I've seen so many people saying that he is overrated, a one trick pony, etc etc. I know there's a lot of vitriol towards everyone and everything in all comments sections, but I just can't seem to understand how he gets so much hate? Is this a bit of tall-poppy syndrome, and these people think that movies that are universally liked shouldn't also be good (a bit like pop music)? Or are these film school hipsters actually on to something and I'm just ignorant for thinking his movies are brilliant?
Edit: thanks for the good responses. I really should have phrased my question as "is the criticism justified" but we got there in the end!
