Favorite Director(s).

Post by loro on Mon Oct 06, 2008 8:26 pm

Pretty self explanatory.

Just post who your favorite director or directors are. What movies have they made? What are your favorites they have done. Do they have any projects coming out that you're looking forward to?

Stanley Kubrick, Sergio Leone, and Dario Argento. Those are "real" directors. *turns up nose*

^^ Everyone who thinks Leone is overrated must be terribly overrated himself... the man was a genius...

Martin Scorsese (shame on all of you for not mentioning the director of Taxi Driver, Mean Streets and Raging bull)

Akira Kurusawa (7 Samurai, RAN, Kagemusha.... all pure genius... he was wy ahead of his time)

Fritz Lang (Metropolis)

Alfred Hitchcock (Psycho, the Birds, Strangers on a Train)

Stanly Kubrick (Shining, Dr. Strangelove)

Werner Herzog (Aguirre - the Wrath of the Gods, Fitzcarraldo, Nosferatu – Phantom of the night)

Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction.. duh)

Coen Brothers (Big Lebowski, Oh Brother where art though, No country for Old Men)

Scorcese and Kurasawa are both fantastic. Wow you Lang and Herzog? Cool. Bergman was another great director that no one has mentioned. Tarantino is overrated. Everything he's ever done has come from somewhere else. That doesn't mean that I don't love Reservoir Dogs but he is overrated.

^^ Wow you Lang and Herzog? I don´t get the question... must be a typo...

I can see why people would see Tarantino as overrated but Pulp Fiction and Resevoir Dogs set new standards in the 90s and Kill Bill is a fantastic blend of Italo Westerns and classic Samurai movies... everyone takes his ideas from somewhere but Tarantino fused lots of great styles that left a mark on him into one organic personal style like few others have... so no he´s not overrated unless you think he´s the best director ever...

Ingmar Bergman was one of the greats as well... Leni Riefenstahl also had great talent and influenced many but unfortunately she was instrumentalised by the Nazis which haunted her career... even though its propaganda, Triumph of the Will remains a masterpiece that will forever remind us of how cunning insanity and pure evil can be...

I meant "Wow! You like?" It was a typo.

I like Tarantino. Don't get me wrong, but to me most of his stuff is borrowed and to me that doesn't make him an all-time great director. I also think that his buddy Rodriguez is excellent too.

As long as we're talking about great directors, what about Sam Peckinpah? The final shootout in the Wild Bunch is one of my favorite action sequences ever.

^^ Yeah I´m a big fan of the old greats... Lang, Murnau, Herzog... not just germans... Orson Wells, Alfred Hitchcock, Buster Keaton, Marx Brothers, Charlie Chaplin...

Well I can see why you wouldn´t honor Tarantino yet... still I don´t see where he borrowed stuff where others didn´t ??? Everyone takes his inspiration from somewhere...

And yes Peckinpah was brilliant a well... Wild Bunch and Pat Garrett and Billie the Kid are timeless classics... I saw and interview once with a colleague of his who introduced Bob Dylan to him for the movie Pat Garrett and Billie the Kid... whe him and Dylan arrived at Peckinpahs house they heard a gunshot from inside... when they opened the door they found Peckinpah alone, drunk out of his mind and naked with nothing but a gun in his hand in front of a broken mirror... so they where of to a good start for that movie... amazing Dylan still agreed to the project... and good that he did... I guess Peckinpah was really on the edge of brilliance and insanity...

Oh and talking about brilliant westerns with brilliant music... McCabe and Mrs. Miller from Robert Altman with the music of Leonard Cohen is just brilliant as well...
