Dark Eye: The Films of David Fincher Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David Fincher is young, talented, and something of an outsider, with a dark cinematic vision — from the visceral serial killer drama Seven to the urban gothic thriller Panic Room.

In Dark Eye, written with Fincher's full involvement and featuring in?depth interviews, journalist James Swallow offers a complete survey of the director's work. He begins with Fincher's early career at special effects house Industrial Light & Magic, where he worked on films like Return of the Jedi and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, as well as commercials and music videos. He then looks at each of the director's major films: Seven, Alien 3, The Game, Fight Club, and Panic Room.

Rounding out the book is a view ahead to the films in David Fincher's future as well as a reference section with an in?depth bibliography and website listing.

Review:

"Swallow leaves no stone unturned in his analysis, documenting each film's genesis and development, cuts and changes....This eye-opening book is highly recommended..." Library Journal
