The Contenders: Page 6XW
Guillermo del Toro's filmography is varied and each one of his projects is exciting in their own way. Pan's Labyrinth and The Devil's Backbone prove that he is a master of mixing the fantastical with the dramatic, balancing childlike wonder with paranoia and challenging situations; they delve deep into the emotional core of mythology and fairy tales with their haunting beauty and eerie performances and on the side, they possess an incredible understanding of the tragedies often faced by real children and how they react to them.

Also, a talented screenwriter, an incredible actor and father to Anjelica Huston, he had an impressive career of over 65 years.
It truly upsets me that no one up till me even thought of Renoir. His films are not only technically masterful, but they are so full of human emotion and truth and brilliance that they transcend all film criticism. No director has ever shown humans as truthfully and honestly as Renoir.
What A Joke Renoir Is The Boss The Wisest Man to Make films, the teenagers & 20 something's who vote for populist hacks, haven't a clue about cinema.
Iñarritu is quickly paving his way into the list of great directors, especially over recent years with The Revenant and Birdman. I can't wait to see what he has in store next.V1 Comment
