56. Michel Gondry
ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND, THE SCIENCE OF SLEEP, BE KIND REWIND
From utter brilliance with Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind to his subpar director-for-hire work in The Green Hornet, Michel Gondry’s filmography is uneven. And while he is inconsistent, one thing is for certain, when he is at his artistic peak he is pushing cinema in ways that have not been done before. He has been accused of being self-indulgent with his unique style, however I would argue that his more personal work is simply how he sees the world. The Science of Sleep is Gondry’s heart and soul put to screen, and it is heartbreaking and beautiful. It is also undeniably unique and uncompromising, just like Gondry.
