Okay, I'm a little late too this, but I finished Season 1 True detective and CJF is my takeaway.
  1. 1.
    He directed True Detective
    I only want to watch True Detective S1 and The Jinx for the rest of my life! I mean Carcosa at the end!! Scary! Amazing!
  2. 2.
    He is objectively just like a VERY handsome dude. He's hot as hell.
    Bone structure like whoa, but super masculine.
  3. 3.
    He didn't always know he wanted to be a filmmaker. He got a job as camera intern and then applied to film school afterwards, showing us it's important to be passionate but it's possible to succeed even if you find your career path a little later. Not that mid 20's is so late. Also it obviously helps to be super talented.
  4. 4.
    He originally wanted to be a pro snowboarder. He's athletic and he's got that whole Haromine Korine skater guy swag thing going.
  5. 5.
    He's got range. He directed Jane Eyre and True Detective!
  6. 6.
    He rocks a man bun with a Barbour jacket.
  7. 7.
    He sometimes dresses like this
  8. 8.
    And other times dresses like this
    Dudes got swagger like whoa. (Oooh, hummus)
  9. 9.
    He's so well spoken and smart during the HBO post episode interview
  10. 10.
    Fluent in French and Spanish
  11. 11.
    No matter who he has kids with, babies will be ethnically ambiguous and adorable.
  12. 12.
    He left True Detective at its peak. That's cool as hell. He knows when to leave a party early and keep us wanting more!
  13. 13.
    I fear his next film will inspire a clothing collaboration with Opening Ceremony and I don't like it! Don't sell your swagger out!!
  14. 14.
    Is he on this app? No, right? If he were, his lists would be cool AF. But he busy.
