in my eyes, she's a good stylist, but a bad story teller. and whether she is a good director or not, everyone has his/her opinion. but to me, if you can't tell a story well, it's just all style, no substance. no matter how much visual or vocal beauty to please the senses, it just doesn't cut it for me. deep down, i'm all for a good solid story.
yes, and her characters are really quite annoying, very spoilt and very immature. somehow that makes me feel indifferent toward her, sorry, i can't help it. it's kind of like a projection of herself to some extent. there's just nothing HUMBLE about her characters, nothing.
