As his latest film Gone Girl heads into theaters with select evening shows tonight before hitting theaters everywhere tomorrow, why not take a deeper look at the filmmaking style and and craft of a gifted director like Fincher. The man behind films like Se7en and The Social Network describes his process as "not what I do, but what I don’t do," and Every Frame a Painting has decided to dive into what makes Fincher's films tick with a fascinating and fantastic seven-minute video essay. Watch now!

Here's the video essay David Fincher - And the Other Way is Wrong (via The Playlist):

Gone Girl is directed by David Fincher (of Seven, The Game, Fight Club, Zodiac, Panic Room, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo previously) and written by Gillian Flynn, based on her own best-selling novel of the same name. In a story primarily told in flashbacks, Rosamund Pike plays a wife who goes missing on her fifth wedding anniversary, and her husband (Ben Affleck) becomes the prime suspect in her disappearance. Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Scoot McNairy and Missi Pyle also star in the film which 20th Century Fox releases everywhere this fall on October 3rd.

This was very cool. I think, as good as he is, Fincher's still underrated.
