    Another visually-exciting director, though the drama in his films sometimes seems to get second-billing.


    River Queen (2005) (completed)
    What Dreams May Come (1998)
    Map of the Human Heart (1993)
    The Navigator: A Mediaeval Odyssey (1988)
    ... aka The Navigator
    ... aka The Navigator: An Odyssey Across Time (USA: video title)
    Vigil (1984)



    Rank 'em, rate 'em, or just say you've never heard of him.

    Have the DVD of What Dreams May Come, I'll get around to watching it one of these days. Too bad Ward's Alien 3 never came to fruition. [​IMG]

    Name didn't ring a bell though I've obviously heard of a couple of his films.

    Out of [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    River Queen (2005) (completed)

    What Dreams May Come (1998) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]1/2 - Unfairly trashed because it cost 80 million to make but is too unusual for a mainstream audience. All the more baffling that George likes it. The fact it grossed somewhere around 150 million is a testament in some way. I also love the fact that I was certain the Heaven scenes were shot in New Zealand, but they are actually Glacier National Park.

    Map of the Human Heart (1993) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - Very nice, but the story is a bit convoluted.

    The Navigator: A Mediaeval Odyssey (1988) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]1/2 - Just a funky little story. Definitely Bergmanesque in the Medieval scenes.

    Vigil (1984) - I need to seek this one out.
