For audiences who live and breathe film, the cinematic atmosphere created by writer-director Jacques Audiard is among the most intoxicating and sustaining. Since the mid-1990s, he has immersed us in the deeply nuanced worlds of his intricately drawn characters, providing actors like Emmanuelle Devos, Romain Duris, and Tahar Rahim with career-defining roles in the process. A dedicated cinephile, Audiard plays with genre conventions, from crime-thriller to romance to Western, and infuses them with new vitality. On the occasion of his first English-language feature, The Sisters Brothers, we are excited to provide this look back on his remarkable accomplishments at mid-career.
