    I don’t know if I’d call him “emerging.” He’s been around a long time.

    I thought “Hearts of Darkness” was absolutely fascinating! I’m pretty sure he made that in the early ’90s.

    He also directed the first short version of “Sling Blade,” before Billy Bob took it over completely. A shame to hear he’s gone.
