David Fincher : analyzed and adored


David Fincher is a different breed. Uncompromising, relentless, perfectionist, stylish, meticulous… Sometimes gloomy and melancholic in his work, he’s actually regarded, studied and respected as an auteur and an artist (in the sometimes sterile film industry).

Frequent user of low angels, wide shots and with plenty of serial killers in his movies, his latest work is another proof of that affinity. Mindhunter – the latest Netflix TV series that he produced and co-directed is the current hit of the month, and it’s a continuous progression of his fascination with the human psyche. Or lack there of. But what fascinates his fans is his method, themes, creative process, and visual development of the characters and how he visually leads the story in his projects.

His movies have been analyzed, studied, and don’t’ even get me started about his work in music videos and commercials. Many creative Youtube-ers and fans of Fincher have already created an homage videos of him and his work, ranging from what he doesn’t do in his movies, to the small details that only his most devoted fans can notice and appreciate.
