David Owen Russell is an American film writer, director, and producer, known for a cinema of intense, tragi-comedic characters whose love of life can surpass dark circumstances faced in very specific worlds. His films address such themes as mental illness as stigma or hope; invention of self and survival; the family home as nexus of love, hate, transgression, and strength; women of power and inspiration; beauty and comedy found in twisted humble circumstances; the meaning of violence, war, and greed; and the redemptive power of music above all.
The main reason I chose David O. Russell for the next director tribute was, almost all of his films involve redemption. Characters who find their lowest point and allow themselves to be brought back up by some sort of act they must commit. I’ve always loved his films with how he displays families, love & mental illness.
Unfortunately I couldn’t get a copy of his first two films as if they aren’t on iTunes then I’d have to illegally download them and as I’ve said before I don’t believe in that. So hopefully you can understand! I will be doing another class of directors in my next two videos. Those Included as of now, Christopher Nolan & James Cameron.
