Watch a Video That Explains How David Fincher Does What He Does

By

Did you see Gone Girl this weekend and come out of it wondering how David Fincher was able to make a creepy book even creepier? Then you should watch this video from Tony Zhou, which gives a short rundown of Fincher's aesthetic trademarks. (Did you realize that that cold and unemotional feeling is a result of his streamlined camera movement and a lack of close-ups? We did not!) The title comes from this Fincher quote by way of Stephen Soderbergh: "There's potentially a hundred different ways to shoot something, but at the end of the day there's really only two, and one of them is wrong." That other way, of course, is the one employed by Michael Bay.
