I think I agree on all counts although I'm ambivalent toward Drive
, then again I like Mann and kinda enjoy his "hollowing out" operation, I find Miami Vice

In the meantime, you should also look for Nichols' previous film, [i[Shotgun Stories[/i]. While it's not as good, it's still well worth watching.
Off the top of my head, I can't think of any (good) directors working exclusively in sci-fi at the moment. Nobody say Primer
Can't wait to see Take Shelter
, and yeah Shotgun Stories
was pretty good.
Kinda related but I just found out that David Gordon Green directed The Sitter
What about Moon
re: sci-fi ?

For upcoming sci-fi, look up Looper

Ha, I was about to post the exact same thing, I'm pretty sure my fondness for Nic Cage mainly stems from The Rock
and maybe a couple of other films I saw as a kid like Face Off, Con Air etc. The Rock
is sacred though.
Anyone saw the original Wicker Man ? It's supposedly pretty good, I bought it a while ago but can't find the dvd anymore.
