I definitely prefer what he's doing now to some of his limp mainstream stuff (Ah, who can forget the Bill Cosby farting scene from Jack
?), though the new stuff certainly has problems of its own. I prefer Youth Without Youth
... the films are about even in terms of artistry (superb) and storytelling (not-so-superb), but Tim Roth's central performance in the former film is fascinating while Vincent Gallo's central performance in the latter is pretty dull.
