Podcast: Top 3 David Fincher Scenes

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we reviewed David Fincher’s latest film, Gone Girl, which peaked our interest in other Fincher films. Fincher is, for most people, one of the best filmmakers working today and has one heck of a filmography, including Se7en, Fight Club, Zodiac, The Social Network & several other great films. Not only does he have an impressive resume but each film has more than three scenes worthy of making a list like this, making this week’s Top 3 really difficult. However, we came up with some great lists and had some really great conversation.

That being said, what David Fincher scenes would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours (Keep in mind we all have different criteria for our lists as well):


1) Se7en – What’s in the box?
2) The Social Network – Courtroom meetings
3) The Game – Rooftop/Ending


1) Se7en – What’s in the box?
2) Fight Club – Chemical burn
3) The Game – The Game begins (with doll)


1) The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – Taxi car accident
2) The Social Network – Beginning break-up
3) Fight Club – Beats himself up

Honorable Mentions (Combined)

Gone Girl – “Sex Scene”, Zodiac – Lakeside murder, Se7en – Slot scene, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – Revenge scene, Zodiac – Basement scene, Zodiac – Killer calling News outlet, Panic Room – Jodie Foster ending, Fight Club – First rule
