How did he manage to go from Art House/Mexican to Hollywood Top Tier?
Art House/Mexican Cinema
> Amores Perros
> 21 Grams
> The Revenant
Because Emperors New Clothes.
The guy is a fucking colossal hack. Literally makes films about fucking nothing and tries to mimic the look of "Very Important Oscar Winning Cinema" and plebs eat it up.
>Did you know really long takes are Very Important Cinema
>Watch me put dozens of them in my movies now!
>Because this is what Very Important Cinema looks like
21 Grams is one of the most cringe worthy films I've ever seen in a cinema. It's literally Days Of Our Lives tier.
If you want to spot a hardcore IMDB pleb trying to pretend like they know something about films, just look for Inarritu's name on their list. He's second only to Nolan for plebbitor identification.
O. Russell at least had good films before becoming an Oscar nomination generating machine for movie stars.
Inarritu just makes Oscar show reels. Always has.
He's the cinematic equivalent of a chan poster who uses a trip code and uses all caps.
the only decent one I remember is Three Kings
I actually saw a bit of Joy the other night and it's surprisingly tolerable especially in light of his last few travesties. I haven't watched the whole thing but it looked like it might be his first okay movie since Three Kings.
Spanking The Monkey, Flirting With Disaster and Three Kings were all great. Even Huckabees has it's moments.
Even his comeback Oscar b8 like The Fighter or Silver Linings are good for what they are. Joy and Hustle have bits and pieces that are good, but the overall films are a mess.
He's not a complete hack/fraud like Inarritu or anything.
The Fighter is alright. Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle are aggressively terrible.
I guess he's not as bad as the current incarnation of Inarritu but he's still one of the worst offenders in Hollywood when it comes to Oscar baiting horseshit.
Babel turned me kinda racist and made he hate non Americans.
Fuck sand niggers
Also apparently Japanese beta males and short ass school girl skirts do exist outside of anime. Japan is doomed to fucking die
