  1. Wouldn't be surprised at all if Fincher wasn't inspired by Falconetti's look in Dreyer's classic.

  2. Hi SteveW:I think that's very much what occurred. I've read that Fincher's opening gambit to Weaver (on their first meeting) was a request for her to shave her head.The great thing is that the Joan of Arc context really works well in terms of the religious backdrop and other thematic elements of Alien 3, a movie I absolutely love, despite its bad reputation.Great comment!best,John
