Re: Favourite film directors?

Wow, given the level of discussion on this forum, I was expecting a Cameron, Spielberg, Burton and Bay lovefest. I'm happy to see that many posters actually have great taste, imo.

My favourites, in no particular order: Kubrick, Kurosawa and Chan-wook Park. Park surely isn't as great as the others, but I think, given time, he will be right up there.

Honorable mentions: Coen Bros., Coppola, Joon-ho Bong, Scorcese, Leone, Bergman and Hitchcock.

My question is; if MTF is such a gathering of intellectual elites, why doesn't some of it show in GM?

Indeed it is. it's probably one of my favorites because it deals with my favorite subject in art: identity.

It's like staring at the mirror, it can be a scary experience if you watch long enough.

Persona is a deeply personal film according to Bergman himself and it can be felt. First time I watched it I was wtf...what is THAT? It takes several viewings and special mood for me to appreciate it

The movies you like are great and more accessible, also full of Bergman's memorable scenes They deserve a separate thread...

Special mention goes to Wild Strawberries, the first Bergman film I saw when I was much younger, it changed my thinking about film in general and made me realize Bergman's greatness even when I was that young (I had seen The 7th Seal prior to that though, but this one was the first to make me dizzy Bergman-style, The 7th Seal is of course a great film as well.)

I took me some time to find some of the more rare Bergman movies, now I have seen most of his works, some were even grabbed from swedish tv, because I had no other possibilities.

I will count the number of the Bergman movies I have on DVD or downloaded and will report it here, maybe I can help if someone had troubles finding a rare Bergman gem.

He's pretty great visually, stories are maybe in poor taste.

Re: Favourite film directors?

Ok, it is not really my favorite director but it is the coolest out there:

Takashi Miike!

Go watch Visitor Q now! And then The Happiness of the Katakuris and then Ichi the killer and then marvel that he did all those 3 films in the same year!
