Modern Masters #5: Wes Anderson

TSPDT's latest list of the 1000 most-acclaimed films of this century is out. Based on that, I have selected filmmakers with the most impressive filmographies since 2000. Their ranking considers two aspects - how many of their films feature in Top 1000, and what is the respective rank of each of these films on that list.

"Anytime I make a movie, I really have absolutely no idea how it's going to go over."


45-year old American filmmaker

Has directed six films since 2000, ALL of which feature in Top 1000: The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) is highest rated at #39, followed by Moonrise KingdomFantastic Mr. FoxThe Grand Budapest Hotel, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and The Darjeeing Limited.

Trivia: Different of Anderson's films have been nominated at Cannes, Venice, and Berlin, as well as the Oscars, but have never won the top prize.
