And that safety film would still be more original and innovative than any other movie from 2010…
A very young David Fincher. Nineteen to be exact.
He is on the set of some movie that I can’t remember the name of, and I’m not exactly sure of his job at the time.
D’aww. I’m more inclined to hit it now, but d’aww nonetheless.
He could definitely get it.
WHY SAVANNAH? WHY DID YOU BRING THIS INTO MY LIFE?
Ok, fine, I’ll admit it: I have a big old crush on David Fincher, despite the fact that there’s a tiny possibility we’re related.
David: Uh, you need a ridiculous hat.
Andrew: What do you mean ridiculous? [awkward pause, Jesse starts laughing and continues throughout] I look good in this shot, don’t I?
David: No, I- I…
Andrew: You’re making me look cool, right?
Andrew: How’s that look?
David: I think it’s truly terrible.
Andrew: In a fantastic way?
The Social Network, behind the scenes
My first thought was, ‘It’s a bit slight.’ But there’s kind of a riptide to Sorkin’s glibness. A lot of what he says is the sparkle on the surface, but there’s a poignant discomfort underneath. He’s such a verbal savage, but at first I did think, ‘It’s too fast and there’s something slight about it.’ Then I walked away, and an hour later I thought, ‘No, it’s OK, it really resonates, it leaves you with the right kind of hollow.’ It’s like sushi: you might be hungry again in a bit, but you ate something pretty spectacular….
My responsibility is to unsettle people. There are hundreds of movies a year lobbying to be man’s best friend. And I don’t feel I need to add to that. I like popcorn movies but, as part of a healthy balance, one of the other food groups could be semi-challenging adult-ish fare.
