"Fly"- Breaking Bad is still the best thing he's directed.

Haven't seen Looper yet, but he'll have a hard time directing anything better (or, you know, even another film that rises above pretty good) than The Life of the World to Come.

Both of his BB episodes I found to be pretty terrible.

EDIT: Especially since one doesn't even realize that, since it's meant to immortalize FLY, it's an acronym!

This seems precisely right for my current feelings. Maybe I'd bump The Brothers Bloom up to a solid B.

The Brothers Bloom is great. Super fun. But Brick is transcendentally awesome.

Looper will soon be watched, though, so I may need to repost.
