Carl Franklin is one of these filmmakers, much like Kasi Lemmons, or Johnnie To or Richard Stanley or Ben Ramsey or John Hyams, or the Hughes Brothers that I am always desperate to see a new film by. I think these are unique Directorial voices, visionary voices, that give us cinema that lingers and excites. These directors not cranking out a new film every two years, not able to create their auteur body of work, the loss belongs to us the film fans.  I hope to interview Mr. Franklin this year, who has kept busy with television work, and inquire when we can expect a feature film from him.
