ON THIS EPISODE:
Danny and Brandon engage in a discussion on one of the more polarizing modern-era directors, DAVID FINCHER. Is Fincher a true auteur or is he just another Hollywood director exploiting the perversity and fears of a specific demographic? Is he stylistically unique or is he just an amalgamation of borrowed techniques. The opinions vary so wildly on this filmmaker that it’s a conversation that we needed to have. Whether your favorite is SEVEN or FIGHT CLUB, GONE GIRL or THE SOCIAL NETWORK, you probably have a strong opinion about this director.
This is the Every Frame A Painting video that Danny eluded to in the first segment, it’s definitely worth a watch – some really interesting insights:
Here’s that cover of “Immigrant Song” by Led Zepplin that we discussed from “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. I have always been a fan of Trent Reznor’s reimagings – The cover of “Dead Souls” by Joy Division that Nine Inch Nails have on “The Crow” (1994) soundtrack is also worth a listen.
