From ‘Zodiac’ to ‘Mindhunter’: 5 Visual Elements that Define David Fincher’s Cinematic Universe

1 hour ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

David Fincher is one of the most distinctive visual storytellers working today. On his new Netflix’s show “Mindhunter,” the director’s well-established visual style and use of film language is carried throughout the entire Season 1 arc, despite Fincher having only directed four of the ten episodes himself. IndieWire recently talked the show’s principal cinematographer Erik Messerschmidt – who was once Fincher’s gaffer, and shot 90% of “Mindhunter” – about what defines the cinematic style of the great auteur and how he built off the look of “Zodiac” to create something we aren’t use to seeing on TV.

The Color Palette

The imagery in a Fincher film is grounded in realism, but it’s a dark, stylized realism. This is most notable in the director’s use of colors. “[David] has an aversion to saturated colors and magenta,” said Messerschmidt in an interview. “The show has a desaturated green-yellow look, for sure, »

Netflix’s ‘Ozark’ Was Most Popular Streaming Show This Summer, According to New Audience Metric

18 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A few months ago, a Netflix exec mused to IndieWire that he was actually surprised that the streaming service’s viewership data hadn’t leaked out. Plenty of Netflix insiders know exactly who’s watching what, and when.

Yet, the streaming giant has managed to keep its ratings under lock and key. Accurate data remains a mystery to even top-level Hollywood execs outside of the Netflix bubble.

That’s starting to change, as more services chip away at the facade of Netflix ratings. Parrot Analytics has made headlines recently with its proprietary “Demand Expressions” metric, which looks at a variety of factors in determining a digital program’s popularity. And according to a new study revealed exclusively to IndieWire, the Jason Bateman drama “Ozark” led the pack among all streaming shows over the past 90 days.

David Fincher Talks the Current Limitations of Studio Movies and Marvel

21 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Whether you love his films or not, it’s hard to deny that David Fincher is incredibly smart. If you listen to any of his audio commentaries, you’re keenly aware that this is a guy who has thought long and hard about every single shot and decision, and has reasoning behind every little choice. He’s also the guy who helped make “the Facebook movie” into a defining film about the early 21st century. So when Fincher talks about the current cinematic landscape, folks listen up.

‘Lady Dynamite’ Season 2 Trailer Aims to Tell Maria Bamford’s Life Story in ‘Binge-able F—ing Installments’

23 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The official trailer for Season 2 of Netflix’s “Lady Dynamite” shows us that no matter how illusory Maria Bamford’s comedy appears, this series is also achingly real.

Following the release of her hour-long Netflix special, “Old Baby,” it’s clear that Bamford isn’t slowing down anytime soon as the star continues to tackle the stigma of mental illness — in an unconventional way, of course. Season 2 continues the story of how Maria (Bamford) struggled with mental illness while also struggling with the reality of being a working actor in Hollywood. Guest stars announced this morning include Andy Samberg, David Spade, Fred Armisen, Jason Mantzoukas, Jenny Slate, Judd Apatow, Judy Greer, and Weird Al Yankovic.

Like its first season, the show appears to continue its standard of blindingly bright, yet charming visuals to engage the audience in the story. However, we now know that the experiments are far from over, »

David Fincher Talks The Problem With Movies & The Evolution Of Cinema

23 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s not lost on anybody that studios are currently chasing blockbusters. The mid-budget, original movie — something made for $30-60 million — almost doesn’t exist anymore. Instead, executives are trying to maximize branded content, hoping to build the next cinematic universe, and aiming to create films that can reach a global market. David Fincher has certainly seen the landscape change, but instead of fighting against it, he’s embraced new opportunities as they’ve arrived.

Remarkable Video Explains ‘How David Fincher Hijacks Your Eyes’

18 October 2017 7:59 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

David Fincher, is one of the most visually arresting filmmakers working on the planet today. With films like Seven, Fight Club, Alien 3, Zodiac and the new Netflix TV series Mindhunter amongst his glowing resume, all share one particular thing, and like the creator of the following video describes, one couldn’t quite understand why his films grab your attention so much – until now.

It all seems to be down to one very simple thing, which ‘Nerdwriter1’ describes in his equally absorbing video tutorial. It’s all down to the camera moves employed in all of his films.

If you were to go back and check out any of Fincher’s work – from Gone Girl to the 2011 remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – you’ll find one thing that is the same in all of them – a simple camera move. With the use of a title, a tracking shot, »

Mindhunter season 2 to take on the Atlanta child murders

17 October 2017 7:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The story for Mindhunter season 2 is set to include the Atlanta child murders.

Mindhunter season 1 debuted this past weekend on Netflix and has garnered a pretty strong reception from critics – currently sitting at 78 on metacritic and 96 on Rotten Tomatoes.

The new series, with nearly half of its episodes directed by David Fincher, tells the partially true tale of the FBI’s first foray into the world of behavioural sciences; where two agents tour the country interviewing some of the most disturbing killers in American history.

Real life psychos that the show has so far featured include Edmund Kemper and Richard Speck.

Season 1 of the Mindhunter teased an upcoming storyline revolving around Dennis Rader ‘The Btk Killer’, but season 2 will also tacked the Atlanta child murders, revealed by Fincher to Billboard.

“Next year we’re looking at the Atlanta child murders, so we’ll have a lot more African-American music which will be nice. »

Are you watching "Mindhunter"? (Episodes 1-3)

17 October 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Nathaniel R

an FBI hostage negotiation class in "Mindhunter"'s first episode

One of the underdiscussed perks of this era of way too much to watch with thousands of cable channels, dozens of streaming services bankrolling their own content, and hundreds of movies a year is that it's easy to forget what your favorite directors are working on! Gone are the days, essentially, when you had to pine away waiting for so-and-so to return. Take the case of David Fincher. I've literally been a fan since he won "Best Direction" at the MTV Video Music Awards for Madonna's "Express Yourself" and I went to Alien³ on opening weekend so I was there at ground zero. Despite my love of all most things Fincher, it was easy to forget that he'd vanished since his excellent intensely rewatchable Gone Girl (2014) which we really should have had on our top ten list that year -- oops. »
