Ang Lee won his second Academy Award as best director for “Life of Pi” (his first was for “Brokeback Mountain”).
In an article on leadership, Susan Cain gives a number of examples of “effective Asian-American leaders” incuding Ang Lee, and “novelist Chang Rae-Lee; fashion designer Vera Wang; New York Times literary critic Michiko Kakutani…the list goes on and on.”
One of the stars of “Life of Pi,” Adil Hussain, described how the Taiwanese filmmaker works.
He commented that Ang Lee is “so sensitive and the way he directs you is so silent. He’d whisper into your ear what he has to say.”
