James Mangold has got one of the most interesting resumés of any filmmaker currently working. Firstly, he studied under the legendary Alexander Mackendrick ("The Sweet Smell Of Success") and his filmography is a fascinating potpourri of different genres. He kicked off his career with the stirring, minor key drama "Heavy" (which still needs a decent DVD release) and from there hopped to projects with varying styles including "Girl Interrupted," "Copland," "Identity," and "Walk The Line." This past summer he made his first bonafide tentpole picture, "Knight & Day," with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, which was hampered by some questionable marketing and somewhat diminishing returns.
