Cant wait to hear ur opinion
Has your dad seen any of his old ones like Raging Bull, Mean Streats or Taxi Driver? Some of his early movies are very male, if you know what I mean, but also great.
In my opinion Spike Lee has talent like Scorsese, but I haven't seen any of his recent stuff.
You rarely see excellent filmmakers, as not only does it take talent to put your stuff up on the final screen product, it also takes alot of "balls" as producers can really drain the creativity out of directors due to budget and what they think the average viewer will appreciate.
That's why some of the really low budget projects have great success. They didn't have the money pressures on them in the same way and had to come up the most creative, yet cost effecient ways of doing things. Versus changing action and script to impress 14 year old target markets.
Once these low budget directors get popular, the producers will drain the life out of them for a buck and to sell their name, while promising them a $100 million budget in return.
Hence why I say success in filmmaking takes talent and "balls". Sorry to be crude with the terminology.
