Sally Potter

Director of Orlando.

Indifferent Orlando (1992) -- It's amazing that a movie that has so much potential for exploration (a man who lives over 400 years and turns into a woman in the middle of doing so) does next to nothing to stir up thoughts, feelings, ideas, or much of anything in its audience.  I admire that nothing is "explained," but that doesn't mean that everything should be ignored as well.  One story gets dropped as soon as it almost begins to get interesting and we're on to something else.
