Hello Wizard: Fincher Tribute

I'm not going to lie there are three very different classes of unlucky fincherfanatics at this time: The ones who cannot watch "Gone Girl" at all, the ones who still have to wait for their premiere -- and poor bastards like me who have already seen it twice but cannot wait to see it again.

Life's unfair, innit?

For all of the above, here's a little fix for the cravings: Hello Wizard has created a fantastic tableau of the cinematic greatness of more than two Fincher decades. Enjoy!

  1. My very shitty iphone-in-the-fron-pocket-of-my-shirt recording from the Fincher Q&A I went to. Can't stress enough how bad the quality is, but you can make out most of the conversation. Hope you enjoy it if you give it a listen. https://soundcloud.com/torrance-klimoski/fincher

  6. I've seen the movie. PHENOMENAL!!!!!!!!! I'm pretty much speechless right now, it's exactly like the book, it's better than the book. The acting is amazing. And I won't even get into the technical aspects... pure perfection, every frame. Wow.

    1. Haha, oh, good to hear you finally encountered that head-twister of a movie. Now what do you think of Gillian Flynn tackling "Utopia"? It will be brutal...

    not sure why "Billie Jean" blasts throughout, and what's with the "Thanks, Dave!"... but CLICK ON THE LINK, fans, CLICK nonetheless.
