One to watch: Jeff Nichols

Jeff Nichols's Midnight Special is now in theaters.  The more I saw the trailers on TV the more I knew that name.  I haven't seen any of his movies yet, but he's consistently been working on buzz-worthy projects.  First was Take Shelter, the 2011 film that helped create buzz around Michael Shannon.  Then there was 2012's Mud, which was an integral part of Matthew McConnaughey's comeback.  He also directed Shannon in 2007's Shotgun Stories, and is working on Loving with Joel Edgerton, who has been a favorite of mine since Warrior (which is in fact one of my all-time favorite movies).

So I'm making a note about Nichols here, and for anyone else who happens to stumble by...
