His films aren't "accessible" enough for him to be a Nolan/Spielberg/Tarantino level household name, but he has been nominated for seven Oscars to date, the most recent for writing Another Year (now playing in theatres). I love how disinterested he is in the trappings of Hollywood. He almost never uses A-list American stars. Instead he draws on the cream of the English character-acting crop, including the likes of Jim Broadbent, Sally Hawkins, Lesley Manville, Eddie Marsan, Timothy Spall, Imelda Staunton, and David Thewlis. You'll often see these actors in supporting roles in big Hollywood movies (say, Marsan in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes or Staunton & Thewlis in the Harry Potter series), but Leigh lets them headline his films, putting their brilliance, charm, and electrifying abilities to full use. His films always have a very appealing, "loose" quality. He doesn't write full screenplays; instead, he outlines characters and scenarios and then, with his cast, fills in the blanks via improvisation and on-set conversations. To watch a Mike Leigh film is to watch a film unconcerned with artificial drama, but fascinated by slice-of-life style observations. By simply showing interesting, "regular" lives on the screen, in films such as Secrets & Lies, Vera Drake, and Another Year, he cuts to the bone of the human condition. His films tend to be hilarious and painful, often at the same times. The way life so often is. So, I'm a big fan, obviously. Anyone else? Bonus Q: Favorite Mike Leigh film?
