RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

Having established himself as a compelling filmmaker in his native Mexico, director Alfonso Cuarón came to international attention with his hit, "Love in the Time of Hysteria" ("Solo Con Tu Pareja") (1991), which opened up the doors of Hollywood. His inventive romantic comedy led famed producer and director Sydney Pollack to hire Cuarón to direct an episode of his noir anthology series, "Fallen Angels" (Showtime, 1993-95). Soon it was a quick jump to his first American feature, "The Little Princess" (1995), which earned the praise of critics, but failed to become a box office success. Following the box office failure of his next film, a contemporary adaptation of Charles Dickens' "Great Expectation" (1997), Cuarón returned to Mexico to direct the funny, politically conscious and unabashedly sexual "Y tu mamá también" ("And Your Mother, Too") (2001), which propelled him to the upper tier of international filmmakers. Though graphic in its depiction of sexuality, the film nonetheless led to Cuarón's next job, directing "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" (2004), one of the darker and more thrilling films in the successful franchise. Cuarón then helmed perhaps his finest work, "Children of Men" (2006), a dystopian science fiction thriller that garnered widespread acclaim and turned the director into a household name.
