Coolness : ‘[the films of] David Fincher’

I love me some fanmade stuff.

Some of the geekiest and funnest experiences on the internet are fans nerding out and creating their own content to celebrate their fandom.

Case in point is Kees van Dijkhuizen. He has decided to create a twelve-part series showcasing the work of  twelve of his favourite directors. He has already started with a couple videos showcasing the films of Sofia Coppola and the films of Danny Boyle.

His latest one is my favourite so far as he featuring the works of the great David Fincher. Hot on the heels of The Social Network basically kicking ass and taking names, this video is the perfectly telling of a great director’s career…. so far.

Things like this make me eager as a film nerd because far too often you don’t really get a chance to look back at a career until it’s towards the end in some Hall of Fame-type ceremony. In this case, we are smack dab in the middle of it and with a slate of great films coming up, this video brilliantly captures the essence of Fincher.

 

 

What makes the video that much more awesome is that it manages to capture the perfect way that Fincher uses music. With a soundtrack that has Kanye West’s “Power,” Working for a Nuclear Free City’s “Silent Melody,” and Arcade Fire’s “My Body is a Cage”, how can you go wrong?

The films featured in the montage are:

Alien 3
Seven
The Game
Fight Club
Panic Room
Zodiac
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
The Social Network

Not bad at all.
