GOAT MOVIE DIRECTORS?

Has to be Tarkovsky + Kurosawa Not much in common stylistically, but both are gods of the golden age. They also respected each other a lot obviously.

he's amazing. he's "ehh ok" when talking about GOATs. Like, if someone said Olofmeister is a GOAT of csgo you'd be like "ehh maybe?" cuz he wouldn't be a first pick.

well millions would make a differ... I mean its cool that u think these unknown gems of directors like Tarkovsky, Kurosawa, Kubrick and so on are good, but the fact is that barely anyone knows who they are and what they have made... so they cant truly be the GOATS of film directing... People like Spielberg, Scorsese, Tarantino, Nolan and so on those are the international GOATS...

Tarkovsky and Kurosawa are certainly not "mainstream" per se but they are definitely well known. Kubrick is very, very well known.

Yeah well Kubrick hasnt made a movie since 1990... so he is kinda irrelevent at this point... But btw David Fincher is hella underrated

Akira Kurosawa Terrence Malick David Lynch Got any recommendations for Tarkovsky? I've heard he's great but haven't seen any of his movies
2021-05-10 11:50

Since you like Kurosawa, start with Solaris. As Kurosawa puts it : "I saw this film late at night in a preview room in Moscow for the first time, and soon I felt my heart aching in agony with a longing to returning to the earth as quickly as possible. Marvellous progress in science we have been enjoying, but where will it lead humanity after all? Sheer fearful emotion this film succeeds in conjuring up in our soul. Without it, a science fiction movie would be nothing more than a petty fancy."

I guess it depends on the viewer/critic. I agree that they are substantially overrated by today's standards but in that regard also remain timeless classics. Noir didn't really age very well, so only certain movie critics or generally older movie fans will enjoy the days of 20's-50's films... 60's/70's aged a little better.

Bong Jong-hoo is actually pretty good, after his succes with Parasite I searched and watched other movies directed by him and they're all good, he was there all the time but under the radar
2021-05-10 13:42
out of the directors who arent already "god-tier" like hitchcock, i'd say david fincher. the angles and shots he uses are very interesting
