Notable and notorious IndieWire film critic David Ehrlich recently put out a social media call for film critic peers to join a weekly survey to discuss movie topics, answer questions, and highlight their work. Representing Every Movie Has a Lesson, I, along with over 60 other emerging and established film critics including some of my fellow Chicago Indie Critics members and Aaron White of Feelin’ Film, accepted the invitation to participate. I’m honored by the opportunity, and I hope my responses are chosen each week.
THIS WEEK’S QUESTION: Which director are you most excited about watching in the next decade, and why are you excited for the potential of their future work?
Boy, it was hard to choose only one. From Damien Chazelle and Barry Jenkins to Denis Villeneuve and Christopher Nolan, we’ve seen so much maturation and growth from so many creative sources. However, I think it’s high time a woman to emerge to that next level. In just two films, the potential of Greta Gerwig is huge and only beginning.
