Let's put it this way : this is probably the most extensive profile on Fincher ever published. Where Fincher himself comments on his career, as well as the professionals he worked with.
Call him a "sociopath" (as he described himself not so long ago during a NY premiere), anti-authoritarian, whatever you wish. You'll just be reading about a guy who just shot the poster of his upcoming movie featuring a naked Rooney Mara. Bold move, unlikely to be featured in your local movie theater, but will surely generate good publicity.
You're in charge, but you're not in control (...). Anybody who thinks they are in control is nuts.
As for the movie industry, he's eventually the man who grossed $1.53B worldwide. And that may justify/excuse the don't-mess-with-me person he's supposed to be.
