In Fincher's opinion the decision makers at the big studios are not just about making a quick buck. Even though the business is about the bottom line, there's also a sense for art and immortality, and there is an awareness, that some films may not reel in the bucks on the opening weekend -- but in return they will be talked about even decades from now. And as I have seen from many comments from the Fincher followers it becomes clear that Fincher's films are the kind that grow with time and get better with every viewing.
Here's this great interview in it's full glory:
David Fincher discusses "Zodiac", L.A. Weekly
Okay and now let me post something that most of you will either hate or find extremely entertaining: I ran into this blog of a guy, who's bashing the living ship out of "Zodiac" and tries very hard to expose Fincher as a cheap copycat of Sidney Lumet. Obviously he didn't enjoy "Zodiac" all so much and hates it more with every viewing. For some reason I found his ramblings very amusing. What do you guys think?
