Happy Birthday David Fincher!

My first movie [Alien 3], it’s fairly well known, was a disaster. I stupidly felt that the people who were financing it had more to lose than I did if it was bad. I allowed myself to be steered into this communal making and then when the shit hits the fan, all of a sudden, everybody scatters and you’re the guy standing there saying, “wait, who’s got a suggestion now?” So if I’m going to take the blame, if I’m going to take the brunt of it, I’m going to make the decisions.
3. David Fincher.

When I’m watching somebody act, it’s a behavior editorial function - I look at someone act, and I might say, ‘I don’t believe him when he says that.’ I don’t know why I don’t believe him, probably because the people that I’ve met, they don’t act like that when they say stuff like that and mean it.
