Mine is David Cronenberg. I've somehow seen all his movies with the exception of Shivers, M.Butterfly and Spider.
think ive seen everything they've done at least twice, some loads of times. and even their worst films are still good! :P
Kubrick, Lynch, Greenaway, GODARD.
The man really embraces the academia of cinema.
And 'A Walk Through H' is one of the most strangely poignant short films I've ever seen.
But shame on for picking the obvious student choice.
Yes. That's it.
the man was a bit of a genius.
I've seen pretty much everything he's done aside from Jackie Brown and Four Rooms.
I'm familiar with a lot of stuff by the likes of Lynch, Cronenberg, Miike but the latter especially has too much which is too hard to get hold of.
Four Rooms...not so much.
I shall be checking it out shortly.
It's watchable, but I wouldn't say it has the humour or excellence of Pulp Fiction. Maybe because I had to watch it in several sittings, and that always ruins a movie.
Opinions on Deathproof? Not great, but I still quite liked it. Not sure I could do it again.
Del Toro, Tarantino; the former's character designs are really endearing to me, I could even stand Hell Boy 2 because of it. The latters cinematography and dialogue is great.
I love Planet Terror, a Roberto Rodriguez film, he should do more spoof films. If the Coen Brothers' films are all as good as No Country for Old Men, then they are great directors also.
well if you include both parts of kill bill and deathproof
I know his mum.
Shane Meadows, David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick. Especially Kubrick.
He has only ever done one good film (Dead Man's Shoes)!
Best directors of all time.
on the basis that I believe Coppola went insane at some point during in the eighties.
I'm sure he made Godfather III for similar reasons.
What's wrong with him deviating from his usual course and engaging in the production of some perfectly respectable family fare?
I don't undertstand why people slag off directors who try there hand at something different.
I respect experimentation. It's just that I feel he was punching well below his weight with 'Jack.' If it'd have been a better film I wouldn't be bitching.
He tried something. And, in some peoples eyes, it didn't pay off.
I just didn't think Jack was as funny as it could/should have been. Comedy ain't really Coppola's forte. I respect the trying, tough.
to extreme nerd levels. i have a hallowed david lynch section of my dvd collection. and i own Hotel Room (not often seen TV movie, split into 3 episodes taking place in the same hotel room decades apart. 2 were directed by Lynch. the last part, starring Crispin Glover and that red haired woman who played Cybil Sheppard's daughter in Cybil, set during a power cut where it's all dark and shadowy and based on the dialogue, is imho one of the best things he's done).
incidentally, we're gonna do a screening of Hotel Room next month, it's awesome. though i'm wondering how well half an hour of really dark screen and pauses and meaningful dialogue will go down in bardens boudoir...we'll see...

I think i'd adore anything these guys ever shat out
but DiS won't let me message you. specifically for some reason. i doubt if you've blocked me since we've exchanged all of one message and i was responding to your film night queries. anyway, if you read this, go to www.myspace.com/thepicturesnight and there's a contact e-mail on there for me, which presumably won't give me an error message every time i try and reply. in summary though, help is always welcome.

it might well be Godfrey Ho, slightly embarassingly. if you're not familiar he used to make very very bad films by shooting about 15 minutes of white guys dressed up in brightly coloured ninja costumes and editing it into some old Thai film that no one would ever watch otherwise. i went on a bit of a Ho kick a couple of years ago and downloaded loads of them (or in some cases purchased them from pound shops/garages/markets/etc) and watched them while intoxicated, and seeing as he made about 1,000,000 i've seen quite a few.
Started to get really into Francois Truffant, Shane Meadows, Hal Hartley and Larry Clark (got a few films by each lined up to watch over the next few evenings in).
Kubrick, Tarantino, Lynch, Scorsese, von Trier, Leone, De Palma and Hitchcock.
