If I had to choose a favorite director working in movies today, it just might be David Fincher. I think that he is a master filmmaker who has made several legitimate masterpieces. Just consider some of his best work: Se7en Fight Club The Game Zodiac The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo The Social Network Gone Girl That's a strong fucking lineup! Fincher has a way of choosing interesting, off-beat subjects, and presenting them in a way that is visually compelling, getting perfect performances out of his actors, and imbibing every scene with an excess of atmosphere. Can I get some thoughts on David Fincher? Is he as good as I think he is or am I overrating him?
