    Fincher made his name with dark and stylized thrillers such as “Seven and Fight Club”. His feature debut was Alien 3 (1992), which did not go smoothly. The production company did not allow Fincher to have complete control over the film, and the end product did not turn out as he expected. The experience was enough to convince him to go back to directing music videos and commercials for the next few years. He agreed to give another feature film a chance, and this time he had complete control over the entire process. The result was in 1995 “Seven”, which had an edgy style unlike anything else seen before and was a hit among a certain demographic. His next film “Fight Club” was even more controversial than “Seven”. Critics and audience simply didn’t understand it at first, and as a result, it suffered bad reviews and poor box office turnout. It later becomes a cult hit on DVD/VHS and since then many critics have changed their mind. He has also made “Panic Room”, in 2002, in 2007 he then made “Zodiac”, in 2008, “The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, 2010, “The Social Network”,2012 he then directed “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” and recently in 2014 “Gone Girl”.

    Zodiac (2007) is a American Neo-noir mystery-thriller based on the real events of the Zodiac case. It is an excellent mixture of nerve-racking suspense and desperately obsessed police procedural work. Director David Fincher is famous for his interest in experimenting and exaggerating with mystery and anticipation in his films, and Zodiac successfully keeps viewers on the edge with its elusive and uncertain narrative. However, the plot of the film is not about the actual killer, but more of the…
