dunno the others.
it was a sort of experiment to see if anyone had....i dunno...i saw an ad in sight and sound, and these directors films are in a 'masters of cinema' collection.
and it annoyed me that they are held in such high regard but i've never heard of them.....not in a 'why don't i know them' way, but a....why aren't they more widely discussed, type way....
i dunno....it's fucked up the ammount of directors that are revered that never get coverage really....the only chance you've got of seeing their films is forking out 25 quid for a dvd....it's a horrible circle of films being hard to obtain, but praise being heaped upon them....makes you realise that even the art house cinemas don't always delve right in.....
it would never happen with music. imagine one of the most 'influential', important artists of all time and only two people on the board had even had a whiff of them. wouldn't happen, surely?
i dunno....there might be a point buried under all this....but it might just be nothing more than me being annoyed at being skint and any cinema near me showing the square root of fuck all.
