Known as a formidable force in the thriller genre, David Fincher has also come to be known as a director who is detailed to the point of exhaustion. Throughout his career, colleagues, cast members, and crew members have described him as articulate, exacting, intense, tough, and relentless; however, they also described him as a wonderful, funny, and a great friend.
Don’t let any of that take away from his talent, though — this man is behind such masterful works as Se7en, Gone Girl, Zodiac, and The Social Network, among more than a handful of others that we are about to get into. Fincher’s style of film is well known in the film community, using signature methods of cinematography, lighting, plot structure, and music. His films always include low lighting, tracking shots, multiple plot twists, and emotionally visceral film scores. The latter has been refined over the years, thanks to his collaborations with musicians and his history of music video direction.
As with the innovative and unforgettable best films from Steven Spielberg, Fincher has come to work with repeat film-scoring talent to fully capture his vision. None other than Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross — best known for joining NIN in 2016 but has been working with him for 20 years now — have been behind the last four film scores, which have become some of his best and most renowned films of his career. “Our role is to help realize his vision the best we can,” Reznor once said.
If you don’t know much about David Fincher’s films, it should be known that they are not only dark in lighting but also in theme and plot. Those with a weak stomach should refrain from a few of his titles, all of which will be explained in the coming film descriptions. If not, I hope you agree with and enjoy my rankings of all of the David Fincher films.
