Film Meme [ 7 ] Directors
→ [ 2 ] David Fincher "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."

"House of Cards" broke through to become the first digitally distributed series to earn a major nomination for the 65th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
I had to do so many things that were really scary and new. I wouldn’t have been able to do it unless I had someone that I trusted completely, and I did. I trusted David completely.

“I remember Fight Club played at the Venice Film Festival at a midnight screening. Edward Norton & I, after having a few drinks, were sitting next to the president who’s running the whole thing. We’re sitting up in the balcony. It’s subtitled and we’re the only fuckers laughing. It gets to one of Helena’s scandalous lines - ‘I haven’t been fucked like that since I was in grade school.’ - & literally, the guy running the festival got up & left. Edward & I were still the only ones laughing. You could hear two idiots up in the balcony cackling through the whole thing.” -Brad Pitt.

Because storytelling in and of itself is a wholly human concern.
I’m a huge Fincher fan, his films are incredibly diverse and complex while always avoiding being (I detest the word) pretentious. He’s an incredible director! I apologize for the lack of “The Game” in there, I searched and searched but couldn’t find a poster of any kind for it to match the minimalist theme.
