John Hughes

John Hughes died today. He wasn’t a great director, like Scorsese or Hitchcock, but he was a very good director. He managed to encapsulate a time — the 1980s — in a way few directors can. And he made some really enjoyable films, like Planes, Trains & Automobiles. It seems right that his films had great soundtracks, because like a good pop song, his movies managed to capture something that was both light and timeless.
Here’s Steve Martin and John Candy…enjoy.
