Johnson Blooming as Director to Watch

Saw The Brothers Bloom last weekend. Really loved it. I loved it as much or more than the previous work from Writer/Director Rian Johnson. I love how Johnson in his films takes well known genres (film noir and con man, respectively) and breathes completely new life into them with deep character-driven stories and innovative storytelling. Plus, Rachel Weisz was amazing (Best Supporting Actress possibility?) and so was Rinko Kikuchi. Just when I thought that those genres had reached the limits of their respective creative limits, I was proven wrong. If only Johnson would take on Sci Fi. Oh wait...

Want to hear more about Rian Johnson and The Brothers Bloom? Riann did great interviews on the Filmspotting podcast and Elvis Mitchell's The Treatment on KCRW.
