-Terrence Malick is the best filmmaker so far IMO. His recent work is really in it's own territory. Knight of Cups is something special.

-David Fincher is just the best example of a technically air tight film constructor. Never seen something from him that wasn't extremely well constructed. Very clinical.

Sometimes the scripts he chooses seem beneath him though.

-George Lucas appeals to me personally, as I identify with him and the themes of his six films (Growing up and letting go vs. failure to do so. His first three films deal with characters being able to move on, and his last three deal with someone who can't, and who is consumed by his fear instead of overcoming it.)

He is a technically poor/uneven filmmaker, but he is like Grant Morrison for me, where his concepts excite me so much that the execution is of secondary concern. If that makes any sense.

And yes, I am aware that these men are "entry level", not euro, etc.

But unlike other boards, I would expect this place to nonetheless respect that the people i've listed have made great films (before you shout about Lucas, watch THX 1138), no matter how popular they are.

well we had an alright run. bye!



And yet you see nothing wrong with the choices in the least favorite directors thread.

It's almost like negativity goes uncontested more than positivity online.

Really makes you think.




Check pages beyond 10, we were below average in terms of quality, the director threads and a few other threads were actually good.

Why the fuck can't we sage on here, what made them change that during 2016 damn it.

>Why the fuck can't we sage on here

it works fine for me

>Check pages beyond 10, we were below average in terms of quality

yeah there are some weak threads back there. it took a while to break out of the 4chan mindset of making brief, shallow responses

anyway I don't see what's so wrong with this thread. I'm surprised no one made it before (that I remember). >>9926 disagrees with OP's picks - so make better ones. it's just a conversation starter.



Wtf I only have "Spoiler images." and "Hide country."

Mann, Verhoeven, Renoir, Lonergan.

Sokurov, Curtis, Soderbergh, Parajanov.

Kaltozov, Bergman, Zhangke, Rossellini.

Malick, Marker, Tony Scott, Kiyoshi Kurosawa.

Lynch, Aki Kaurismaki, Kitano, BdP.

HHH, Cimino, Resnais, Murnau

Fellini, Riefenstahl, Tsai Ming-liang, Pasolini.


I love To the Wonder most out of Malick's films, or Knight of Cups. Really depends of the mood I'm in.



I think I'll have to list a bunch too. I can't narrow it down to a handful of them


just type sage in the email field




That's inadequate.

Zack Snyder doesn't get enough love.

He is genuinely and unironically one of the greatest cinematic artists to have ever lived.

Just go ahead and try proving me wrong.

Pro tip: you can't



He's fucking eratic. In someways he is shallow, in others he is pushing the studio capeshit envelope.

BvS was like 2 hours of talking. That takes balls.



>It's almost like negativity goes uncontested more than positivity online.

I'm sure that's true

With directors I have a hard time listing favorites. I like so many of them that I don't know when to end the list and I'm bound to forget a few

The directors that I dislike are few in number so they stand out more




Snyder is anything but shallow. He's one of the most faithful directors to the "show, don't tell" rule I've ever seen. One thing he never resorts to is spoon-feeding the audience. He makes them actually think and engage in actively watching his films, as opposed to passively watching, like with most capeshit. The way he illustrates practically every frame with a smorgasbord of unique color suited to the mood of the film and imagery that's poignantly and tightly connected to the narrative at hand is second to none. It's a stimulus of which is absolutely unparalleled in modern cinema. I have yet to see anyone actually replicate his distinct style.

>2 hours of talking

I'm pretty happy to find this video feature on Bill Morrison. It only has 245 views! I'd never seen an interview with him, much less an exploration of his background and his work.



whoa, Decasia was intended for 3 screens at once

No man before or since has ever understood the strengths of film to his level, and the way that popular film ought to be made.
