Who Is Timur Bekmambetov?

He's the director of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Wanted and the Night Watch/Day Watch films. Because I liked Vampire Hunter -- and really hated Wanted -- I decided to write a think-piece about Bekmambetov's particular filmmaking approach. I grant you that my "think-piece" may represent more thinking than Bekmambetov has given his entire oeuvre. My article is up on Deadspin.

(P.S. I do love how in every publicity still the director is always either pointing or wearing headphones. Look how busy he is! Directors are always doin' stuff!)
