You have a responsibility for the way you make the audience feel, and I want them to feel uncomfortable. – David Fincher (Esquire Magazine, March 1, 2007)
David Fincher is an American film and music video director, who was born in Denver on August 28, 1962. He is known as innovative but meticulous director who often chooses dark films.
Fincher’s debut on the big screen was in 1992 with Alien3. With a budget of $ 50 million, it is the one of the most expensive directorial debut in history. However, unfinished script and some problems with the producers prevented Fincher to show his full potential. This bad experience is likely led that Fincher carefully selects the next projects.
The following Fincher’s projects include films such as Se7en, The Game, Fight Club, Panic Room, Zodiac, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl.
