Fincher's Flicks: Ranking The Films Of David Fincher

David Fincher has been one of Hollywood's most distinguished and best directors for over the last 20 years.  He's one of the best filmmakers to come from the 90s.  When you see just a hint of a scene from a movie, the guy has a distinct enough touch and flavor that you just KNOW its from one of his movies.  I've really been a big fan and love a large portion of his catalog.  Starting with Seven, the guy was kicking down doors and changing filmmaking with a loud voice.  His work is indeed inspiring other directors, studio and up and coming filmmakers.  A David Fincher film is always one you're setting time aside to see regardless of initial expectation.  You trust the guy at the helm will do something worthwhile.
