When it comes to art, there’s always scrutiny. Sometimes, you think something is a piece of crap and you don’t expect much, then bam, it’s hailed as your best work. There is nowhere more evident that in the film industry. There’s a few examples of filmmakers coming forward with their debut feature and it turns out to be the best.
Then they spend the rest of their careers trying to replicate that lighting in a bottle, but only come close. These directors/films here are examples of that. While the rest of their catalogue isn’t bad by any means, these first films just work.
Lemme know what you think.
