Quoting the Director

September 20, 1997

In Patrick Goldstein's recent article on "The Game" director David Fincher, he writes that the "media-shy" Fincher "scoffs at the media's celebrity worship of film directors" and quotes Fincher thus, "I'm not interested in reading about directors. . . . I think the last time I cared what a film director had to say was when I was a kid, reading what Steven Spielberg said in Time magazine about 'Jaws.' "

Yet later in the piece, Goldstein writes that Fincher "often quotes from James Cameron and Alfred Hitchcock." While it's possible that he may have conversed with Cameron during his involvement with the execrable "Alien3," at Fox, it seems that a man his age could only quote Hitchcock from having read about him.
