30 Film Directors Who Have Never Made a Bad Movie
Recently, we looked at 30 filmmakers who made only one well-reviewed movie over their entire careers, and then 25 great directors who missed out on perfection by just one film. But there is an even more elite group of film directors who have received critical acclaim for every single film they ever directed. In other words, they've never received anything but a green Metascore for one of their features.
How many of those directors can you guess? Check them all out in the gallery above. Note that we only looked at directors who have made at least five films since 1980.
Another English director with a cult following, Wright is best known for his "Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy of genre spoofs like Shaun of the Dead (horror), Hot Fuzz (action/cop drama), and The World's End (sci-fi).
Note that almost a decade before Shaun of the Dead, Wright did make one (barely) feature-length film, A Fistful of Fingers. That 1995 title, an expansion of a student project, was never released in theaters (until very recently) or on home video and does not have enough reviews for a Metascore.
In between Fingers and Shaun, Wright directed both seasons of the cult British comedy series Spaced. The director's next project could be his first animated film, Shadows, though that DreamWorks Animation title now appears to be in limbo as a result of corporate reorganization.
