It’s always interesting to see what directors will do as their next project after they win Oscars. ¬†They are given freedom that they sometimes didn’t have before as production companies have more faith in them. ¬†In some cases, directors get to do dream projects.
Then take Danny Boyle. ¬†Like his movies or not, you can’t deny that he may be one of the more eclectic directors around. ¬†He’s done horror, science fiction, romantic comedy, won an Oscar for Slumdog Millionaire, and now uses all his tricks in 127 Hours. ¬†While James Franco may occupy the screen for the entirety of the film, its all about Danny Boyle.
