I’ve recently come to a decision concerning movies. From this moment forth, I will see all theatrical releases by directors Quentin Tarantino, Peter Jackson, the Wachowskis, and Guillermo del Toro.
With two small children, a full time teaching job, a serious writing interest, and graduate studies, my time is limited. And though I often wanted to see movies by these directors in the past, I usually waited for the DVD. However, I’ve recently watched Django Unchained, The Hobbit, and Cloud Atlas, and loved all three for very different reasons. What they all convinced me of, however, is that these directors each speak to me in such a way that I know they will never disappoint. I celebrate their craft, their vision, their sensibilities, and their decisions.
By missing out on the three aforementioned films, I refused to wait for del Toro’s Pacific Rim. I think I may have been the last to see it, but I made it to the theater for that one, and I’m glad I did!
Do you have any “must see in the theater” directors? Please do share!
