As a regular critic for Paste, I was lucky enough to contribute to the list of the 50 best living directors that appeared in the March issue. (Martin Scorcese is #1; I contributed #23, David Cronenberg, and #12, Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne.)

There are some obvious omissions (I personally lamented the lack of Michel Gondry before we went to press), but it’s impossible to please everyone in lists like this one.

Shameless self-promotion: I was also thrilled to come up with the idea and write the copy for the eyeglasses spread in that issue.
