Joseph Losey

Highest Rated: 100% The Go-Between (1971)

Lowest Rated: 20% Boom! (1968)

Birthday: Jan 14, 1909

Birthplace: La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA

Joseph Losey, born to a family whose American roots predated the American Revolution, has been called the "most European of American directors." His influences include Bertolt Brecht and Harold Pinter as well as Italian neo-realism and German expressionism. In 1935, he even studied under Sergei Eisenstein in Moscow, where he also met Brecht. It was his blacklisting in 1951, however, that forced Losey to make Europe his home.
