Here's a list of films Forster's done (or is doing currently) since his Oscar nomination:

Great Sex (2000 Supernova (2000) Altoona Riding Club, The (2000) Me, Myself and Irene (2000)
"Mulholland Drive" (1999) TV Series All the Rage (1999) Family Tree (1999) Kiss Toledo Goodbye (1999) Lakeboat (1999) Magic of Marciano, The (1999) Outside Ozona (1998) Psycho (1998) Rear Window (1998) (TV) Night Vision (1998) American Perfekt (1997)

A few of these have been good, several others aren't out yet. The others, I don't know about.
