[H}e's a one trick pony when it comes [to]themes.

I agree with you on that point. He treats the status quo (in his movies) with an intense disdain, sometimes quite deservedly so, but most times simply to beget cheap emotion from his audience (fear, sadness, etc.). He isn't a great film director like Scorcese, IMO, but he is a "people's" director. He's very good at tapping in to people's sympathies. Perhaps in the future he'll draw attention to current tragedies. Imagine what a movie like Hotel Rwanda could have acheived if it had had a director such as Speilberg at helm?

Hotel Rwanda was clearly inspired by Schindler's LIst. He is a great director. He's making a film about the 1972 Munich Olympics tragedy. Should be interesting.
