Atom Egoyan (*1960)

Canadian auteur Atom Egoyan's films are getting better and better. From his respected early films THE ADJUSTER (1991) and EXOTICA (1994) to his - for a man in his thirties - already masterful dramas THE SWEET HEREAFTER (1997) and FELICIA'S JOURNEY (1999). These dramas earned him comparisons with legendary French director Claude Chabrol. After his feature film debut, NEXT OF KIN (at the age of 24!), Egoyan also directed episodes for "The Twilight Zone", "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" and "Friday the 13th". He is next to David Cronenberg the most important Canadian filmmaker.
