Director Retrospectives

Director Retrospectives

In addition to my work as a teacher and a writer, I am also a big fan of cinema.  As an informal project that I have developed, I’ve created a long list of influential film directors — those whose filmographies I’m attempting to watch in their entirety and compose some brief reflections regarding.  Follow the links below to find these “Director Retrospectives” and to read my various thoughts on these artists and their works.  The list will continue to updated as I complete new directors with the most recently completed ones at the top.  Thanks, as always, for reading!
