It’s possible that if you’ve spent any time watching the films of David Fincher, you’ve felt yourself becoming strangely uncomfortable, without knowing why. One possible explanation is offered in a new supercut – David Fincher’s Extreme Close-Ups by Jacob T. Swinney.
As the title states, David Fincher’s Extreme Close-Ups is a compendium of all the times Fincher decided the camera should be jammed up real close to the subject of the shot: A person’s face, maybe, or some other body part, or something else altogether. His frequent use of this type of shot ties into his confrontational movie-making style.
