The year was 1995 when a little-known director, whose first movie Alien 3(1992) was derided in tinsel town, helmed an unconventional and gritty thriller about two detectives chasing down a serial killer hit the screens. This was the beginning of the glittering career of David Fincher, a maverick of a movie maker whose meticulous process of film making earned him a genius's status in Hollywood.
Born as David Andrew Leo Fincher, the Denver native had an early fascination towards movies and started filming with an 8 mm camera at the age of 8. Fincher was fascinated by George Lucas's work and held the latter in high regards. (Inspirational quotes)
