Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on losing his father, Jack Fincher] I remember the experience of being there when he breathed his last breath. It was incredibly profound. When you lose someone who helped form you in lots of ways, who is your 'true north', you lose the barometer of your life. You're no longer trying to please someone, or you're no longer reacting against something. In many ways, you're truly alone. See more »

Trivia:

In 2005, he directed the video for Nine Inch Nails' "Only". Ten years earlier, he used Coil's version of the Nine Inch Nails' song "Closer" during the opening credits montage of his film Se7en (1995). See more »

Trademark:

His movies often end with villains either 'winning' or not receiving proper punishment. E.g. Se7en (1995), Fight Club (1999), Zodiac (2007) and Gone Girl (2014). See more »
