David Fincher

For a number of years, I'd been around the kind of people who financed movies and the kind of people who are there to make the deals for movies. But I'd always had this naive idea that everybody wants to make movies as good as they can be, which is stupid.More David Fincher [09/02/2011 01:09:55]
Oh, yeah, I love DVD's. I don't have what you'd call an extensive collection, maybe a couple of hundred or so. But I have something on almost all the time.More David Fincher [09/02/2011 01:09:00]
There are some movies I can watch over and over, never get sick of. I'll put one of those on and be puttering around the house. Then a certain scene will come on and I'll just have to go over and watch.More David Fincher [09/02/2011 01:09:06]
When I'm watching somebody act, it's a behavior editorial function - I look at someone act, and I might say, 'I don't believe him when he says that.' I don't know why I don't believe him, probably because the people that I've met, they don't act like that when they say stuff like that and mean it.More David Fincher [09/02/2011 01:09:27]

I think intelligence is totally subjective it's like sexiness.More David Fincher [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

My idea of professionalism is probably a lot of people's idea of obsessive.More David Fincher [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The simple-minded always look for something - if it's not pornography, it's DVDs or the Internet or video games - but I don't think there's anything inherently evil about Facebook.More David Fincher [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I like people that like to work the way that I like to work.More David Fincher [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Sometimes people freak out when you shoot 40 takes of something. They start looking at you like, "What did I do wrong?", and its like "No. It's not wrong. It's just that we are going to try something different."More David Fincher [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think title sequences are an opportunity to sort of set the stage or to get people thinking in different terms than maybe whatever they understand the movie to be going in.More David Fincher [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When you cast somebody you cast them not only for... I look for an inherent kind of quality. You are going to be shooting 14 hour days and you are going to be tired. You are going to not necessarily be able to conjure armor or a façade every single moment.More David Fincher [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I was always interested in films that scar.More David Fincher [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't know how much movies should entertain. To me I'm always interested in movies that scar. The thing I love about JAWS is that I've never gone swimming in the ocean again.More David Fincher [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have demons you can't even imagine.More David Fincher [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Directing ain't about drawing a neat little picture and showing it to the cameraman. I didn't want to go to film school. I didn't know what the point was. The fact is, you don't know what directing is until the sun is setting and you've got to get five shots and you're only going to get two.More David Fincher [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You can do something that walks a line, and invariably, whatever that line is, it will be crossed by people who don't know any better and want to ape the success.More David Fincher [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A movie is made for an audience and a film is made for both the audience and the filmmakers. I think that The Game is a movie and I think Fight Club's a film. I think that Fight Club is more than the sum of its parts, whereas Panic Room is the sum of its parts. I didn't look at Panic Room and think: Wow, this is gonna set the world on fire. These are footnote movies, guilty pleasure movies. Thrillers. Woman-trapped-in-a-house movies. They're not particularly important.More David Fincher [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You can’t take everything on. That’s why when people ask how does this film fit into my oeuvre. I say 'I don’t know. I don’t think in those terms’. If I did, I might become incapacitated by fear . . . How do you eat a whale? One bite at a time. How do you shoot a 150-day movie? You shoot it one day at a time.More David Fincher [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
