    What films do you think would be different in the best way in another director’s hands? I can think of a couple:

    The King’s Speech – directed by Kenneth Branagh, produced by Tim Bevan & Eric Fellner and Working Title

    Dances with Wolves – directed by Terrence Malick

    The Color Purple – directed by Joel Schumacher

    The Iron Lady – directed by Mike Leigh (I think if he directed this film, either Brenda Blethyn or Lesley Manville)

    What are your thoughts?

    I’m just curious as to why you’d choose Joel Schumacher for THE COLOR PURPLE?

    The others are fantastic choices that I would’ve loved to have seen.

    I’m just thinking of his association with films like Sparkle and The Wiz, and this would be before he directed Batman & Robin.

    How about Rob Marshall or Bill Condon? Any of these directors can do a little justice I think.

    I like the movie Harriet but I think it would be more great if it was in the hands of Ridley Scott or Ang Lee.

    There’d be some dismay that the movie would be directed by a non-black director but I think they’d present a distinctive vision for the movie.

    This is what I would have done. Send all American critics to a desert island. No contact with civlization so they cannot hear who made what movie. Then screen 12YS and Green Book but swap Farrelly and McQueen names in credits. Reviews should be fun to watch. Guaranted that 12YS wouldn’t be as raved as it was while GB would have been much better received and no controversy.

    At least people could jump to Scott’s defense for having directed some of the most iconic female characters of all time.

    I have a feeling Bradley would be nominated for Director this time since he’s not directing himself. I feel like there’s a stigma specifically surrounding actors directing themselves, which also hurt Denzel Washington and Ben Affleck.
