If Julie Taymor is not among the filmmakers you’ve heard of, that’s a crying shame. Her 2000 debut was the three-hour adaptation of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus with Anthony Hopkins and Jessica Lange. In 2002, she led Salma Hayek to an Oscar nomination in the actress’ passion project Frida. Now, with Beatles music as her main source material, Taymor paints a beautiful, psychedelic and always visually stunning love story for the ages. Watch out for Eddie Izzard as Mr. Kite!

Note: Nominated for the Best Costume Design Oscar.
