David Fincher masterclass at Comme Au Cinéma, while promoting “Gone Girl” in France. | Sep. 16th, 2014

PLAYBOY sent Contributing Editor Stephen Rebello, who last interviewed Samuel L. Jackson, to catch up with Fincher in his cavernous Hollywood production offices housed in a swank 1920s art deco former bank that later served as a location in L.A. Confidential. Reports Rebello: “You meet David Fincher and know instantly you’ve been scanned, processed and judged either ‘quick’ or ‘dead.’ He doesn’t suffer fools. But instead of the cool, brusque, detached man some have described, he struck me as gracious, smart as hell, drolly funny and armed with a lethal dry wit. Tell him you like his films, for instance, and he shoots back, ‘Well, it’s always nice to meet new perverts.’ Back at you, Fincher.” Photography by Marius Bugge.
Playboy Interview: David Fincher. Yay!

Playboy Interview: David Fincher. Yay!

  • Details: How are you different as directors?
  • Fincher: He wraps a lot earlier than I do.
  • Affleck: I just go home by lunch. I gauge a day by how early I go home. No, I mean, I don't put myself really on a par with David in terms of "I'm this, he's that."
  • Details: What was your takeaway from watching David work?
  • Affleck: The biggest thing I learned from David, really, is that he has a kind of insistence on "This is what I want to do, this is how we're going to do it." Because this business has a lot of people saying no—like, "This is going to be too hard" or "This is too expensive" or "No one's going to want to see that" or "We can't have it this way." And I have tended, to my embarrassment, in the past to go, "Oh, you think? Really? We can't do that? I guess we can't do that." And David can push through by force of will what he wants. And I know that the next movie I do, it's going to be colored much more by "Well, this is what I want to do, so we're going to find a way to do it."
  • Details: You'll be an asshole the next time.
  • Affleck: Yeah, I'll be more of a prick. "He was a nice guy till he worked with Fincher."

I had this argument with a studio executive one time where he said to me, ‘why is it that the actors always side with you and we’re paying them?’ And I said, ‘I think it’s because at some level, they know that my only real allegiance is to the movie.’ David Fincher (via pablolf)

Q: I really want to know what you think the tone of the movie is.
Fincher: High seriousness in little dishes of candy.

High-production film-like ads for Gap Factory Store - THE DAILY GOOD

David Fincher, most known for directing “Fight Club” and “The Social Network”, produced a series of black and white ads for Gap. The use of monochrome colors give the ads a feeling of intrigue punctuated with sensuality. The high-production film-like quality makes you almost forget that you are watching a commercial if it wasn’t for that small indication near the end referencing the axis of the message. A feeling that it’s normal to get since the clips were filmed like a real movie as David Fincher made the actor run up the stairs 50 or 60 times in the clip below.

With New York Fashion Week and the TIFF (Toronto Film Festival) happening next week, it’s seems all too fitting that the ads are being released now. Both events are starting September 4th and you can expect to see those clips broadcasted more than once.
