definitely a good point
certainly one of my favourite contemporary filmmakers. his 3 feature films--Pride & Prejudice, Atonement, Hanna (w/ The Soloist a kind of freak accident)--are all striking, not the least for their strong, complex female characters and great kinetic form.
I just love his long takes. The beach scene in Atonement and the basement/bus station fight scene in Hanna. Most viewers probably wouldn't notice, but to film such long scenes with no cuts takes quite some talent and planning.
