David Fincher: The (brief) PopWatch retrospective

Posted on

Today, New York’s Lincoln Center concludes its “Under the Sign of Fincher” event with two screenings of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button followed by a discussion session led by the man himself. (You can cick here to see if tickets are still available this late in the game.) Although he’s currently being hailed as a sentimental artist for directing the aforementioned Oscar-contending movie, the Lincoln Center dug back through some of his, well, somewhat less sentimental past films this long weekend, screening Se7en, Fight Club, and Zodiac. For those of you who A) didn’t know about this event B) live too far from NYC to have made the trek or C) spent the entire weekend at home nursing a hangover, we put together a little sampling of Fincher’s work, including my personal favorite moment: the (very NSFW) scene below from Fight Club (other NSFW scenes from Se7en and Zodiac after the jump).

WARNING: These clips, like Fincher’s movies, are not for the faint of heart. They are chock full of violence and profanity. Please proceed with caution.

Fight Club (NSFW!):

Anyone make it to the Lincoln Center this weekend and care to share? What are some of your favorite Fincher moments? Did you find anything about Fincher’s Benjamin Button that’s stylistically similar to his work on those earlier films?

Se7en (NSFW and SPOILER)

Zodiac (NSFW)
