Watch Hollywood Reporter's Full, Uncensored Director Roundtable With Bradley Cooper, Spike Lee, Alfonso Cuaron and More

The Director Roundtable also features Ryan Coogler, Yorgos Lanthimos and Marielle Heller, who sit down to talk about the present state of filmmaking.

Six leading directors — Ryan Coogler, Bradley Cooper, Alfonso Cuaron, Marielle Heller, Yorgos Lanthimos and Spike Lee — discuss how they conquer the fears of actors, the politics of art in "dangerous times," what you learn in film school and what can ruin a project: "In one word, Hollywood."

Viewers can watch the roundtable discussions every Sunday on SundanceTV as part of the cable channel's original nonfiction series, Close Up With The Hollywood Reporter, produced in partnership with THR. Come back to THR.com on Mondays after the shows air for the full, uncensored discussion online.

The first of seven episodes — the Director Roundtable — aired this Sunday, Jan. 13. For subsequent episodes, tune in every Sunday at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT on satellite on channel 557 on DirecTV and 126 on Dish nationwide, and at 10 a.m. ET/PT on cable (channel 625 on Spectrum in L.A., 94 in NYC).

The filmed roundtable panels feature Oscar nominated filmmakers and actors and other top stars from the year's top films, including actors, actresses, directors, producers, screenwriters, songwriters and documentary directors. Guests discuss everything from their individual projects to their craft and true stories from the business.
