Many film snobs say that the golden age of “The Big Director” is over. Everyone is complaining about all the remakes, all the sequels, and all the cookie-cutter movies being made today. However, there are still directors (both contemporary and from the past) that are still widely known. Bring their name up in conversation, and 99 times out of 100, people will know who you’re talking about.
Naturally, it’s not the first time this has been said about one of his movies, so we should probably break down the arguments we can find all over the internet and see if it’ll hold up or not.
