I love PTA. Missed a Q&A with him last year. PDL is a masterpiece.

Re: Favourite film directors?

Nolan easily. He made some fantastic movies.

Kubrick, Spielberg, Coppola and David Fincher too.

Re: Favourite film directors?

Eh, I find Nolan mediocre. He may be your favourite director, but does he deserve to be ranked alongside Chaplin, Bunuel, Tarkovsky, Lynch, Kubrick, Welles, Scorsese, Kurosawa, Ozu, Wilder, or Keaton? Hell no.

Fincher is probably my favourite

And that is exactly what you asked.

Anyway, he ranks among the greatest of all time. Look at the movies he did :

-The Prestige
-The Dark Knight
-The Dark Knight Rises
-Memento
-Inception
-Insomina
-Following

The last 2 maybe not quite at the same level as the others, and Memento is one of the greatest movies of all time. Seriously under-rated.

Memento is not underrated.

Re: Favourite film directors?

1. His Royal Majesty Ingmar Bergman
2. His Highness Stanley Kubrick
3. Others, in no particular order: Packinpah, Polanski, Tarkovski, Fosse, Cassavetes, Lynch, Coen brothers, Scorsese, Visconti, Stone, Ridley Scott, hmmm I must have omitted someone important to me, but these guys first came to mind.

Guy Ritchie obviously. Every real man should watch Lock Stock,Snatch, Revolver and Rocknrolla at least once a month.

haha, it's spooky, we must have been separated at birth.

i used the "if I was on an island, which directors would I have thingy,"

in order:

1) Bergman

Currently have 23 of his movies in my library. How many directors can make that many good movies with no duds? In the beginning…there was Ingmar Bergman.

Deserves double space before the rest…




2) Kubrick

“Gentlemen, please! There is no fighting in the war room!” All fans know what I’m talking about. No need to mention 2001. Can’t improve on perfection.

3) Lynch

From Twin Peaks to Mulholland Drive, he’s shown us what lies behind the freshly painted, white picket fences. A suburban man’s “Apocalypse Now.”

4) Coen Brothers

A welcome comedic relief. These bros tend to focus on people’s quirks. Plots are secondary; whether it’s the excessive friendliness of people in Fargo, or the southern sensibilities of people living in the southern USA, in “Oh brother where art thou?”

5) Scorcese

The master of the modern anti-hero, whether it’s vigilante Travis Bickle or Patriot Bill “the butcher.” We are both angels and demons.

6) Quentin Tarantino

No one does character development and dialogue like QT, no one (well, maybe Bergman). If you like witty dialogue, check his work out.


Other notable mentions: Coppola, Krzysztof Kieślowski !, Hilcoat, Billy Wilder, Leone, Peter Jackson (master of epic storytelling), Spielberg, De Palma, Herzog

Novak Djokovic nº1!
The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015 * Indian Wells * Miami

John Moore
Neveldine-Taylor
Olivier Megaton
Pierre Morel
Wes Anderson
Paul W. S. Anderson

What's your favourite Bergman film?


BTW, to the poster above me - please tell you are meaning Paul Thomas Anderson and not Paul W.S Anderson?!

The emergence of Nick Kyrgios is upon us.

His work on batman wasn't too bad, but the fact that he worked on inception for 10 years is comical. What pretentious and boring drivel that movie is. I laugh when I see it in my friend's bluray collection.
