"I heard him [Fincher] once describe directing. It was the greatest description of directing I ever heard. He sort of said “Imagine painting… but you’re 200 yards away from the canvas. And 80 people are holding the brush. And you’re on a walkie-talkie going, ‘We need a little blue there. No, no, no, darker blue. No, DARKER BLUE.’”"
