The Top Directors Working Today: Brad Bird

Dave Poland described Brad Bird as “a Lifetime Achievement Award in the making.” He’s a Mozart in this business, with talent effortlessly flowing from every pore. I know some think he’s overrated, with films that are too long and not as emotionally deep as they seem. I couldn’t disagree more, and the more I learn about Bird’s artistic approach, the more I like what he’s doing. If not for his upcoming switch to live action, he could challenge Miazaki for the animation crown.

So, yeah, he’ll be on my final list. Anytime Brad Bird makes a movie, there’s a good chance it’ll be a masterpiece.
