Panic Room

We've made it to the middle of the Fincher-Fest, movie lovers! This week, join us as we talk about his one-location movie, "Panic Room." Falling right between "Fight Club" and "Zodiac", this movie really marks a turning point for David Fincher's films -- starting here, he moves into the land of digital cinema (mostly) and finds a more controlled approach to his storytelling. Join us as we talk about the trials and tribulations that went into getting this film made -- an impending writers' strike, last minute actress and supporting actress replacements, a seemingly simple script that redefined complexity of camerawork on the set, and a six-month production schedule that had to work around not only Jodie Foster's pregnancy going from 1st to 3rd term, but also Kristin Stewart -- then not so famous for being Bella in "Twilight" -- growing from being shorter than Jodie Foster to being taller than her. This in a film that takes place over the course of one night for the most part. It's a tense, claustrophobic, well-paced thrill ride that's worth taking, and we have a blast talking about it. Listen in!
