The increasing mastery of David Fincher from one film to the next has provided one of the most heartening spectacles in modern American cinema. Film by film, Fincher has built a unique body of work, in which technical expertise is combined with peerless storytelling, a jeweler’s eye for detail, and a special gift for giving form to the mysteries of time’s passing. The New Year begins under the sign of Fincher, with three of his key films, screening back to back with three films chosen by Fincher, that were essential to his creative development.
On Sunday, January 4 at 3pm come to the Walter Reade Theater for a screening of his brilliant new adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short story The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. And at 7:30pm on Sunday evening, the filmmaker will appear in conversation with Kent Jones at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall to discuss his work, with a special emphasis on the technical processes behind the creation of Benjamin Button.
