Auteur Watch - Kasi Lemmons

Awright! My 600th post. And what better time than to profile our next auteur? It's Kasi Lemmons! A veteran Hollywood actress, she'd been in too many movies like The Silence of The Lambs and thought to herself, well, hell! If those bozoes can do it, I might as well direct these turkeys myself! ...or was it The Five Heartbeats? I don't know. Anyway, she must not be the main breadwinner in the family. No, Vondie's got that job, but she does choose her projects carefully. Eve's Bayou was a critical smash, if not amongst the populace at large. Then there was The Caveman's Valentine. She caught Anthony Michael Hall in a transition period in his career. Between that and Freddy Got Fingered, he had a great 2001 even if the rest of us didn't. Then she tried to ride Don Cheadle's coattails with Talk To Me. What more do you ungrateful bastards WANT from her? Call her, Ejiofor...
