... John Patrick Shanley.
I remember seeing a preview screening of the Moonstruck Oscar-winner's directorial debut Joe Versus The Volcano at my local cinema a few weeks before it came out and absolutely loving it. I've seen it many times since then and its charms haven't faded one bit. I don't consider it to be a guilty pleasure because I don't feel guilty for liking it.
Doubt, based on Shanley's own play, marks his first time behind the camera since Joe. And that cast is mighty impressive.
