I’m a huge admirer of director David Fincher too! His cinematic prowess and meticulous attention to detail truly set him apart. I’ve got a fascinating video from TIFF Originals that delves into his distinctive cinematographic style. The note that accompanies it provides an insightful glimpse into Fincher’s journey, from his early days at ILM working on RETURN OF THE JEDI to his iconic music videos for the likes of Madonna, Michael Jackson, and Jay-Z. The note touches upon his penchant for perfection, exemplified by his tendency to conduct over 100 takes, showcasing his commitment to achieving the desired vision.
Fincher’s signature touch is explored in the video, highlighting his razor-sharp precision, omniscient and unencumbered camerawork, pitch-black comedy, and the profound understanding that, deep down, people are inherently drawn to the mysterious and perhaps even the perverse.
As we eagerly await Fincher’s upcoming film, The Killer, this video serves as a captivating celebration of his directing style. It’s a testament to his ability to captivate audiences and leave an indelible mark on the world of cinema. I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did!
