David Fincher

Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)

Rated PG-13

David Fincher directs this Oscar-nominated tale of Benjamin Button — a man who was born old and wrinkled but grows younger as the years go by — with a screenplay adapted from a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The plot throws linear conventions upside down to explore love, loss and memory from the perspective of a character living under incredibly unique — and unexpectedly difficult — circumstances.

Fight Club (1999)

Rated R

An insomniac corporate drone meets roguish rebel Tyler Durden, and together they form a cathartic but brutal underground society in which men fight each other freely in director David Fincher’s sharp Oscar-nominated flick. But the line between reality and sleepless haze begins to blur when propagandist Durden transforms Fight Club from a group of non-conformists into a nihilistic cult.

Seven (1995)

Rated R

Two homicide detectives are on a desperate hunt for a serial killer whose crimes are based on the “seven deadly sins” in this dark and haunting film that takes viewers from the tortured remains of one victim to the next. The seasoned Det. Sommerset researches each sin in an effort to get inside the killer’s mind, while his novice partner, Mills, scoffs at his efforts to unravel the case.

Zodiac (2007)

Rated R

David Fincher’s chilling drama based on actual events in the 1960s and ’70s recounts the infamous actions of a cryptic killer who stalked the streets of San Francisco in an executioner’s hood and left clues about his crimes in the newspaper. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as the reporter who went on to write a best-selling true-crime book.
