Things David Fincher Doesn’t Do [Brilliant!]

This video has been popping up on my favorite blogs since last week, but I haven’t had a chance to watch it until now.

And it’s excellent. One can’t help but be utterly impressed with David Fincher afterwards.

I don’t think the average movie goer notices the things that Tony Zhou points out in the video, even when watching the same flick multiple times. (At least I don’t. Do you?) But once you see it, you can’t ignore its brilliance. I mean, who knew so much thought and planning goes into each shot, angle, and perspective to get the desired story, mood, and message across to the viewers?

So if you have an extra 7 minutes today, I highly suggest you take a look at this analysis by Every Frame a Painting. And check out his other videos for more exploration into some of Hollywood’s most loved movies, directors, and actors.

P.S. — Have you watched David Fincher’s newest movie, Gone Girl? What did you think?

    This was super interesting, I’m passing it along to my husband as well – he’s a huge Fincher fan! They filmed Gone Girl in my town last fall, seeing Cape Girardeau on the big screen was so exciting. Fincher was an impressive control freak, but he was a class act, too; he did a free Q&A for film students here, and sent the owners of a local Mexican restaurant that he frequented a signed poster. I LOVED his House of Cards episodes; also appreciated the Shining reference in that video :)

  2. ooo, love this! Films become so much more fascinating once you start picking up on all the little details put into it. I haven’t seen Gone Girl yet, but the book was fantastic so I have high hopes for it!
