The Top Directors Working Today: Danny Boyle

Most may see Danny Boyle as hit and miss, but I think even when he misses, there’s still a lot of interesting storytelling going on. I’ll admit that I like The Beach, but A Life Less Ordinary is one of those films so bad that, to quote Ebert, “Only a talented director could create something so awful.”

While it’s not a sure bet that a random Boyle will be a great film, the ones that score (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later…) score big. Boyle never plays it safe, but I admire his experimentation and will see his films, with fingers crossed, the week they open.
