Looks like I have another favourite director

I've got a new director to add to my list of favourites. Sofia Coppola has now joined the other two directors whose films I will always see (yes, even if they cast someone ghastly).

Lost in Translation has had that big an impact on me that Holly and I are still discussing the finer points now, over a month after we first saw it. What an amazing film. Subtle, beautiful, dreamy and thought-provoking. I'm still amazed at how good such a simple plot has been made.

So who are the other "must see" directors? Well Kevin Smith, of course, and Darren Aronofsky. Go and see everything they've done, though I'd suggest leaving one of them until the end...
