Bryan Singer is one of those Director’s who has successfully managed to incorporate in his body of work both low-budget psychological thrillers (The Usual Suspects, Apt Pupil) and Hollywood blockbusters (“X-Men”,X-Men: First Class“, “X2). Singer also has acclaimed TV producing credits under his belt, bringing to the small screen series like House M.D.” and Dirty Sexy Money. With his latest project, “Jack the Giant Slayer” finally premiering in the UK & Europe today (22 March), Film Doctor turns your attention to the cinematic preferences that shaped Mr. Singer as filmmaker.
