"I don't know how much movies should entertain. To me, I'm always interested in movies that scar. The thing I love about Jaws is the fact that I've never gone swimming in the ocean again."

David Andrew Leo Fincher (born August 28, 1962) is an American filmmaker who's highly acclaimed for his gritty, stylish films.

After a brief stint working at Industrial Light and Magic on a few films, he started out directing commercials and music videos, most notably "Vogue" by Madonna. His movies tend to be very dark, both visually and thematically, and to evoke sensations of paranoia and claustrophobia. He is best known for Se7en, Fight Club, The Social Network and Gone Girl. He was also a producer on the Netflix anthology Love, Death & Robots.
