In order to convince the studio that Rooney Mara had what it took to portray the strung out Lisbeth Salander, David Fincher asked her to go out and get really drunk. He then had her come in the next morning after a night of vomiting, and took pictures of her in her hungover state. This also convinced the studio to cast her.

“In my opinion, the true poetry of this movie, if it has any, lies not in the absurd situations themselves, but in their juxtaposition with obscenity and tragedy.''
-Jiri Menzel, on his film Closely Watched Trains
🎥(M. Night Shyamalan, à propos du casting du très jeune Haley Joel Osment, pour le rôle culte du petit Cole dans 'Sixième sens').
🇺🇲🗨️"There was something magical about his audition.
When I left the room, I said to the casting director, "I don't know if I want to make the movie if it's not with this kid." Especially after the actor uttered the emblematic phrase from the film: "I see dead people."
He was a really sweet cherub, a kind of handsome blond boy. I saw this part as I saw this dark, enigmatic child.
But he has sorted out vulnerability and need - I guess that's the best way to describe it. He was able to transmit a need as a human being in a way that was incredible to see. He did so throughout the process."
🇫🇷🗨️"Il y avait quelque chose de magique dans son audition.
Quand j'ai quitté la pièce, j'ai dit au directeur du casting : "Je ne sais pas si je veux faire le film si ce n'est pas avec ce gamin." Surtout après que l'acteur ait prononcé la phrase emblématique du film : "Je vois des morts."
C'était un chérubin vraiment doux, une sorte de beau garçon blond. Je voyais cette partie comme je voyais cet enfant sombre, énigmatique.
Mais il a fait le tri entre la vulnérabilité et le besoin - je suppose que c'est la meilleure façon de le décrire. Il a été capable de transmettre un besoin en tant qu'être humain d'une manière qui était incroyable à voir. Il l'a fait tout au long du processus."

🎥 #MovieReview: day one of my 1,000 Followers Celebration saw me revisit the film I rank as my third favourite of all time - #Zodiac!
Format: #Bluray 💿
Synopsis: In the late 1960s/early 1970s, a San Francisco cartoonist becomes an amateur detective obsessed with tracking down the Zodiac Killer, an unidentified individual who terrorizes Northern California with a killing spree.
For me, this is Fincher's best work. I've seen the film over a dozen times now and it continues to amaze. It's so unconventional for a movie about a killer: pacing is steady and deliberate, the focus is on the investigators, more interest is shown in the process and there are no jump scares to be seen.
The writing and attention to detail is superb, with actual murder locations being used. Characters are extremely well drawn. I also love the various techniques used to make Zodiac's attributes variable from scene to scene.
Performances are exceptional. As a matter of fact, I view the four main actors' performances to be their best. This is particularly true of Ruffalo, whose performance is one of my favourites of all time and it cemented me as a major fan well before the Hulk hype train.
If you haven't - please see the film.
Have you seen this film? 👀 💭 Post your thoughts below!
Filmed digitally, Zodiac looks excellent. CGI is used seamlessly to create a period specific look. The occasional blown highlight and some odd frozen grain patterns in a handful of scenes keep it from a perfect score.
Although somewhat basic, it's a high quality. The film is dialogue heavy, and each word is rendered perfectly in the mix. Atmospheric sounds are used to amazing effect, such as the basement scene later in the film. Lastly, music is used to communicate the passage of time and it's used masterfully.
