I'm not sure my monitor can display colors that dark.

Very nice article Frank, thanks.

I find it interesting that they only used Fincher's digital films - I'm all for shooting digital, but his 35mm films looked quite a bit different...and better. I love his reverse key lighting style, though, although my cinematography teacher in film school was a real classically trained DOP and couldn't stand Fincher's use of darkness and green and blues. I love it.

My favourite quote of Fincher's is that a movie shouldn't just be a viewing experience, but should "scar the viewer".
