Inspired by the other thread about talented people who later lost that spark, I thought it might be nice to explore the other, more positive side of that coin: what top talents have managed to stay consistently great, even as their contemporaries have faded?
John Williams stands out for me - after a long career filled with amazing and iconic music he’s still working on movies and coming up with strong new stuff (like his work on The Force Awakens, and more recently The Last Jedi).
Another is Tarantino - everybody has their favourites and lesser favourites of his movies, but even when you take into account his occasional misfire I think he’s still making great must-watch films that I’m guaranteed to want to watch simply because it’s him.
David Attenborough is another one whose appeal has never waned for me. I think he’s a special talent who has genuinely made the world a better place with his work, and continues to do so with every project.
