David Fincher: The Bleeding Edge (2015)


The Many Facets of David Fincher: A Director as Complicated as His Plots

The fifth installment of THE DIRECTORS SERIES' examines the films and career of director David Fincher, covering his recent quartet of hard-edged dramatic thrillers and further innovations with digital filmmaking technology.

David Fincher is not just any director. He's a master of the craft, a genius of the screen, and a downright hilarious guy to boot. And while his movies may be complex and intricate, the man himself is anything but boring.

For those of you who don't know, David Fincher is responsible for directing some of the most iconic films of our time. From the dark and twisted world of Fight Club to the eerie intrigue of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Fincher knows how to tell a story that sticks with you long after the credits roll.

But what you might not know is that David Fincher is also a man of many talents. For one thing, he's a great interviewer. When he's not directing movies, he loves to interview other directors, actors, and industry insiders about their work. And he's not afraid to ask the tough questions, either. Just watch his interview with Quentin Tarantino and see for yourself.

But that's not all. David Fincher is also a master of music videos. In fact, he got his start in the industry directing music videos for artists like Madonna, Aerosmith, and Michael Jackson. And he brought that same sense of style and flair to his feature films.

Of course, David Fincher is also known for being a bit of a perfectionist. He's notorious for doing dozens of takes of a single scene until he's satisfied with the result.
