    In December 2022, like every year, Variety organized its annual flagship series ‘Directors on Directors’. For the 2022 edition, they invited the pop star turned-director Taylor Swift and the British playwright Martin McDonagh. The two already knew one another closely due to Phoebe Waller-Bridge. She is Martin’s girlfriend and Swift’s close friend. During the conversation, the two expressed their mutual admiration for one another.

    They talked about their respective projects that were the subject of the conversation. The two mavericks also talked about why they started directing and specific questions about certain scenes in their projects.

    Like Swift asked Martin about the scene when he realizes that his horse has died due to one of Colm’s acts of defiance. But, the conversation lacked depth. And foremost, someone else more deserving than her. There were other deserving feature directors. Like Charlotte Wells, who directed the year’s best emotional film ‘Aftersun’.
