Directed by Steve McQueen (Maple Pictures)

Sorry, zombie enthusiasts---the Steve McQueen who directed the Camera d'Or-winning Hunger is not, in fact, the long-dead star of The Great Escape. No matter: this Steve is a careful, deliberate English artist skilled at crafting exquisitely well-composed film frames---and a new filmmaker worth getting pretty damn excited about. Hunger, set during the prelude to and beginning of the 1981 Irish hunger strike, is a painstakingly structured film packed with beautiful, memorable images. McQueen makes a guard smoking in the snow---and the mopping-up of urine---into art.
