David Fincher’s Most Iconic Music Videos


Director David Fincher is nabbing all sorts of acclaim for his new film “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” –the Daniel Craig-Rooney Mara starrer enjoys an 94 percent “fresh” rating on movie review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.

The “Social Network” Oscar contender has established an awesome filmography in the last 15 years, including box office hits like “Se7en,” cult faves like “Fight Club” and award-nominated behemoths like “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” But for those who don’t know, he got his start directing music videos for artists like Madonna, Paula Abdul, the Rolling Stones, Iggy Pop and Aerosmith. Some of the clips he turned out in the late-80s and early-90s, in particular, have become iconic and genre-defining.

Below are, in our estimation, Fincher’s five most iconic videos.

PSYCH! We had to go with six … Madonna threw a wrench into things.

Madonna, TIE: “Vogue” and “Express Yourself”
Fincher’s relationship with the Queen of Pop ran deep. He directed four of Madonna’s most well-known clips, including two of her most influential and, arguably, best – “Vogue” and “Express Yourself.” It was so hard to pick between the two that we ultimately had to celebrate both. Inspired by Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis,” the video for “Express Yourself” was, at the time it was filmed, the most expensive music video ever, while the black-and-white clip for “Vogue” was inspired by old Hollywood glamour and was one of Madonna’s biggest hits ever (which is a STATEMENT).
