Sometimes a film-maker really gets "in the zone", producing a stream of quality films one after the other. Usually though a dud comes along to throw a spanner in the works.
For example Spielberg gave us Duel, Sugarland Express, Jaws and Close Encounters only to have his run broken by 1941. John Carpenter had Assault on Precinct 13, Halloween, The Fog, Escape From New York and The Thing before Christine scuppered his streak.
What is your favorite run from a film-maker? Kubrick from The Killing to The Shining? John Ford from My Darling Clementine to The Searchers? Even if you think it's Michael Bay from Bad Boys to The Island you're entitled to your opinion and we want to hear it. Simply write up a post and email the link to email@example.com
