The Top Directors Working Today: Paul Thomas Anderson

Paul Thomas Anderson has demonstrated a mastery of the styles forged by Altman, Scorsese and Kubrick, but his creations stand on their own two legs and each film attempts to be nothing less than defining cinematic statements. If the last movie ever made was a P. T. Anderson film, than cinema itself would go out on a very high note. This is a discussion of directors whose next film MIGHT be a masterpiece, and with Anderson, I’d say your odds are very good.

Very well stated. PT Anderson is probably my favorite working director and while in my opinion he has directed some of the finest films of the last 10 years, I still hope and believe that the best is still yet to come.

Though a part of me wishes he'd take a step back with his next project and create something along the lines of Punch Drunk Love, a masterpiece in its own right, but not so heavy handed.
