Why David Fincher chose his films  DEC 30 2011

David Fincher explains why he chose to make each of his films.

The Social Network (2010): "You don't get scripts like that every day. You don't get a studio coming to you saying, 'We just fucking love this script. Let's make it into a movie.' So often people are mitigating against the disaster or trying to cover the downside and saying, 'Well, OK, look, the script is great, but...' ['Can you make something out of it?'] Yeah.

I have given Fincher shit about the films he's chosen to make but it turns out that he's better at spotting good material than I am. Go figure. (via @khoi)
