David Fincher's Favorite Films

Thompson on Hollywood

Check out this evergreen: David Fincher’s handwritten note of his favorite films–which include a lot of the usual suspects. Peter Bogdanovich’s comedy Paper Moon, George Roy Hill’s Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Woody Allen’s Zelig pop out as perhaps somewhat unexpected.

It comes from a Fincher interview in Empire first posted by Fincher Fanatic in 2008. Slashfilm helpfully added a text list of the films (below). The list pops up now and again–especially now that the guy might win an Oscar for The Social Network.
