Earlier today, my friend Morgan asked me to name--off the top of my head--a pair of consecutive movies that showed an enormous fall from grace for a filmmaker. That is: Film A is considered an unimpeachable masterpiece and was followed by an utterly disasterous Film B. Morgan's example:
- Schindler's List -> The Lost World: Jurassic Park 2.
I guess I have Altman on the brain (sigh) as my first thought was:
- Short Cuts -> Prêt-à-Porter.
- sex, lies, and videotape -> Kafka.
Kinda fun, no? Your picks in the comment section. (And I'm opening it up to... whatever. It doesn't have to be a director; musicians, authors, actors, etc. are all fair game.)
