DP Jeff Cronenweth on the Difference Between Shooting 'Gone Girl' and 'Fight Club'

Publish date:

David Fincher's frequent cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth talks to ICG Magazine about his work on Gone Girl, including the differences between lensing that and the first Fincher film he shot, Fight Club.

He says, "In Fight Club you often can’t see the eyes on the main two guys. In addition to being unnerving, it was valuable in showing how shallow these guys were. Then, when we chose to bring the eyes out, it worked well in showing them as two facets of the same person. On this film, the intensity of the relationships between these people and the mystery surrounding it all was such that you really had to be able to see their eyes to have some idea of how this psychological chess game between this very dysfunctional couple played out.”
