Default The Films of Neil Jordan

With the release of Byzantium,I thought here's a guy that doesn't get discussed here often,and it's time to put that right.
I'd be hard pushed to think of a film made by this Irishman that wasn't entertaining.....

I remember Vestron Video's big push for the release of The Company of Wolves back in the eighties with a naked chick on the posters!

Who doesn't remember their jaw hitting the ground in that scene in The Crying Game?

And with maybe the exception of Collateral,was Tom Cruise ever so fiendishly evil as Lestat in Interview with the Vampire?

Discuss this enigmatic Irish fellow here....

I think i'm about the only person on the Labs who loves Interview With the Vampire.

The Company of Wolves, The Brave One, The Good Thief and The End of the Affair are the others i own and are all very good.

I love the artwork for Byzantium by the way.

Big fan. Consistently interesting filmmaker, even when some of the films are compromised and not wholly successful (In Dreams). Made fair share of excellent films (Company of Wolves, Mona Lisa, Crying Game, Interview with the Vampire) and only one duffer that I've seen (High Spirits).

Fair few of his films I've not seen (despite the fact I own them all bar High Spirits, The Miracle and the latest one). Will have to sort that out

It would appear you aren't mate.....

Stephen Rea,a superb actor,is the Michael Ripper of Jordan's films-he pops up everywhere!

Likewise.

Anyway-watched Byzantium yesterday-and I can highly recommend it.
It harks back to that grim Brit setting feeling of Jordan's earlier Mona Lisa and The Crying Game.
And Gemma Artherton-is there a more attractive female to look at on screen just now?
I think not!

Lovely Gemma...I like a few of Jordan's films, "Angel" Mona Lisa", "The Company of Wolves" and the latest being my faves. "High Spirits" is one of the handful of films I stopped watching half way through and returned to the video shop. Bloody awful.
