David Fincher Weekend

Curator's note

With his forensic eye for cinematic detail, rigorous grip on narrative essentials and fearless innovative spirit, director David Fincher makes films that demand attention and never let the viewer off the hook. Over two consecutive evenings - Friday 7th and Saturday 8th December - Film4 is celebrating one of Hollywood's most exciting talents with four very different pictures that range across his 20-year career. And with Fincher having just turned 50 this year, it's very much a filmography that's still just getting started.

Our David Fincher Weekend promises precision-tooled filmmaking of the highest order - over two nights you won't find a single shot out of place, a sequence that hasn't been honed to perfection or an image that doesn't carry maximum impact. In the meantime, make sure you watch our video interviews - either here on the site or on the channel - to get more insight into Fincher's formidable creative process.
