Didn't know what July 22 was until looking it up after seeing it on this thread. Will definitely have to watch that.
Greengrass was one of the first directors I got into as a name when I was first getting into movies during his United 93/Bourne Ultimatum period. United 93 is a masterpiece, one of the best re-creations of an important historical event ever, and in my top ten of all time. Bourne Ultimatum is one of the best action movies of all time and legit channels The French Connection in that last act in New York. Outside of that, Supremacy and Captain Phillips are solid. Bloody Sunday is well meaning but I can't get past the bad TV movie production values and he really hadn't come into his own as a director then. Green Zone was a turd. I'd mercifully forgotten the new Bourne movie even existed until now so thanks a lot for that everyone. IMDB says he has a 1984 adaptation in the works, so good luck to him with that, it's a tough adaptation. The 84 version is as good as you can really do with the book, IMO, but I'm interested to see what a director like him would do with it.
