Regarding David Fincher’s new film, “The Assassin”, available on Netflix, the Magazine.HD team got together to choose the director’s best films. From “Se7en” to “The Game”, these are our choices!

One of the best directors of all time, David Fincher, returned to limelight after the premiere of “The Killer“, at Netflix. Despite being one of the most anticipated films of the year, “The Killer” has won over critics but not the public. In the review aggregator Rotten TomatoesO new movie by David Fincher achieved an 85% rating among specialized critics while among the public it “only” reached 60%.

Within the specialty, Craig Mathiesonfrom Australia’s The Age, comments on the director’s genius, “David Fincher strikes a delicious balance with this neo-noir thriller about a methodical killer: it’s one of his lightest but most enjoyable feature films.”

However, for the public, the film fell short of what David Fincher has accustomed us to. For example, in one of the several criticism from internet users present on Rottern Tomatoes, “David Fincher intended to create a minimalist and dramatic thriller, but he failed to achieve his goal. The story is too repetitive and lacks interest. Furthermore, the revenge plot in “The Killer” feels old and mundane.” Despite being far from some of his best films, “The Killer” is an interesting film for those in the mood, with an excellent performance by Michael Fassbender.

But before seeing “The Killer”, we should remember some of David Fincher’s best films. That’s why the Magazin.HD team chose the best films by the iconic director that you can’t miss!

10) THE GAME (1997)

This film starring michael douglas, Sean Penn and Deborah Kara Unger is considered by many to be one of David Fincher’s best films and could not be missing from this list.

According to the official synopsis, “on his birthday, millionaire Nicholas Van Orton (Michael Douglas), a methodical man who maintains absolute control over his professional and personal life, receives from his brother Conrad (Sean Penn), an irresponsible play -boy, an unusual gift: a game. A game created by a company with the aim of livening up the player’s life. Orton agrees, out of mere curiosity, to go to an interview at the game company that begins at this precise moment. From one minute to the next, Ortgon’s life turns into a nightmare of persecutions and attacks on his life, which he believes is a Machiavellian scheme to ruin him.”

For Kevine Maher, from TEAMS (UK), the film “is stunning, with all the dark scenes seemingly dipped in paint and some quick editing balanced by more experimental touches.”

9) MANK (2020)

With Gary Oldman any director is closer to success. The British actor plays Herman J. Mankiewicz, responsible for the script for one of the best films in cinema history, “Citizen Kane”. However, Orson Wells did not recognize the screenwriter as the true author. “Mank” portrays Herman J. Mankiewicz’s arduous battle for due credit for the screenplay of the great film.

For Manuel São Bento, a former Magazine.HD critic, says “with the perfectionist and dedicated David Fincher at the helm, his late father’s screenplay ends up being the filmmaker’s most personal project to date. A wonderful tribute not only to Citizen Kane, but also to the 30s/40s.”

8) PANIC ROOM (2002)

Despite being one of the films with the worst rating on Rotten Tomatoes – 76% for specialized critics and 64% for the public, “Panic Room” brings together everything to be an excellent film. With a luxury cast – Jodie Foster, Forest Whitaker, Jared Leto It is Kristen Stewart, the film tells the story of a mother who is in a constant game of cat and mouse inside her own home with the thieves who forced entry. A dramatic story, which thanks to the mastery of David Fincher, became an incredible film in which with just a few scenarios we were able to stay hooked to the screen from start to finish.


Such an unusual story that captured everyone’s attention. Starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, “The Strange Case of Benjamin Button”. A film that portrays loss in a different but impactful way – “grief is inevitable; As we grow older, we will inevitably attend more funerals than birthday parties, and the reward of a long life is seeing everything but our self swept away by time and tide. But maybe love is also inevitable, he said Travis Johnson by Flick.


From Nordic genius Stieg Larsson, David Fincher adapted the first book in the Millennium saga – “Men Who Hate Women”. Starring Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara, Christopher Plummer and Stellan Skarsgard, we follow a journalist capable of anything to uncover the truth in one of Sweden’s most powerful families. The film contains some graphic moments but the harshness of the scenes elevates one of David Fincher’s best films. The other adaptations were missing.


Who doesn’t know Facebook? David Fincher made one of the best biographical films ever. “The Social Network” has a luxurious cast – Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, Armie Hammer, among others. According to the official synopsis, “in 2003, Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg), a Harvard student and computer genius, begins working on a new concept that ends up becoming the global social network known as Facebook. Six years later, he is one of the youngest billionaires ever, but Zuckerberg discovers that his unprecedented success brings him personal and legal complications when he ends up being the target of two lawsuits, one of them involving his former friend (Andrew Garfield). .

4) FIGHTCLUB (1999)

The first rule of “Fight Club”, there is no talk about “Fight Club”.

3) ZODIAC (2007)

A film that generates a mix of opinions but that portrays the murders of one of the most popular serial killers of all time. “Zodiac” follows a cartoonist obsessed with the Zodiac Killer, who spread terror in the 60s and 70s in San Francisco. As is usual in David Fincher’s films, the film has a luxury cast – Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, among others.

two) GONE GIRL (2014)

The extreme of a toxic relationship. Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike star, they form an unusual couple in which the word “well-being” is not included in the dictionary. Manuel São Bento, a renowned Portuguese critic, says “further proof of David Fincher’s visual mastery. With perfect editing, a memorable soundtrack and fantastic camera work, Gone Girl is technically magnificent, but it’s Gillian Flynn’s debut screenplay that steals the spotlight.”

1) SE7EN (1995)

“What’s in the box?!” A phrase that remained in the history of cinema and a film that should be on every list of the best films of the seventh art. Starring Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt and Kevin Spacey, “Se7en”, or in Portuguese, “Seven” follows a killer who acts according to the seven deadly sins – pride, wrath, envy, gluttony, greed, lust and laziness.
