Truman Show Director Quit Making Movies, According to Ethan Hawke

Entertainment News, Movies

Moon Knight actor Ethan Hawke explains why he thinks The Truman Show director Peter Weir hasn’t made a new film since 2010’s The Way Back. Ethan Hawke comments on why he thinks The Truman Show director Peter Weir quit making movies. Weir is the Australian-born director of movies like Gallipoli, Witness, The Truman Show, Master and Commander, and other artistic Hollywood classics. His last film was 2010’s Oscar-nominated The Way Back with Colin Farrell, Ed Harris, Jim Sturgess, and Saoirse Ronan. Hawke starred in one of Weir’s more famous films, Dead Poet’s Society with Robin Williams, which won Best Screenplay for Tom Schulman.

Hawke recently appeared in Marvel’s Moon Knight series on Disney+, playing the lead villain, Arthur Harrow, as well as Scott Derrickson’s latest horror effort, The Black Phone, again as the lead villain character. The actor has appeared in countless films throughout his diverse career, including Reality Bites, Training Day, Boyhood, Gattaca, and many more, working with some of the biggest creative names in Hollywood. Hawke has also worked as a writer and a director, set to release a new 6-part documentary series on HBO about the late Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward titled The Last Movie Stars.

Best Movies On Amazon Prime offers lots of movies to stream, but it can be hard to figure out what’s worth streaming. Here are Amazon Prime’s 25 best movies. Amazon Prime’s 25 best movies available right now on the streaming service. Amazon Prime has become a serious competitor to streaming giants like Netflix, Disney+, and HBO Max, benefiting from the large existing user base of the Prime delivery service. Each service offers its own large selection of movies, with thousands of titles of various calibers included. While Amazon Prime’s original movie offerings have been somewhat underwhelming, the service boasts an impressive catalogue of acquired titles.

Amazon Prime’s best movies can be found below, featuring a mix of blockbuster hits, award-winning critical darlings, hilarious comedies, and more. The list below attempts to include something for everyone, and thankfully, Amazon Prime’s selection houses quite the robust grouping of worthwhile streaming choices.

Before the list begins properly, there are some important notes to be made. First, the movies below are available to stream on Amazon Prime at the time of this writing. As Amazon Prime movies expire, the list will be updated, and new great options will be added. Also, Amazon Prime’s best movies below — while numbered for convenience — are not ranked. So the movie marked number one is not meant to necessarily be seen as superior to the movie at number 25.

Best Director Oscar four times (Witness, Dead Poets Society, The Truman Show, Master And Commander: The Far Side of the World), but never secured a win. He is set to receive an honorary Oscar from the 13th Governors Awards, which recognizes individuals who have made “indelible contributions to cinema,” which Weir certainly has. The director has created a prominent filmography throughout his career, which began in 1968 and seemingly closed out in 2010.

It’s a shame that Weir hasn’t been behind the camera since The Way Back, which itself was an exceptional film. Weir has always managed to make art films that are disguised as commercial ones, which has been a hallmark of his creativity. Having worked with a bevy of exceptional talent, the director has helped forge or alter careers, like Ethan Hawke in Dead Poets Society, Jim Carrey in The Truman Show, Mel Gibson in Gallipoli, and Jeff Bridges in Fearless. It’s interesting to wonder what Weir would do with the next generation of talent, with actors like Timothée Chalamet, Ryan Gosling, or Zendaya, but it appears that day may never come, leaving fans to enjoy what the director has already given to the craft, which is an already amazing filmography.
