Top 10 Directors

Recommended Posts

Pokey!    101
Also' date=' does the fact that Cameron stole plots from others ( without giving credit) for both Terminator and Avatar affect his standing for those that rate him top ten?[/quote']

That's a dumb reason to not put him in the top ten.

The fact that Avatar was ass is a good reason to dock him some points though. T1 was still good and T2 and Titanic are excellent though, so yeah.

This topic just shows me how many great directors I've missed out on. I guess I'll have to Netflix whatever I can.

Dango    824
Coppola
Alfred Hitchcock
Tarantino
Scorsese
Sam Mendes (that is pure personal Bias Right there I am sure he won't make anyone else's list)
David Fincher (probably bias because he is in my genre, This is the most debatable for me on this list as I want Kubrick, and a few others)
Aronofsky (this guy is my hero, him, Miyazaki, and Kurosawa are what made me want to go to film school)
Truffaut (400 blows on, he is a master)
Akira Kurosawa (even if he had just made 7 Samurai's he would be up in my top 20)
Hayao Miyazaki (He is just a master at what he does, and no animation director past present future will be able to compete with him imo)

No order.

Ran is a damn good film, I still hold fast that Kurosawa's best film is Rashomon, but that could just be because it was the first film I had ever seen by him, and although it is dated and full of Japanese Cliche's (which Kurosawa largely help create) I love every moment of that film.

Rashomon is still one of the best films of all time.

I honestly feel like Stanley Kubrick is on the level of Plato philosophically.

Not a fair comparison, creator ≠ communicator among other reasons.

Also as much as I love Kubrick and 2001 (my favorite film of all time) lots of other filmmakers broader works were much more philosophically inclined (Bresson, Tarkovsky, Tarr, etc.).

Yeah he wasn't nominated for anything big this year which is awful. I'm just glad Haneke was recognized by the Academy.
