David Fincher: Without fear of failure

Director Fincher is a very uncomfortable person in Hollywood. Only he, not at all interested in the sum of his own fee, immediately demands to rewrite the script and change the actor-star, on which producers put.

Director Fincher is a very uncomfortable person in Hollywood. Only he, not at all interested in the sum of his own fee, immediately demands to rewrite the script and change the actor-star, on which producers put. And only in his films, regularly falling into the box office, do stars of the first magnitude still want to work. But it is his failures that are completely made of discoveries.

Already at the dawn of his creative youth, he showed teeth of artistic intransigence: seeing the Star Wars, threw a school – to go to work for the George Lucas studio. He became a clip maker who formed the visual style of the 80s, and the 90s: the clips of Madonna, Sting, Aerosmith, Stevie Uander-his hands. But having finally received his own film project, Fincher took off something so gloomy, brutal and ascetic that it (although it came out under the label “Alien”, like the third part of the saga) barely justified the money spent on it. In his Seven, Fincher opened a thriller as an apocalyptic genre and flooded the screen with a rain stream and darkness of the Egyptian

, insidiously covering from the audience the irresistible charm of Brad Pitt.

He waged a war with demons and later. When a brother shot a brother at the game. When a clean clerk received a strong blow to the ribs from his second “I” in the “Fight Club”. Когда непроницаемая для злоумышленников комфортная «комната страха» оказывалась смертельной ловушкой. And when, in the Zodiac, the director’s new film, the killer that was not found from the 60s, keeps San Francisco and the surroundings, as if hinting at the persecution mania that has already covered our contemporaries … All this is the personal sentence of Fincher to the current world,which is hostile to a person, because it is unable to bring at least some compliance of the inertness of the established rules and non-notostless progress.

“Zodiac”

Cast: Jake Jillenhae, Robert Dauni-Ml., Mark Ruffalo, Chloe Sevigny and others. At the box office from June 21.
