  3. Sofia has had the good fortune to work with a lot of great designers. Jasna Stefanovic (The Virgin Suicides) being my favourite of the bunch.

    Tarsem and Wes are both very visual filmmakers. Almodovar as well. It always helps when you have a director who actually understands great composition. 🙂
