Watch: 17-Minute Video Tribute To The Films Of David Fincher

Watch: 17-Minute Video Tribute To The Films Of David Fincher

David Fincher fans, rejoice! With the filmmaker’s “Gone Girl” opening in just a few weeks, the dedication couldn’t be more timely, and a new video compilation that pays homage to the “Se7en” director has arrived online.

Edited by Daniel Silva, the nearly 17-minute tribute splices together clips from each of Fincher’s nine feature films (with the noted exception of “Alien 3”), not including his 1985 documentary, “The Beat of the Live Drum.” Watch closelyor event not so closelyand you’ll recognize scenes from “Se7en,” “The Game,” “Fight Club,” “Panic Room,” “Zodiac,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “The Social Network” and “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”

VIewing snippets from each of the films back-to-back like this, it becomes easy to see what defines a Fincher film and makes his filmography unique. The importance of music, lighting, Brad Pitt and ever-flowing camera movement cannot be underplayed as idiosyncratic pieces of the filmmaker’s aesthetic.

It would (maybe) be interesting to see the helmer try his hand at more mainstream Hollywood fare, and in fact, Fincher almost directed Disney‘s "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea." But that’s no longer the possibility it was back in 2012 and ’13.

Even though ‘20,000 Leagues’ might not be afloat any longer, Fincher’s still optimistic about another projectthe sequel to his 2011 “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” adaptation. The director believes “The Girl Who Played with Firecould get made, despite disappointing box office returns on the first U.S. Lisbeth Salander flick.

“Gone Girl” opens October 3rd. [35 MM]

This video sucks. Really too long.

Why is this posted? This is terribly edited. 1) There are no transitions from movie to movie, or song to song; its all just random cuts 2) it’s 17 minutes that is sooo looong 3) there is nothing clever about the assembly of imagery, its literally just like "here are some scenes from David Fincher" cut to some stupid music…

Anyone know what the song playing at the beginning is called? Thanks
