Both Screenwriter and Director

American screenwriter, producer, director and actor Paul Haggis has substantially gone down in world cinema's history. Currently he is an author of more than thirty-five feature length films' scripts among which are such significant films as "Million Dollar Baby" (2004), "Flags of Our Fathers"(2006), "Letters from Iwo Jima", "Casino Royale"(2006), "Quantum of Solace" (2008), "Terminator Salvation" (2009). His directorial works are of interest as well. The article is devoted to brief analysis of this "second" and less known Haggis' profession.
