Watch Hollywood Reporter's Full, Uncensored Director Roundtable With Guillermo del Toro, Greta Gerwig, Patty Jenkins, Angelina Jolie and More

Angelina Jolie, Denis Villeneuve and Joe Wright also open up about their latest films.

Filmmakers Guillermo del Toro, Greta Gerwig, Patty Jenkins, Denis Villeneuve, Angelina Jolie and Joe Wright open up about choosing the right projects ("You don't want to end up in a bad marriage"), firing staff and what it feels like to direct a movie that bombs: "People think you move on, but you don't."

The roundtable discussions began Sunday, Jan. 21 on SundanceTV as part of the cable channel's original nonfiction series, Close Up With The Hollywood Reporter, produced in partnership with THR. The full, uncensored discussion airs the following Monday online on THR.com.
