My favourite contemporary director. Noah Baumbach.
Edited to add: I saw the Irishman. Meh. So many things bothered me about it, I could rant for hours. The only stand out thing, for me, was Joe Pesci, only because for once he wasn't playing Joe Pesci.
Update: Finally started this today, on chapter 3 and I have laughed A LOT. Her descriptions of certain people are so spot on (being of the same age) and living in a near by city. However it annoys me that she said she was born in 1973 but turned 25 in 2000, that doesn't add up. How did no one...
I went back to fringe last month and it's already annoying in my eyes. If you have thick hair where fringe stays in place, I say go for it. If it's thin like mine and just splits anyway, don't bother. IMHO
