Auteur Watch - Michael and Peter Spierig
I hate to be glib at a time like this, but the Spierig brothers represents everything wrong with the future of cinema today. Special effects wizards-turned-directors, why does every film have to be about zombies and vampires these days? You've never seen a Merchant-Ivory film about zombies, have you? Is this all cinema's going to be from now on? A yearly homage to Night of the Living Dead and Dracula in 3-D forever and ever, Amen? At least Michael Bay has Transformers! Wait til he gets into the zombies and vampires game! Oh, right... he just PRODUCES those movies.
