGON TATTOO, but look at her reward- an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
