Later, he took viewers into the world of small-town Missouri with the sequence “Sharp Objects,” which was nominated for eight Emmys. He was the sequence’ sole director.
In an interview with The New York Times in 2018, Mr. Vallée described his work as trying to show the issues and imperfection in human nature. “I see that I seem to be attracted to these stories and to underdog characters,” Mr. Vallée mentioned. He added: “The humanity, the beautiful humanity, is dark.”
Mr. Vallée was born on March 9, 1963, in Montreal. He studied filmmaking on the Collège Ahuntsic and the Université du Québec à Montreal. He’s survived by two sons, Alex Vallée and Emile Vallée; and siblings Marie-Josée Vallée, Stéphane Tousignant and Gérald Vallée.
In an announcement, Nathan Ross, Mr. Vallée’s producing associate and shut pal, described him as a “true artist” who stood for “creativity, authenticity and trying things differently.”
“The maestro will sorely be missed,” he mentioned, including, “It comforts knowing his beautiful style and impactful work he shared with the world will live on.”
