Couldn't be any less interesting than Inarritu's BABEL, BIRDMAN or REVENANT. Or maybe it could. Sorry to distract. Moving on.

This is indeed a good time to move on, because one more of those posts designed to further provoke one or more moderators here is probably not going to have the result you want

I’ve seen only Amores Perros, The Revenant and Birdman, so I assosiate Inarritu mostly with movies, that are excessively grinding and raw emotionally. Birdman was a pleasant surprise, as it seemed to deal with this desire to get your guts wrenched by stuff that makes you hatefull or anxious and especially how producing that stuff seems to be the measure of a true artist. I loved how Birdman used absurd humor and magical realism and hope Inarritu would use those tools more. Birdman is also one of top movies that really makes me happy to have witnessed this era of movie making and it’s technical possibilities. It’s masterfully executed.

I haven't seen anything post-Babel (of that early trilogy, I share Persona's views from page one pretty much precisely), but Birdman is on my to-watch list, and looks like something genuinely different and interesting (I'm actually kind of astounded that it won an Oscar for best film – seems far more experimental and left-field than most contenders).

Interesting to read in that DGA article about his working relationship with Cuarón and del Toro, each of whom are also interesting but often frustrating and disappointing directors. While he may not be associated with that clique, I feel like fourth musketeer Carlos Reygadas (arguably the only other twenty-first-century Mexican director of comparable international standing, right?) shares more than a few sensibilities and has a much higher batting average to boot.
