It is absolutely gorgeous to look at what this movie is doing with. Color is so striking an inventive. It has an electric movie and when a movie feels electric off the way through you can often give the director a lot of credit for that.

"Aaron thank you for letting me do this thank you for doing. I hope it's not just the right amount of excruciating. But but i wanna i wanna i wanna move this. I want to try to cover as much ground as possible. Because you know. I'm easily board but But i also want to give you But i have sort of subdivided in terms of you know just overall kind of progressions in in in casting and production and post production. I wanted to start. I I've always found your writing appealing personally. in the same way that i always love bill goldman's and and the reason for that is you're a decidedly serious person who is actually writing comedies about a dramatic ventures that have real stakes and end the example. That i have is like butch and sundance where they're debating the different ways that the super policy might kill them when he says they could go for position they can start a rockslide. That could get us that way. What else could they do. I'm treating the next line. But it's a could surrender of albion account on that. Tell me about and that was a occurred to me on social network that that you were that you were doing this thing that the the writing the the storytelling was extensively Comic in in. And i don't mean that in a derogatory lightweight sense It was wildly entertaining in talking about things. That were you know. truly dramatic and is not a is that something that you're conscious of or am my of of disappeared on my own. It's something that i'm conscious of and by the way bill goldman mentor me. Beginning from mike early twenties you know he passed away a few years ago. You know. we're very close. He was teaching me before we met with his with a screenplay with A nonfiction and then he a red by i play which was a few good men and he saw something in me. And if you want to teach me how to write screenplays but yes. I always think first of all if you can tell serious story. Funny you're you're doing yourself a big favor. Part of it might just come from an insecurity. Maybe a healthy insecurity of a comedy drama. I am not good enough at Either events do only one of them commit something pitches while or their other. I mean obviously goldman is one but are there other Heroes personal screenwriting heroes at. You can point to in sort of say this is. This is something off from them or their work. This is something that you know. Certainly tchaikovsky the answer is our number screenwriters in patty tchaikovsky For a host of reasons. Both my brothers herman joseph Billy wilder true There are things. I get from a contemporary screenwriters as well.

HBO's Euphoria releases Christmas episode

"I just gotta put a little warning out to the parents out there who have kids in high school. I'm not sure you want to watch euphoria. Or maybe you do to give you complete terror as to what is really going on or could be going on. Insert and it is going on in certain cars, but I mean it is aggressive on the Internet is causing a lot of opportunities out there that was not as easily accessible. As it was back in the day. So I mean, do you believe that to be accurate of what's going on? Because it's I mean it is. I mean, I'm like sitting there with my stomach moving around watching the show. Idea. I do believe that that's what's going on. Because if you have to think about how removed you are from that world, you know, even when you're a senior in high school, you look back at freshman year like I was never that young and shrimpy when I was a freshman, like, why are these kids so young looking now? I remember being that young when I was a freshman. But you were so you multiply that by being removed 5 10 15 2030 years from high school, and you don't know what kids are dealing with. And I think that's also the point of the show is it is this shocking warts and all account sometimes a bit stylistic, but still as realistic as possible. Trail of what young adults are dealing with today in today's world, what It's like to be a kid in the social media age and all of this, it's really striking. And I think it Zane. The accurate which is both Stunning and also a little tragic When you consider what that everything that happens in that show and what the characters go through, mentally emotionally and everything I mean back when young old car was a young Carm like somebody Smoking marijuana and ice cold like that was only is a crazy person. This is like I mean, wow. Okay, I'm up against the news here, so I gotta get on out here, Josh. Oh, you're the best editorial director Fan cited.

"I think he's interview with david from the magazine. He has incredible sense of humor. I think he really is like. I'd love to see him do like a kind of screwball. Comedy does elements. Mike for sure but like i'd love to see him do something that he's like pure funny even benjamin button. You've got those little vignettes with the guy keeps been struck by lightning. And it's done in this separate Buster key in that. That is such funny. That i mean it kind of like you know puts the brakes on the on the phone pretty hard every time that comes in but at each forgive it and after the second or third time you know you you're kind waiting for the fifth and six this is i think i think people forget about that sense of humor and take his. He's such a good interview watching him. Hearing him reading him being interviewed but some people might take things. He says a bit too seriously. Yeah just having a laugh with us. This is why. I'm kind of skeptical about this council culture thing. Because i think he might have said this is jerry can now. It's like a very serious. But i mean we should mention the fabulous story from fight club since we haven't spoken about fight club. I'm about the lying in the script that he was told to take out by the studio and he replaced it with Has become like an iconic klein in the annals of history which malla asleep so Brad pitt and afterwards she says. I haven't been like that since grade school which i'm sure we'll get leaked on this podcast but yeah. That was a pure like that. I believe annoyed even more but they can take access to you by that point said he. He agreed that was one thing in the team. Change this lowest. They agreed whatever it was to keep in ways changed it to an. He made it worse. So david fincher so we will be talking about bank on a future episode. You pick up the issue as well which has lots of bank related content in there. I still can't get over that title as a terrible character. Say manque all the way through. That just doesn't work in english. Maybe we should adopt nineteen forties american. Hollywood accents when we say Adam hannah thank you so much for joining me today. To talk about david fincher. It's been awhile since we spoke. It's been a pleasure. thanks thanks. it's been nice like a nice tonic for lockdown to. You're talking about david finch. I think he's a. He's a good lockdown filmmaker to get into as well because you know not very many films which is the ideal films would recommend mindhunter afterwards. Yes to fight. Iowa's such a skeptic with mine. I didn't like i watched the first came out. Didn't like it and then came back to about a year ago and radiate my words. I think is fantastic. I he said like he said in recent interviews for mind he's probably not going to make a third season. Which makes me really sad. Because i think it's is already ready. Great any like fincher show but like a great crime show. We don't get lot those nowadays. It's all very hokey true crime but mind hunter really holds up of making more of it or is he just not doing it i think he said it's unlikely to get a season three. Because there's a whole there's a whole plot there is just like dangling the put the the kids again so the tv series mind hunter and the music videos to recommend that definitely part of the story particularly if you go read. Sidney ebonics amazing article digging into the relationship between fincher. Madonna is well worth a read because you we think he starts in the late nineties. But actually there's a whole story before that's all parts of the big fincher fable listeners. If you have any thoughts on venture. I'm sure many of you have many.

"But you're saying i really like it messes with us. It messes with our expectations. It messes with the kind of these trips of the good old american missouri. Boy and i really think like it's is a performance. I couldn't see anyone else doing i call. I find it very hard to imagine anyone else in this role in bet office. I think he was so brilliantly cast and it really is. I imagined a sign of kind of good directing and kind of good casting director if he was always liked the first choice for this role. I should probably read up on that. Because he you know he'd never worked with venture before and fincher does kind of like to Like to his favorites. And i can like i could see someone like brad pitt in this but i think if it was someone that we liked to bit more within hollywood. Then you know the the. The kind of the character dynamics wouldn't work. I think it kind of had to be someone that people will already like a little bit ready to hate to in order to balance how amy done. Who is the ultimate kind of like horrible female character. You do what. Ben affleck also rosamund. Pike gives this like outstanding performance into have gone from my i before this. She was any kind of known she'd been in a bond film but it was radio. Uk audiences knew who she was and this was like her baked kind of hollywood merriman and she got paid absolutely nothing for it. By by the academy. I i really think she was robbed of oscar. No the economy was mean anything. But yeah i think he is like i wish ben affleck morals like this. I think it was an incredible active self-deprecation on his part to take his role is not firing. Well i think he comes off particularly well. I remember tweet going around at the time or like just after saying like. Oh ben affleck doesn't understand ganga. He doesn't know like why he was casting goal and go. He just kind of turned up on. And i'm like no no. No i think that's why he was costing long. I think i think this was him kind of again. Like messing with mexico houses. An audience is a kind of a bit of a knowing wink on his paws. All his finishes this warm quotes in the in the director's commentary relief. Or maybe it's in another profile. I reg with fincher where he says that because they put into the scripts. The ben affleck's character has a villainous chin or an interest where chin he then went straight to his agents and said police casserole with a heroic chin causes causes zach night batman universe which really sells it for me solve speaks to what hundred you're just saying is the say no by where he gets the first press conference and he has to give this convincing kind of sympathetic smile to the to the television cameras and he gives. This is just amazing. Perfect like she teaching grid after someone. Who's like so media trained and is to having his picture taken. I just think it's astonishing that he manages to give that that that grin so convincingly because it's not it's obviously not his like natural. Smile is so beautiful. This character but it is is just like perfect. I think you're you're you're dead right hander. In terms of being someone. who's you know. He's likeable charming in his way. But he's he is inherently like untrustworthy worse. It might brad pitt. You'll always the on his side. And i think fincher affleck is well. Must've known the baggage he carries and that people have this preconception of him and he works perfectly and it feeds into that final at quite well whether he would actually be aboard by the ab don's baked plan or whether he would also be a little bit respect for love it and tempted and you need the embassy in this role if he had somebody and i wonder if ben affleck would i wonder if brought would have done this as good a job unwanted.

"So he's daphne. Wanna i'm always as as as adam said i I'm always excited. Wherever he's doing. I've been kind of waiting and waiting for new film since ganga came out so i'm thrilled that he's back in back in action so with that in mind i think it will be quite fascinating we've got. We picked three films from his career here to go in reverse chronological order because he has now got this this reputation where whatever he's going to do. Next is going to be scrutinize. It's going to be hyped. It's going to be real washing reworked many times. But let's go backwards so the first pick canneries yours. Can you please instruments to. you'll pick. Yes so. I have chosen congo which Obviously was his mice recent film of a last film before before mankad And it was a film that came out. When i was working in cinema so it kind of intrinsically felt like united special to me because i was there and like Watching people come and see it and watching her horrified they were low cases and it's it means enough to meet. I go tell you From the film on my body. So i feel like that's like that that's all i can say to. That stage is could film has a very special place in your heart and other. I love like you know. I'm sure we'll talk of his other films. That we haven't picked This for me. What i wanted to wrap for when we were deciding on the yeah. I think he's probably for me like the one. I maybe kiss his from a technical point of view but like from a olen bike. I boy a whole south point of view as obsolete my favorite his films so it was quite divisive with audiences when it was really so you said that you could get the temperature of how it was going down when you're working in the cinema getting complaints or what no. Guess i think i have a feeling. It came out around valentine's day On i seem to recall there were lots of people you went to see it. Maybe not realizing what they were seeing. thinking it was going to be a kind of like i know this came after golden girl but it was going to be kind of go on the train type film Where all kind of is like tied up in any little bow which the seasonal does not never been finches modus operandi So there were people who are just kind of very wrong footed by the will others who absolutely loved it. It was kind of like highly amusing to me is a like a jaded twenty one year old to be watching these people come out. This cinemalike furious that they invested this time into. This film is quite long film as well by blockbuster standards which is definitely kind of put. It was marketed. As i think they would just a bit surprised Enough so this would have been during your your tenure working with a white lie. You remember how it went down with critics out very much so yeah well i think first of all it was one of those before it was a film is one of these books which everyone seems to be talking about similar. I think something like we need to talk about kevin. It seems every time you go in a tube or bus or you know everyone was reading here and so it became very hyped. Book is heart. novel I remember. I sent him member of the talk around the time i mean among critics i think it was generally well liked and hannah said this site much. Impressive croft on displays is kinda tend to get with vinca. I remember there was a lot of talk around. I guess the themes of the film and this perceived misogynistic streak within it. It's it's an interesting one. I think jillian flynn who the novel and the screenplay i think so. Much of the seventy interesting the film come down to her screenplay and actually what she what she leaves out from her novel on what she kind of tweaked slightly I think Finches request Makes it more interesting film. And actually i think makes it more interesting work around on the novel which i think has has has kind of moral flaws in the film But yeah he's one of those where he hadn't made a phone for few years Got on this incredible run of making almost a film year around the mid nolte's leading up to Social network and Dragging tattoo is a years off. Came back with this. And i think i think as hannah says it. Wrong-footed allow people few people surprise Ben affleck collecting. His stock was particularly high at the time. This is kind of hit. His pre zack snyder. Justice league comeback He was may be seen as a gamble as well And yeah i think it was. Maybe one of those films where people's expectations Line with the product. But it certainly one which i think is has grown with each year niche subsequent viewing I think it's become a lot more You know yes. It's about more rich as phone. Yeah i went back and looks as i often do when i watch films that were co celebres. At the time. I looked at the letter. Box rankings and of course so many mutual friends and colleagues at righted. And it really goes from the one-star the five stars. I must say i loved this film. This is having watched. Maybe six or seven inch of films in the last week In anticipation of manque. An this is in the top. Half maybe four or five me. It's so slippery it's so It wrong footsie multiple times and ends on such a darkly comic tone. Might just land this final half hour which is so unexpected and bananas but as you as you say out of town both mentioned is where you go into a film at google thinking. Just the story of a crime case. A crime procedural. Maybe something where it's about this missing girl but also in a similar way to solve it becomes about the culture around the case as much as the case itself..

"You familiar. With the carol of the organ grinder's monkey that was the trailer for mac going upon net flicks on the fourth of december. And i think in some cinemas if you're outside of england west animus may still be open and sometime in august charlotte when they reopen under the prince charles's announced they will be sharing it so just a little shoutout. Check your indecent. Emma's ask them if they're gonna play. It gives them all the support. You can point how to check your local listings. So david fincher a big filmmaker not very big filmography only eleven films. I suppose before we dive into our specific picks. I'd like to know what your history fincher is. So at american. See i what was your first venture if you like him as filmmaker i mean he's he's one of my one of my boys for sure i strove into the first film of his watch. I think of feeding is probably something like fight club. I have a vague memory of what are staying up late at night with a friend watching it on like a repeat on channel four or something not really kind of getting and a suspected with one i revisited on a film studies course some point so i think that would have been most people that entry point one to probably two or three films around that time to eat a seven fight. Club certainly wasn't until much later that go into. I guess the stuff much like eighty three yen misincentives of really kind of he's been pretty consistently favorite filmmakers. I think the first film. I probably went to save his in the cinema would've been zodiac. Quite big gap between panic room in zodiac zodiac Actually went along on my own and sore at the how the lights which is now picture house down in southampton and i went to a late night screening of that and actually went back to more times that wait to see again. 'cause was just kind of so captivated an engrossed by And so yeah. I think my my love affair. Although we'll we'll we'll find out soon enough that might pick was not zodiac. I think just for the sake of bread potatoes. This podcast Could talk until the cows come home about that film. So wanted to switch gears. A bit but Seem to always go back to and that's my that's really a great love of mine. Is i features. He said a unique filmmaker anyway. The two of his films out first decade as a feature film maker became like rights of passage movies. Teenagers and i sort of grew up in in the nineties. Almost along with those films. Seven was film. That i definitely was too young to see on tally. When my dad would have been watching sky movies growing up and then when you're a super serious you know damn the man kind of teenager fight club comes along almost the perfect point in in two thousand but my first venture probably was alien three. I've i distinctly. Remember that film coming out so i remember the video game and i remember the controller. Cathy around it the divided opinion on it and then the fact that the alien quadrille ajay is. It's cold has been released and re released on all formats. Multiple times has given me many times to go back and rewatch hits. And of course we're not gonna get into whether the assembly cut of alien three is better than the theatrical because it is also. We don't want to litigator with something that could be talked about at length on twitter. But i think the first venture i saw cinema was probably the social network just because of the timing of it all he for me he was. Hsa dvd filmmaker seven and fight clip were in constant rotation. It's only been in the social network posts. Social network is career. That i've seen him on the big screen. So it's an interesting filmmaker. Actually how not to point to you is the example of youth on our podcast. But did you come. You must naturally a bit later. What was your first venture. Yeah well i guess like i i kind of was exposed to him before i really knew who he was because i watched a lot of like united they really really exist anymore but the tv channels that just shy music videos. And i kind of like. I would watch Constantly especially at sleep harvests n. T director of music videos for madonna. So i kind of had seen the videos for vogue and things and been like. Wow these really cool videos and it's not realized that it was him behind them And i think service while like hanoch room and Seven were kind of on tv. Law in the mid noughties. When i was geoghegan's my teens and i think they were kind of they would definitely want that. My mom was like now. You not watching. That is to cut adult for you So i think kind if like subconsciously. A web oversee the puzzle pieces didn't fall into place until much later. So i think like technically the first one i really like sat down and watched was was probably fight club I remember doing an essay on it for my year. Nine class on we would mooting about free. Will and i wrote a power play goal. She must have just hated me but Yeah i i guess from that on it was kind of a that was it. I was absolutely hooked. I still like. I was still even when he came out i was. I was definitely too young seaside yet. When it came out. But i do remember guarantee the social network my friends and obviously like you know they had no idea who david finch was. I already knew. Because i seen fight club on seven by that point. I remember the scene. Y i'm the big. The winkle twins are rowing the the cambridge regatta and the whole of the mountain king is playing. I remember having this transcendental. Come to jesus wires dislike. This is this is. This is what it's all about and I really truly credit him with being like along with the classic broke. Canon of martin scorsese quentin tarantino of being. Like you know the people who got me into film and made me realized this was something that i wanted to kind of make a career out of..

Yes i have decamped from from london to sheffield Because i didn't want to do another lockdown in london. so i'm. I'm living on my mum's sofa until january now Which is presenting it. United unique set of challenges especially when it comes to recording. A podcast of listeners will be delighted tonight that it took me a good like fifty minutes to find a microphone. That would work in this house and there is company. Amount thing you windows in our house. So if you hear any kind of drilling banging it's the double glazing man. I apologize that i mean. It's all part of the lockdown color. Also you have cats. So that's the good. That's a good counts miserable. Yeah you hear my. I go we. We do have family cats.

I will I will. I I do feel good about this. You run the risk Chris of actually offending the sensibilities of your own cr-heads by getting mine hundred too many good films is that what you want? We'll? See. We'll see I think their problem I think I'm governing with the mandate here. Is this a ploy is this a ploy from big the watch to valorize the power of television over films? Is that what you're doing many people are thinking is because we're about to put three music videos including Gina. Of My. Daughter we're talking about Cheney's got a gun for second. GotTa. Gun, I understand someone dies at the end of it and some shady things bad things are happening. But the what is happening in that music video I literally asking what did her daddy do? Yes. I, understand what implied but the plot is Jane got a gun. The music video is very hard to follow. Also, the eighties were extremely weird. This is one of these generational things where I guess that meant a lot you guys is just like, what have I inherited? Again, these are classic tactics from a party with false morals attempting to shift the blame shift attention onto a non offending party Jane got a gun, a wonderful music video that obviously set the stage for the kinds of films. The David Fincher was going to excel at, and you're trying to take that music video down a peg in an effort to collude. To disrupt the the the future of this show I want I want you to seriously consider what you're participating in here colluding lightest shining I have been a painting your side for the entire run of this show I pledged to continue doing just that and also asking basic questions like what happened in this film thing that you just made me watch because we learned unattended episode I don't always.

"Wherever you get your podcasts. Okay, we are back. We're ranking the top ten David fincher things. We've got to tears left. There was some controversy about where certain things fell in tears last time around. I'm just for the sake of conversation going to share the ten things and then we can hash it out I. don't really know how I'm going to manage this conversation. We're GONNA to do our best. The ten things for the top ten are as follows. The Jane's got a gun video by Aerosmith does horsh it Vogue video by Madonna. The Freedom Ninety video by George Michael, and then in chronological order seven, the game fight club Zodiac the curious case of Benjamin Button, the social network and gone girl. So Number Ten, I assume that Chris you're going to say we do three music videos at ten, nine, eight. No, that's not fun. Right. I don't know what do you think I agree that it's really boring in bad less making two three videos at the top. So I would like to start a point of order to reopen..

"Somewhere in between David Fincher we're going to talk about the top ten David fincher things. There's only ten things left based on what we've picked before. We do that though you know there's a piece on the ringer today by Alan Segel about all the UNMADE David fincher projects and perhaps more than anybody of his generation he gets associated with big name projects and then doesn't necessarily always follow. Through on them, I wanted to talk about a couple of them and maybe figure out which one you guys specifically would have wanted to see the most out of this list. We don't have to run through every single film I would encourage people to read Allen's piece but what is it about him? You think the gets him. So close to the flame before pulling out of a project Amanda. High standards. And also, it's interesting. You know reading that Great Alan Segel it's so funny how the and. We know this to be true. We just talked about how money dictates everything, but the industry is set up in a way where it's like never the person with talent and ideas making any of the calls and that David Fincher who is very demanding which I respect one hundred percent and really is only going to do things if he does it. His Way, and thus has to quit a lot of things because the circumstances in a creative project are lining up with his vision, which by the way in any creative project, a ton of development and a ton of people just being like, well, what about best he is seen as an anomaly and he is an anomaly because he's one of the only people who just like Nah no. Thanks I'm going to go do my thing. I to me I feel like more talented artists should have the ability to be like, no I will do things the way that I want you in my world. Those would be decision makers at least more of the time. But you know we live in the world of money. Chris what about you? What do you think is his driving the way that fincher makes us decisions well, it's similar to what a man to say about his desire for creative control mixed with an interest in still participating in mainstream popular culture. So I mean he is associated with. Tent Pole style blockbusters like for Instance Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea is something that he had been associated with for a long time that he was gonna make it with a variety of different actors. I think Brad Pitt was like the main person and that would have been a huge Disney movie that would have been like a giant effort on Disney's part. That's a theme park ride right there. So he's he's more I think when it comes to stuff like that the kinds of movies he gets associated with are the kinds of. Movies people are like yeah. But I have a couple of notes like could do something like this so that we could make sure the park ride isn't too scary or something like that and David fincher is like no make fucking terrifying fuck off. He's expressed very serious contempt over the years for people who have ideas but don't make anything. He doesn't really like that know even though I have some shades of executive in my in my professional life I also have a little bit of contempt for that approach however. I think Amanda and I have talked a lot on this show about a Lotta movies over time that probably could've used some of that executive guardrail and there's a there's a complexity to that issue when you're David fincher and your perfect, you don't need those people. But when you're less talented, you might need those people. So it's not it's not so black and white, the artist is. Always. Right here either I don't think..

"Yeah. They're really enjoyable that was like the ninety ninth take like David fincher just like eating out every sense I'm ocean or like believability from you but. You know what? I'd been thinking when I was going through all this I was like you know what? God dammit why Hasni ever made a musical as well? Yes, he has. Is he has he's essentially making these Bob Fosse. Videos with Paula Abdul. For a two year stretch and He did I have no idea whether adventure things Paula Abdul can sing that I guarantee you. He thinks he's an incredible choreographer and dancer and David Fincher for this period of time I think he sort of. Moved on from this a bit although you can still see it when like. He just decides to expose Daniel Craig's torso at various points in Dragon Tattoo. But he's fascinated with the human body and how it moves and I think so she And it's really interesting to watch him kind of like approach this from awake I always think of musicals is this idea of like you know the person filming it or the person choreographing directing it is really like attached to like. The like let every voice sing aspect of musicals but I think ventures only interested in the human bodies moving the music is secondary, maybe the rhythm matters or whatever. But it's fascinating to see him come at something that we think of is so like a a few sieve and full of emotion and he's like, no, I'm interested in the way the knee moves. I'm interested in the way an elbow crosses and stuff like that. It's so cool. Yes. So the the the video that were essentially talking about his coldhearted, which is from nineteen, eighty nine and is in fact an. To seen from all that jazz the Bob Fosse film where he's doing the choreography for takeoff with us and This was an interesting video to watch as a seven year old I would say it It created some new feelings inside me. She we talk about the erotic awakening that music videos provided at that time. Yes. Please speak on it Chris. Had just like a lot of stuff in music videos that was you wouldn't see ordinarily let's just put it that way both in terms of dance. In terms of the human body being exposed. And I remember this was on a loop. And I felt things you know what? I felt things that as a young man, I only have felt. The first time going.

"Four Wait a minute. This is fucking bullshit this. This. Is. Ten thirty seconds of anything filmed Oh my God then put it higher i. It's not number twenty, four it's not number twenty four. That's fine. I look forward to hearing you explain the merits of of commercial, which is not even among my top ten gap commercials which I have in my head. But whatever briefly, for context, this twenty fourteen campaign called dress normal that David fincher was brought on board to direct guess during the production of gone girl I don't know where he finds the time though my. Favorite of these commercials I assume it's Chris's well takes place at a driving range where a model is dancing to a nineteen fifties pop song while a guy in a leather jacket hits the driver off the tee It's a commercial that makes no sense and it definitely rules. I'm not sure if it was harder than other things on this list though I think it but what do you think Chris what do? I, think I feel like a deep connection to the to the characters in this commercial. I once love the woman who is dancing in jeans and I'm like cool jeans and then I'm also like your boyfriend seems pretty cool too because he's got good form off the tee. He shot it in the city of industry in one night I think in the middle of the night, and it's just like a perfect commercial. Let me ask you something the two of you as people who David French work. And as people who liked golf, do you think that David French our respects you a as golfers Commercial I don't to take away I, don't. I. Don't think David fincher would like me. That's not what this is about. I really really want certain filmmakers to like me I call David Fincher to think I'm pathetic I expect David fincher to know that I, have a golf training aid called a G. box and he should want me to drown in the Pacific. Ocean. Because of that. Okay. As long as you know that that that I'm fine with putting this commercial wherever. Okay impertinent question. Do you think adventure has ever held a golf club in his hands? Absolutely I. Think he thinks they're cool and also really remember uses one to hit Stellan skarsgard in strategy to so I. Think he thinks it's a useful useful weapon and aesthetically.

"Tattoo Social Network, you know gone girl you know what? It is right away kind of kind of experience and I guess it's a little bit unclear to us. If he made those movies in the two thousand, ten's in part because it was just harder to get movies made in. These were the kinds of movies that get made and could apply his interest to the game and and and fight club movies like that were a little bit significantly more esoteric in terms of like the stories that they were trying to tell but. I I just find Manque as a as a cultural object in two thousand twenty to be really really interesting not because it's a Hollywood history, not just because it's fincher but not is black and white, but because it's just not mainstream at all and I, wonder if there's going to be similar effect here where. Similar to the Irishman where some people fired up and they're like, wow, the new film from David Fincher I just finished watching the social network. I can't wait and then they're confronted with a lot of an old screenwriter talking about William Randolph hearst that just. It's very curious choice but Amanda were you what do you think is animating that the bank decision making? Well I I do think it's a little bit personal which you know is interesting. It's obvious a screenplay written by his father and. You know. The, if he does ever talk about emotions tate's grief and I think Benjamin Button in a lot of ways `bout grief and trying to connect someone in because that's not how his movies don't like to confront emotion head on it has to be through the lens of like Brad Pitt as old baby but. This slightly like. It I think given the the nature of the the origin of the scraps. This probably has something to do with some form of emotions though I'm fascinated thi which emotions that they are and how they express themselves. I do also think that like old Hollywood was a terrible racist exploitative place like there is. Plenty of room for everything that we know from David fincher aside for maybe like you know what's in the box like in this movie and who knows I wouldn't put it past him. So I'm I'm very curious to see how the future of it all expresses itself. In manque, because I like I don't think it's just GonNa. Be You know Lala Land I mean no one thinks it's going to be land but you know what? I mean like that. Rosie. Vision of old Hollywood I think there will be a lot of grievances CR YOU and UNMAKE Amal in on bank I I'm very curious to see if this is his silence if this is The one that I've always wanted to make movies like this I don't think he's that guy. He's a commercial and music video director and all the movies he's made. are essentially genre pictures blown out to the nth degree. So I would imagine that this is more about. Him Getting to make a movie that's obviously very personal in its origin, but you know. The making citizen Kane is like a pretty. Gripping Story and the characters involved in it or it's got all the stuff that he's interested in it's got power. It's got credit got creative genius it's got. People steamrollering each other. So I I'm pretty I'm pretty fascinated but I don't necessarily think it's going to be. He's never struck me as the kind of person where it's like were it not for the machinations of of capitalism he would be making Jim Jarmusch movies like these are the movies he would make He's he's a he's way more. An accolade of really Scott and John. Cavities and I think that will probably inform even as more personal quote unquote artistic work..

"In conversation with Aaron Sorkin Mega sentimentality and I think that's what makes it so much excite you know. So exciting is that find that balance but? I don't know what are what are you supposed to hang onto feeling wise from David fincher movie besides like dread and cynicism, and we've got to talk to the big pictures number one feelings, merchants Sean fantasy yeah. I mean, this is why this is. This is my guy is I think he's as interest. He's more interested in psychology than feelings and psychology can be a very powerful tool in your filmmaker and he's able to pack and explore consciousness without necessarily dealing with the. Explosive external experience of emotion and obviously repressed gentleman that I am I can understand that in a very acute way. But I think also I mean I think the point that you're making crisis is. On the one hand a bit absurd in the context of this conversation because for me when you talk about directors like he's at or near the top of the list of over the last thirty years and is very important and we have kind of valorize that Quartet on the show in part because I think those four white men represent kind of like ven diagram of our interests as a trio and even Amanda I. Like we can kinda talk about Soderbergh on every episode and have fun and talk about Tarantino in every episode and have fun and so you know there are other filmmakers. You know we love Credit Gerwig on this show but she's only made a few movies. You can't talk about the her work and fincher has a pretty long lifespan for an active filmmaker. You know he has ten feature films as these two TV shows. I wonder if he has more in common with in emotions merchant. Steven Spielberg though then he does some of those other directors in his kind of contemporary cohort that you're talking about because of that mainstream accessible approach to storytelling..

"David ventured demands total control over almost all aspects of moviemaking and studios are less willing than ever to grant that control and so the kinds of movies that he's wanted to make, and there are a great many unmade David fincher projects we. We will talk about I think in in the episode later this week but. He's tried to get a lot of things off the ground in recent years and hasn't been able to get in and ultimately it seems like certainly there are budgetary concerns because they don't make the kind of mid level thriller that we love on this show that he excels at, and also because studios want control of things, they want to be able to run things and David fincher wants to run things. So I'm curious what you guys think about kind of his standing in the modern movie culture make notwithstanding because we haven't seen it and you know if you think there are maybe some other reasons why he hasn't been as productive as movie maker in the last half decade. To hear him because he doesn't get offered those movies for the exact reasons that you're saying but I think I think he'd be willing to participate I mean look he's not like a snob. He makes adaptations of bestselling novels and huge stories, facebook, Gillian Flynn bestsellers, and you know. If you if you. If somebody was like seven is coming out in three months. You'll be like that's going to be a hit like the idea behind these movies is usually incredibly. Mainstream. Accessible mass-appeal movies I think the real reason is that most movies that get made and get pushed now are made with an idea towards making several. Sequels and several and making them part of a franchise and using them as part of a launching pad for a larger three, hundred and sixty degree multi-platform effort and. That requires the participation and sign off like so many people. And ultimately, David fincher does not want to probably. Shared his vision with Kevin. Or whoever you know what I mean like David, your might make an incredible marvel movie, but he's going to make it the best way he wants to make it not so that they can also do for. God of thunder in three years you know like it it it's not. It's not about like setting anything else other than the way. The best way to tell the story men, what do you think? Why do you think he is not as much in the center of movie? Culture? Right now. Well I think everything that you guys said is true and I just want to say like Kinda onset strategy aside, just the ability to be like, no, we can't do it my way. So I'm not going to do it that that's inspiring to me. That is the definition of success like David fincher made it. That's exhilarating I. I would also point out that he's been making minehunter and seems pretty involved in that and that sure seems like it takes a Lotta time definitely takes a lot of time to watch it so. And he has. He was at the forefront of. Prestige directors switch into TV and kind of making premium tv what it is so. You can read that a Lotta different ways that sure seems like he just has more control and possibility. In td right specifically with mine hunter and you know things take time. The church seems like his projects take time on the flip of what you're talking about Sean and Amanda you know we. There's one conversation about like why isn't fincher more part of mainstream filmmaking these days hasn't made a few in awhile and obviously..

"You are like me in many ways Taipei organized. A bit more obsessive. And a bit more. Spit stormier and Chris. Ryan a bit more cynical. So what is it about venture that that you connect with? The same things but from the perspective of seeing myself or what I would like to be I mean for me it's control perfectionism obsession which are all offshoots of control. As you know, my therapist likes to tell me but. Yeah someone who is just on it and I think like, Chris, I respond to the presence of this idea of being in the presence of a masterful make everything is excellent and we'll go through filmography. He does a thing that he does a lot of things that like I Amanda Dobbins Aesthetically don't really like I mean you know my guy never shoots like in broad daylight except for one very scary scene which we will. Talk about but like this shadows and grinding s and everything's like two and a half hours long, and it's like always about sad boys and I'm just like you know those are that traditionally I have no patience for but my guy is just excellent at what he does and everything is so intentional and so considered and you know exactly why he's doing it and it's undeniable and I have so much respect for that level of. Perfectionism and and and control I would love to be able to control any part of my life or world the way that he is able to control. His filmmaking process and I think. We'll talk about that approach because that other people don't always like it as much and I think I also relate to the fact that a lot of people are like, David. French. was really good at his job but what an asshole and I'm like. Well, maybe maybe I. That somehow and he's like he's doing it for the asshole. So to say, which is not a particularly invoke thing to say right now obviously, you have to walk line with it but Yeah, there's nobody more on it. In my opinion, you know what the thing is is I was watching 'cause we watched seven for Rewatch ables obviously even going back through a lot of his work for these pods that we're going to do this week.

He is the cinematographer who has worked with David Fincher, a number of times the nominated for Oscars twice. And perhaps most popular among. Our community. But what do I know maybe not he shot fight club. So he has you know he was nominated for the social network. I think grow with the Dragon Tattoo as well for the Oscars he's up for an emmy now, four tales from the loop, which is an amazing. SCIFI series. But he has one of the Great Hollywood industry inside stories his grandfather was a still photographer who was nominated for Oscars back when still photography for. Features was enough of a part of the process that there is a category in the Oscars that his father was a legendary cinematographer who shot among other things bladerunner with Ridley. Scott and Jeff actually was onset quite a bit. So we talked about that today we talk about his apprenticeship with his father becoming a loader a second I we talk about him working with. Spend Nykvist who if you don't know who he is we talked about it in the podcast, but he's one of the greatest cinematographers ever who shot most of. Ingmar Bergman's movies and Jeff were closely with him. Subject is just steeped in cinematography from the last half century. And he has shot these amazing movies. He shot film he shut digital. He's been involved in the development of the red sensors along with venture. And don't cut out of this interview early because at the end, he gives what I can only describe as a masterclass on camera movement from the way that he and David fincher approach it and you just it's just so special that we got this in that.

"david fincher" Discussed on Show Me the Meaning!

"This is just feels like a ride, and it's just a cool different. I've never I'd never seen a movie with his vibe before with this just totally like nihilistic, but just saying like truth bombs that like, you know, fell real that like, and it was about very contemporary things. You know, I mean. Yeah. Name a movie that has that has that kind of like like relevance to the culture that it's a part of. And then also is a really, well, they'd movie that doesn't feel like any other movies. I can't name one. The part of the reason I think it resonates speaks really well to modern nation, especially under consumer culture or capitalism, more generally. And it it's weird because it gives kind of solution in the sense of fight club and project mayhem and people kind of focus on that. But also at least especially in in David fincher. But I also think the book a little bit it. Kind of Sieverts out a little bit. But people don't really kind of ignore that part. But I think you know, the way that people were feeling was can come out nine thousand nine hundred nine. Yeah. In one thousand nine thousand nine about consumer culture and ads for Calvin Klein, and all those things those are still the same images that we are constantly subjected to you know, on TV on radio. Nobody listens to radio probably on YouTube channels, and it's kind of articulating people's unspoken rage away. So is that what you mean, you you? So when you see your average person with a fight club host on it who probably hasn't thought about the movie beyond having seen it a handful of times. Do you think that the reason why they love it so much is because assuming it's guy they similarly feel emasculated by consumer capitalism. I don't think that your average person has thought that deeply about it. Yeah. Like is the bro. You've been like a subconscious level. I mean, I feel that. Yeah. Like they understand where they're coming from. They might not on their everyday life like feel it. But they can see like, yeah. I can see how someone in this environment. And that we this culture, we live in could be you know, bombs, right? Does that mean, what are the truth terms are on? We wanna know the truth. Every fucking line is just like fucking love, David fincher and Tyler no. You're like you're one of those people. All I'm saying is that you can fuck in. Thank you know, feel something is true. Without you know, like like, it's very there's like aphorisms in it. Yeah. Listen maggots. You're not special. We are all the all singing dancing crap of the world. That's just kind like recognizing fucking like meaningless Nissen your life. Even if you yourself don't feel like your life is being as like, yeah. I get that. I can you know, I can relate to that. The things you own running you. Yeah. I mean, there are levels of awareness though, that aren't necessarily reflective right? Consciousness affective as well, and the embodied human conscious experience isn't always necessarily, quote, unquote aware, even if it's a wear, and so I think that just because people don't recognize maybe the truth bombs in order to elicit them. Putting a poster on their wall doesn't mean they're not being affected by the truth bombs, and there's an aesthetic to the film that is extremely appealing. It's kind of dark. It's really slick dated fincher is a very clean filmmaker. Even though this film is kind of messy clean, but the messing is clean messing. And so I think just an emotional level at the affect of level this film is appealing at that level. But also for dudes in particular. I'd be curious. Why this why mentioned at the outset that there is something about how this appeals to do all the dudes that I know have click poster on their wall or went for as for Halloween as Tyler Durden at some point in their life or something along those lines, right? Like, I it's just extremely common. So I wonder if there's an unconscious desire to project the very same thing that Tyler Durden is a. Very projection of in the film, if he the way that you wish you could fuck he looks the way you wish you.
