The Creator (2023)

Ever since the release of 2010’s Monsters, there has been considerable promise for writer/director Gareth Edwards which led him to high-profile works. That promise has since been compromised by studio interference, with creative differences on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story leading to Tony Gilroy overseeing reshoots. The Creator, Edwards’ first feature in seven years feels like a return to DIY filmmaking, allowing his vision to be fulfilled without the limitations that blockbuster filmmaking can bring.
