Directors kill me, no kidding. And its not just I'm an aspiring director or anything. Its in the way some of them convey these out-of-the-world experience thru visuals, and how they just blow you away with this artistic craft of scenery. I'm sorry, but honest to God, I don't have a favorite director. There're just so many good ones: Martin Scorcese, Francis Ford Copolla, Quentin Tarantino, Guy Ritchie, Stephen Spielberg, Brian De Palma, Matthew Vaughn, Zack Snyder, Frank Miller, Robert Rodriguez, Ethan & Joel Coen, Andy & Larry Wachowski, Tony and Ridley Scott, Tim Burton, Robert Zemeckis, and many others. I know I've mentioned a lot of the important guys, but you could still name any of them and please state your reason, maybe reference a movie he or she directed. Greetings.
By far my favorite director is mel Gibson. My reasoning is that Gibson directed the Greatest movie the movie industrie has ever seen since it began. that is he directed the Passion of Christ.
I also have a favorite band, that Illuminandi it is a, Catholic/Gothic/heavy metal, band. If you dont believe me visit my hub, <snipped - do not post links to your own hubs in the forums> .
M. Night Shyamalan, hands down my favs of his included Lady in the Water, Signs, The Village and of course The Sixth Sense.
Got to be Scorcese, fierycj. Because it's all there--story, visuals, dialogue, sense of flow, strength, the dark New York streets thing--but also a sense of period and a light touch depending on the written source. He is an auteur, but this doesn't overwhelm his movies when it shouldn't, unlike some others.
How you can talk about Scorcese and Quentin Tarantino in the same paragraph, however, is beyond me! Bleh! I hated it, I hated it, I hated it--and I still hate his seminal 'masterpiece.' Anybody remember what that might be by now? Maybe? Well, my point exactly, .
oh c'mon Lita, don't hate Q so much. I admit his not too adept at depicting reality in his films, but you gotta give the guy ten points for breaking all the rules known to conventional directing and story-telling. It always kills me whenever a director is not too scared to break some rules. Cos, frankly, as an aspiring director, I have quite a few to break myself. Lol.
Hey--It's cool to break the rules (most artists do some way or another), but it's the attention-getting whore mongering (excuse me--but that is what it is) that always bothers me. He's on par with Jeff Koons, I'd say, in the visual world.
And OK--credit for breaking rules. But I think that's where it ends! I wouldn't call him a 'great' director.
Scorcese gets my vote - loved the Gangs of New York!!!
OH! And the Coen Bros are brilliant purveyors of satire and dark comedy--they have my sense of humor down pat!
Hi Fiery and Lita
I would have to say Kevin Smith - director of films such as Clerks, Mallrats and the excellent Dogma. He is an inspiration to independent film-makers everywhere, showing what can be done with an idea, a little creativity and no money!
Peter Watkins is another one that I like - a good leftfield director, not afraid of breaking rules
Ah, yes, Sufi. 'Clerks.' lol And having no money is often the greatest seed for creativity. Literally, that's why studios aren't paying big fat name actors who act like retarded spoiled brats--like Tom Cruise--like they used to. They're on to the fact (oh, finally), that star-making does not an excellent movie or movie goers with $$ make!
They ALL learned (stole) from Kubrick. I can't believe no one's mentioned him. And Kurosawa.
I've always been a fan of Rod Howard. Maybe its because I watched him grow up but from Splash to Angels and Demons, I don't think he's made a bad movie. Besides he gets he mom, dad, and bother parts.
It's gotta be Scorsese, I mean think of what he's done: Gangs of New York, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, Cape Fear, Casino, The Aviator, The Departed
My other personal favorties are Clint Eastwood and Guy Ritchie
Sam Raimi. How could I forget that guy. Evil Dead still kills me.
Oh and for directors : Alfred Hitchcock, obvious
Billy Wilder, some of his movies, aww man
Steven Spielberg, obvious again
Tim Burton, so amazing
M. Night Shyamalan and Kevin Smith are my favorites for very different reasons

Who is your favourite film director?
by William Thomas 5 years ago
Film noir refers to movies of, say, the 30s, 40s, 50s, and perhaps early 60s (perhaps) of the black and white era (glorious black and white). These films were rugged and gritty crime stories. Maltese Falcon (Humprhey Bogart) is one of the most obvious and easiest examples. Most Bogart movies...
