Personal Quote:

I am a contrarian by nature, so all it does is make me want to take real risks. I am like, 'If we are not out on the ledge juggling chain saws, then we are doing ourselves a huge disservice.' See more »

Trivia:

David Fincher's involvement with cinematographers Harris Savides (Zodiac) and Jeff Cronenweth (Fight Club, The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Gone Girl) predates Fincher's work as a feature-film director. Both cinematographers had worked for Fincher early in his music video directing career. See more »
