Directors of Cinema
Episode 4

Episode 4- David Fincher

Matthew Goudreau published on

Welcome to another episode of Directors of Cinema, the podcast that highlights the careers of cinema’s most prominent directors. Each week, host Matthew Goudreau and a guest discuss selected works of a director chosen by the guest.

On this episode, Matt welcomes special guest Tyler Christian to the airwaves. After Tyler gives some background as to how his love for movies began, the boys dive into talking about Fincher. After a successful career in music videos and commercial directing, Fincher broke onto the movie scene with Alien 3. Although it was met with mixed reception at best (Fincher has since shown his disapproval with the finished product), it did open the door of oppurtunity for Fincher to continue his film career.

As always, you can listen to the show directly on Shoutengine or download it for later enjoyment. Thanks again!

    A bit weak in my opinion. It would benefit from a more tasteful and detailed analysis of Fincher's work, cause I don't think comments like "cool camera movements" or "good script/bad script" can quite cut it now that plenty of other podcasts do a much better job of deciphering directors. Check out the "Director's Club" podcast for example. They've done a 3-hour in depth analysis of Fincher's work where you really get a taste of new things you didn't even consider about his craft. Hope my feedback helps :)
