The final image of

David Fincher on why he wanted to make The Curious Case of Benjamin Button:

"I just thought the final image of a 74-year-old woman holding a seven-month-old baby and helping him through death, I just thought it was a beautiful way to end a love story."

Of course, this website has already registered its agreement. Other great lines from a fascinating and often very funny interview.

On Alien 3: "No one hated it more than me; to this day, no one hates it more than me." (Not even Vincent Ward?).

On Fight Club: "We opened at the Venice film festival, and I think to say that they hated it would be an understatement. Let's put it this way: the youngest person in the screening was Giorgio Armani."
