The Directors: Neil Jordan

Neil Jordan is a filmmaker who doesn’t stick to one genre. He seems to dive into areas that he’s never been in before. He was pretty prolific in the 90’s but seemed to slow down with filmmaking. He’s released two excellent fiction books but still has a focus on film. His typically deal with European themes that are easily translatable to anyone who can make an emotional connection with them. If you aren’t as familiar with the works of Jordan, I would suggest getting to know him sooner than later.

Author: Frank Mengarelli

Everybody relax, Frank's here. After going to film school at Columbia College Chicago, Frank decided to underachieve with his vast knowledge of film into a career in civil service. Frank had a brief stint as a film blogger, and then he met the heterosexual love of his life, Nick Clement. The two instantly bonded over their love from everything to Terence Malick to THE EXPENDABLES films. Some of Frank's favorite filmmakers are Terence Malick, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Sylvester Stallone, Oliver Stone and Spike Lee. Some of his favorite films are THE TREE OF LIFE, STAR WARS (all of them), BAD LIEUTENANT, THE THING and ALL THAT JAZZ. Frank spends his free time with his dog Roger, collecting any Star Wars collectible he can find and trying to finish his pretentious, first person narrative novel(la), LARGE MEN IN SMALL CARS..
