I like working with you.
“I’ve had many enemies over the years. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s never engage in a fight you’re sure to lose. On the other hand, never let anyone who has insulted you get away with it. Bide your time and strike back when you’re in a position of strength—even if you no longer need to strike back.”
We wanted to shoot the scene where she’s plotting her revenge of Bjurman and I wanted the idea that her world literally gets turned upside down. And I like the idea of taking a techno dolly and just flying over the top of her head and seeing her face as you see her eyes darting around as she is lost in vindictive fantasy. - David Fincher (TGWTDT audio commentary)
There’s a wonderful Rooney moment coming up where she tells him that she understands exactly what is asked of her and she’s already committed it all to memory. And I love the way she just points at her head for a second like, “I got that.” And then when he insists that she take these papers, instead of resisting him anymore, she just takes them and then drops them on the nearest chair. [laughs] She did that to me, like, once or twice a day. -David Fincher (TGWTDT audio commentary)
