What Got This Director Here?: Mostly his two Ed movies.
My Favorite Past Experience Was…: Ed Wood.
What Did I Watch: Beetlejuice, which was also a rewatch since I was not watching his bad stuff.
Where Does He Fit: This post and the Linklater one got broken, so all I’ll say is that this film is strange and unusual in a way that is fun and works in a fun way. Definitely the best Hollywood mall movie we’d gotten in a while, I think? Also, yay for Sylvia Sidney finding second life as a mean old grinch!
Most Valuable Asset: It used to be dark quirk before it got to be Too Much.
Most Excited For: Seen all the good stuff except Mars Attacks, which I felt the need to save up.
Did They Deserve a Spot?: Eh.
Coming Up Next: Djibril Diop Mambety, one of two breakthrough African directors.
