Best Director of 2020 (Movie)

This year’s candidates for coach all spoke powerfully and timely about fraud, rewards and survival. All of their films deal with either the toxic relationship between former lovers, or the frayed relationship and destroyed trust between vulnerable members of the community and the forces that exist. Each of these five nominated directors offers all of these powerful stories. These are the best film directors nominated for 2020.

Spike Lee, Da Five Blood

Spike Lee still has the game. One thing I can say about him is that in nearly 40 years of filmmaking, he never repeats himself, always doing new things in new ways. And Da 5 Bloods is no exception. It covers the subject matter terrain that is very familiar to him and us, but he does it in a fresh and insightful way. Da 5 Bloods, benefiting from a powerful story organized by a solid ensemble, acts as a caper, a drama, and a scorching commentary on the current cultural moment.

Steve McQueen, a little ax

Steve McQueen’s Small Ax Anthology focuses on London’s West Indies community from the 1960s to the 1980s. Four of the five films are based on the true story of racial injustice, and another Lovers Rock is a fascinating party piece with a similar theme and a more poetic tone. All five are visually dynamic and clear, shot through with a powerful blend of idiosyncrasies and universality (not to mention the spectacular soundtrack). With Lovers Rock, McQueen turns a simple story into a spiritual experience, capturing the tensions of floric, entrance and interpersonal relationships through subtle cultural lenses. Another fiery entry-red, white, blue-features the best work of his career from John Boyega as a real London cop in the 1980s struggling to reform police brutal immigrant fathers. I am. The predatory relationship between police and West Indies immigrants is largely documented in Mangrove, another fascinating and disastrous movie about the actual proceedings of the 1960s. The final film, “Education,” is a bitter and influential interrogation of systematic racism in the London school system of the time, through the eyes of a bright and ambitious child, Kingsley (from Sundi, Kenya). Thanks to his teacher’s negligence and ridicule (with a stunning breakout performance), he never learned to read. The historic struggle of Small Ax isn’t over yet, but McQueen’s skills to capture bruise, heartache, and even the joint joy of the revolution have skillfully brought these struggles to the present, making McQueen the most empathetic and skilled. As one of the directors who made it solid for his generation.

Aaron Sorkin, The Trial of the Chicago 7

He talks about Aaron Sorkin’s screenplay skills, and even for a moment, something about how many talented players are willing to line up for the opportunity to speak his words. But beyond the ensemble and the script of the Trial of the Chicago 7, Sorkin shows in this film the mastery of the form itself, which uses the entire film’s equipment to weave a story of injustice in search of answers. This is his second directorial activity, but the filmmaker has created a thoughtful meditation on a truly nightmare event, the distortion of the well-procedural Kafkaesque in front of the whole country. Given both the subject and the technology it offers, this is the movie that arrived exactly at the time when it was most influential.

Leigh Whannell, Invisible Man

With the upgrade, Leigh Whannell demanded attention as an original writer / director with some serious action chops and unusual unexamined eyes. But in Universal’s latest view of the iconic transparent human, Wanell turned to the horror of domestic violence and made an impressive, fun and dark return to the horror genre he named as the co-creator of the So franchise. Did. From the gray sky of San Francisco to the concrete walls of the looming house of the title character, visible transparent humans have effective coldness and coldness. There’s a gritty moody that can’t be completely escaped, and that’s the point. When it comes to invisible man, there’s nothing that means being comfortable. Wannel and cinematographer Stephen Ducio take one of the darkest aspects of humanity and then fill every moment with horror and anxiety that is perfectly appropriate for a horror film that squeezes out as much horror as possible.

Cathy Yan, Bird of Prey

When Harley Quinn tells the unlikely story of her liberation and the woman inadvertently involved in it, the raptor conspiracy bends, slips, and doubles in itself. It’s all pretty complicated, but thankfully Cathy Yan’s stylish direction and sharp comedy timing sensation keeps things alive, even as the story begins to get tense with the weight of many competing stories. I will. The combination of the movie’s bizarre energy, visceral fighting sequence, and focus on one of DC’s most fascinating characters is a big, exaggerated cartoon that isn’t afraid to accept DC’s inherent ridiculous things. The book continues to adapt.
