Alan J. Pakula
Writer, Director, See You In The Morning (1989)
Pakula's direction has the stylish yuppiness and pace of a Porsche from which all four wheels have been removed. Another is his screenplay, scene after scene of which resembles a
conscientious dramatisation of a psychology textbook by the most boring man in the world.
(Chris Tookey, Sunday Telegraph)
Director, The Pelican Brief (1993)
Pakula does to the John Grisham best-seller what he did three years ago to Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent: He stretches it out, films it in deep, important browns, and leeches the juice from his actors.
