On this weeks BTSD Alex referred to NYU film school as the "DeVry University of film schools," a school whole alumni is more notable for their profitability rather than their creativity. I'm not meaning to troll but I really think Alex is wrong about this. The following filmmakers have all graduated from Tisch School of Arts at NYU:
Joel Coen of the Coen Brothers
Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine, Synecdoche New York, Being John Malkovich)
Paul Thomas Anderson (the good Paul Anderson)
I find it hard to understand how a school that has turned out some of the greatest filmmakers of our time "the DeVry" of film schools.
