David Fincher's new film "Mank" is coming soon, so John Mills, Brandon-Shea Mutala, and Tristan Riddell are reviewing all of Fincher's directorial works every week until release.

    House of Fincher - 07 - Zodiac

    A full five years after Panic Room, David Fincher found himself once
    more on the trail of a serial killer. This one, however, is a
    terrifying true-life story of a murderer who defied capture and
    terrorized California, spurring conspiracy theories to this day. Your
    hosts explore the differences between the theatrical and director’s
    cuts, how Zodiac sparks on Fincher’s own fascination with the
    disturbed, and different actors’ ways to handle a director who, by
    that point in his career, had learned how to get precisely what he
    wanted and was no longer willing to compromise on what it would take
    to get it.

    House of Fincher - 06 - Panic Room

    Three years after Fight Club, David Fincher decided to create a “small
    movie” that steered him heavily back into suspense thriller territory.
    Starring Jodie Foster, Panic Room situated itself in a single house,
    with a terrified mother and daughter, as they worked to outwit and
    outlast a gang of thieves hell-bent on capturing the lost money from
    the previous owner. Despite the supposedly small scale, your hosts
    explore how Fincher pushed the envelop with effects, camerawork, and
    performance to create a memorable and entertaining film that helped
    refine his techniques afterward.

    House of Fincher - 05 - Fight Club

    There was one film in 1999 that everyone was waiting for from George
    Lucas, a surprise hit that redefined Keanu’s career, and an Austin
    Powers sequel that made buckets of money. But David Fincher left his
    own indelible mark on the times as he re-teamed with Brad Pitt to
    deliver the screen version of Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club. Teaming
    also with Edward Norton and Helena Bonham Carter, join the hosts as
    they speak to what Fight Club means to them, what it seemed to mean to
    the world at the time, and what they think of that last shot.

    House of Fincher - 04 - The Game

    After Se7en, David Fincher transitioned to a more intimate tale told
    on a grand scale. The Game found its way to audiences with Michael
    Douglas and Sean Penn filling the lead roles, and Fincher’s growing
    comfort with spectacle and misdirection put to full use. Regarded by
    many as somewhat disappointing after the bravura Se7en, discover the
    deep resonance that one of the hosts has with the film and the
    noticeable earmarks of Fincher’s trajectory in playing with
    expectation and fantasy.

    House of Fincher - 03 - Seven

    Working past the debacle that was the production of Alien 3, David
    Fincher quickly found his way to a film that would serve as his
    calling card for years afterward. Se7en gave him the chance to tell a
    story outside the shackles of studio interference, uniting him with
    the talents of Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kevin
    Spacey. They created a film that shocked audiences, stunned critics,
    and created a fanbase that follows him to this day.

    House of Fincher - 02 - Alien 3

    After years in the music video industry, David Fincher was handed the
    break of a lifetime to the direct the third installment in the
    landmark Alien franchise. The first two defined genre filmmaking and
    Fincher found himself challenged by second-guessing executives, an
    Oscar-nominated star, and numerous production challenges. The film was
    not received warmly by critics or fans. We discuss the merits of this
    maligned sequel, and whether the “workprint version” released in 2003
    as a direct-to-disc special edition is more worthy of recognition as
    the work of David Fincher.
