Babies, you know I love an homage. Hats off to David Fincher. . . Share this:TwitterFacebookPinterestLike this:Like Loading...
As someone I know would say: Coolio! I think Mr Fincher has missed his calling, or at least I’d like to see him direct a film with that kind of tone for a change. 🙂
A musical, or something in black and white with an art deco patina?
Well my goodness, Ms. V, you got me to do something that I never thought would happen–Holy Cow I just watched a Justin Timberlake video! All the way through! But geeze Louise was it beautifully filmed. That Mr. Fincher may not be the most likeable person on the planet if you listen to gossip (ah-hem) but dude is one hell of a director!
What’s really fun is to run them simultaneously! Dude, contrary to gossip, is smart, funny, insightful, and receptive to good creative input… and one hell of a director!
See? Good thing that I don’t listen to gossip. 🙂
He really is one of our most talented contemporary directors. His movies will last and last…
Both, Vickie! But really I mean the *tone*, I want to see him turn his undoubted skills to something *different*! Maybe he doesn’t want to in motion pictures but I’d like to see him extend his range beyond even Benjamin Button. Yeah baby!
Oh dear. The Dandy really can’t see the connection beyond a few art deco styled sets and the black and white, but then I’m not overly versed in movie grammar.
For me Mr Berkeley has always been all about the swell of the crowd and the ‘how did they do that’ of the choreography whereas Mr Fincher’s look seems sparse, burlesque noir.
I should imagine I’m missing something… it often happens in the heat!

I see it as an evolution in rhythm and geometry and the use of black and white – really, do try running them simultaneously (muted) it’s fascinating.
Will do… one spends one’s head in books pushing three hundred years old and mainly accompanied by the radio.
Sometimes moving images come as something of a surprise.

Most intriguing! Books “pushing three hundred year old” — the age of enlightenment?
