Spoiler alert!

He directed Philadelphia AND Springsteen’s Streets of Philadelphia video! Has any other director done that? Directed the music video of a song from the soundtrack of their own film?

Michel Gondry maybe?

Oh maybe. The Beck song from Eternal Sunshine, perhaps.


Watched Silence of the Lambs with the kids just a couple of weeks back. What a film

I think it was a big surprise at the time as well considering Demme was most famous for his comedy films up to then. Would be like Paul Feig or something doing an Oscar-winning brutal crime drama now.
