Steven Suptic lul
My fav is David Fincher and yea there is no GOAT director.
Paul thomas anderson, its not even close
Christopher Nolan def nr. 1
Including Ingmar Bergman, but leaving out Quentin Tarantino? Big no-no
i love his films
In Hollywood, my favorite director alive is William Friedkin, tho he is really old by now. Paul Thomas Anderson is the most talented director to rise after the 90’s, even tho he is now retired.
My all time favorite Hollywood director is surely John Ford.
Michael Bay XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
not a single mention of Stanley Kubrick. wtf hltv
Not for Spiderman, but for Evil Dead trilogy. Evil Dead 2 is a masterpiece which deserves a mountain named after it. Absurd horror comedy at it's very best with minimal funding. The genre is very similar to Braindead by Peter Jackson.
Quentin Tarantino for being able to revive otherwise completely dead careers (John Travolta and others) and for being the one to introduce unrelated to plot, but strong character building dialogues. ("Royale with cheese", anyone?)
Worthy danish mention: Anders Thomas Jensen, who made several social realistic absurd comedies (ok last one isn't that realistic in the end, but still :D)
The Green Butchers
Men & Chicken.
If you ever want to watch a Danish movie, watch these, Flickering Lights being the best of them all, a true masterpiece and probably my favorite movie of all time.
Basically I love anyone who can create absurd comedies, a genre which is very hard to do right.
Francis Ford Coppola
Kubrick? Spielberg? Tarantino?
For me even Robert Redford since one of his movies is my absolute favorite and imo he never made a wrong step
lul hope i don´t get banned for this ^^
I know he hasnt made many films, but martin mcdonagh is a an absolute god. Definitely worthy of a mention for In Bruges, Three Billboards, etc.
Lars Von Trier
Powell & Pressburger
No subtlety, no character depth.
No, he went downhill after the 90s, there are many superior american directors
easily top 10, maybe top 3
No, braindead and LOTR are his only good films
Top 5 for me:
Alfred Hitchcock( Rear window, Vertigo)
Akiro Kurasawa(Steven samurai, Rashomon)
Andrie Tarkovski( The Mirror, Solaris)
Stanley Kubrick( Dr. Strangelove, Barry Lyndon, Full metal jacket)
Steven Spielberg( Schindler's list, Saving Private Ryan)
Martin Scorsese( Goodfellas, The Departed)
Quentin Tarantino( Reservoir dogs, Inglorious basterds)
Francis ford coppola( The Godfather series, Appcalypse now)
Coen brothers( Fargo, The Big lebowski)
Roman Polanski( Rosemary's baby, Chinatown)
David Lynch( Eraserhead, Lost Highway, Mulhholland dr )
Stanley Kubrick is boring af, i can barely finish watching any of his movies
quentin tarantella or w/e his name is
