I am Jack’s complete lack of surprise. This month’s premium podcast has been a long time coming but due to popular demand we finally decided to dive into the filmography of David Fincher, specifically focusing on several movies we haven’t covered in great detail before. We start the discussion with his iconic ’90s films Seven, The Game and Fight Club before moving on to the 2000s with Panic Room, Zodiac and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Discussion points include Fincher’s fondness for dark subject matter and twist endings, the influence of his title sequences, his innovative use of visual effects, and the transition from film to digital. So does Fight Club still belong in IMDb’s All-Time Top 10 or is it coasting on ’90s nostalgia? Is The Curious Case of Benjamin Button a beautiful love story for the ages or is it a grande-latte enema? Is Zodiac David Fincher’s ultimate masterpiece? Find out what’s in the box and download this month’s premium podcast below.
