“David has the taste of an artist and the mind of an engineer. He’s exacting, he is efficient, he is impatient with ineptitude,” “Gone Girl” star Ben Affleck states in Viceland’s documentary about David Fincher. It’s about as perfect a summary as you are going to get for the filmmaker, whose precision filmmaking and bold vision has made him a household name.
With insights from Robin Wright (“House Of Cards“), Jesse Eisenberg (“The Social Network“), and Fincher’s longtime cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth, among others, this episode of The Vice Guide To Film presents an overview of the director’s cinematic career, thematic concerns and stylistic flourishes. It’s a terrific guide that his fans will definitely want to check out. Watch the documentary here (we’ll have the embed once the code is fixed).
