    He’s one of the good looking director in Hollywood. He done a good job directing Sin Nombre.

    @Living in a box: What are you talking about? Sin Nombre was average at best. Sure it had great cinematography and was an easy sell on the festival circuit but the story was sooooo average. Fukunaga may have a good eye but he’s a rather crappy writer.

    He’s gorgeous, that goes without saying. But OMG his movies are so flat. They are beautiful — he clearly has an eye for aesthetic and a great cinematographer, but he’s not that great at directing people and dialogue. His Jane Eyre was so bad I had to turn it off off after 30 minutes. I wanted to like it because that’s one of my favorite stories. But I felt NOTHING but boredom. Sin Nombre, the same. Nothing impressive, and it really downplays how truly corrupt and evil gang members are. He played too much into his liberal politics with that one. I was surprised that True Detective was so good because Fukunaga is not a compelling director usually.

    @Braided:

    I can’t tell if it’s his writing or his direction. Maybe it is his writing since True Detective was so good. It’ll be interesting to see what he does with Beasts of No Nation. It’s a vitally important topic, that’s for sure. Especially as we’re now witnessing a new generation of child soldiers fighting for ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
