EW Greatest Working Directors

Entertainment Weekly has just posted their list of the 25 Greatest Working Directors and ranked Paul at #11. Here's what they had to say:

11. Paul Thomas Anderson
THE EVIDENCE: Boogie Nights (1997), Magnolia (1999), There Will Be Blood (2007)
WHY HIM: One of the most dynamic directors to emerge in the last 20 years, Anderson makes movies that crackle with energy and typically showcase volcanic performances (see: Daniel Day-Lewis in Blood). Anderson is particularly good at taking a well-worn genre — the Western epic, the romantic comedy — and transforming it into something modern and unforgettable. — Tim Stack
Thought the list is (arbitrary and) weighted towards current favorites (would Fincher have ranked so highly after Benjamin Button came out?) it's nice to see PTA make the list even though he hasn't had a film out in almost 4 years. Check out the entire list at EW. (Thanks xixax!)


  1. Number eleven? Shows how out of touch EW is.

  2. Benjamin Button is Fincher's best film to date. Such a beautiful and tragic love story.
