What Got This Director Here?: Cumulative. Mostly Before trilogy, though.
My Favorite Past Experience Was…: Before Sunset or Boyhood.
What Did I Watch: Dazed and Confused. (This is really a long overdue rewatch.)
Where Does He Fit: Something happened to the original post for this one and Tim Burton’s, so all I’ll say is that this is beautifully contrived rather than free wheeling and yet it fools you into thinking it is the latter. Something universal in this thanks to the brilliant ensemble, and it really feels generational despite being old fashioned.
Most Valuable Asset: Real conversation is phony.
Most Excited For: Whatever’s coming next.
Did They Deserve a Spot?: Yes.
Coming Up Next: Quirky former talent Tim Burton.
