It’s hard to defend a film that even David Fincher walked away from. A film he’s since disowned due to the tremendous amount of shit he had to deal with. He began shooting the film with an unfinished script, the film was over budget, and the executives overruled nearly every decision he made. It was such an awful experience; Fincher went back to making music videos, most notably for Michael Jackson, Madonna, and The Rolling Stones, before returning in 1995 to direct Se7en. Hell I’m surprised he even returned to 20th Century Fox with Fight Club after the way he was treated. But with that being said, Alien³ wasn’t that bad.
Notes: I’m only focusing on the 1992 Theatrical release, not the 2003 Special Edition aka “Assembly Cut”. ALSO, fair warning upfront, there will be spoilers abound.

The film that really put David Fincher’s name on the map was Se7en, which as well as being my favorite of his films is also a regular feature amongst my top 10 films of all time. It’s an immensely layered and incredibly detailed thriller, and here are my 5 favorite things about it.
