TGB Episode 89: Dissecting David Fincher (Guests: The Auteur Cast)

December 23, 2011

The Golden Briefcase - David Fincher

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim & Jeremy are joined by Rudie Obias and West Anthony of the excellent podcast The Auteur Cast, to discuss their Picks of the Week, the newest DVD & Blu-Ray releases, talk through new trailers for The Dark Knight Rises, Wrath of the Titans, The Hobbit and much more. The topic of the night was a discussion on the extensive filmography and career of modern day auteur David Fincher (in honor of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo arriving). The guys talk over Fincher's films, his technique and various collaborations with other talented writers, actors and composers. Listen in!

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~7:30PM PST. You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!

Great episode! My personal David Fincher film is Zodiac. Actually, Zodiac is my second all time favorite movie. It would be great if you would do more episodes about directors and their filmography. Merry Christmas!
