The master of the feel-bad movie is back… Coinciding with the release of his new film The Killer, we present a nearly complete selection of David Fincher’s gritty, visceral, and highly stylized works.
After carefully honing his visual skills with video clips for artists like Madonna, Sting, and The Rolling Stones, maverick prodigy David Fincher quickly became one of the most celebrated filmmakers in Hollywood. Although Fincher met with derision early on, as the director of 1992s critically excoriated Alien³ (which we’ll screen in its superior Assembly Cut), his work on Se7en (a 35mm print will screen exclusively at our friends of KINO Rotterdam) won him critical approval and unanimous acceptance across the industry and marked only the beginning of an influential, splashy body of work. Exploring a set of returning themes like obsession, narcissism, social alienation, anti-consumerism and chaos, with an extremely consistent directing approach and distinctive visual aesthetic, Fincher brought us such influential pop cultural milestones like Fight Club, The Social Network and Zodiac.
Please note that due to the materials available to us, we won’t be able to screen Se7en at this time. We kindly advise you to visit our friends of KINO Rotterdam, who will be screening it as a special 35mm presentation: https://tinyurl.com/se7enkino.
