Item description for Dark Eye: The films of David Fincher by James Swallow...
David Fincher is young, talented, and something of an outsider, with a dark cinematic vision from the serial-killer drama Seven to the urban gothic thriller Panic Room. In Dark Eye, written with Fincher's full involvement and featuring in-depth interviews, journalist James Swallow presents a complete survey of the director's work. He begins with Fincher's early career at special-effects house Industrial Light & Magic, where he worked on films like Return of the Jedi and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. He then looks at each of the director's major films, including his most recent release, Zodiac. Rounding out the book is a reference section and website listing.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dark Eye: The films of David Fincher?
at last a recognition for Mr Fincher Aug 31, 2003
For any Fincher admirer, this book is a must have. Not because you'll learn anything you should already know about the man and his movies, but because it will give you an interesting point of view of Mr Fincher's creative process.
James Swallow should be thanked for arguing about the greatest "malentendu" regarding Mr Fincher : no, he's not just another MTV director.
Just reading about his uncompromising choices should convince you (could you ever imagine a hollywood movie with no happy ending? do you ever dream about what "the avengers" could have been in black & white cinemascope? could you, as a relatively unknown director, sell a movie about nihilists?...)
Finally, as a bonus, the book is as sharply edited as Mr Fincher movies.
