Who is your favorite living director?
And your favorite film they worked on.
Martin Scorsese is of course brilliant - "Taxi Driver" is an American masterpiece, "King Of Comedy" is a favorite, and I really loved his "Hugo".
Terry Gilliam's "Brazil" is easily in my top 10, perhaps top 5, and I love his "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen"
But, I might name Walter Hill as my favorite living director. An auteur in a very compelling manner. His 1st film, "Hard Times" is stunningly good for a first time director and for the general theme . . . the very opening scene with Charles Bronson viewing the next town he's going to give a try as it passes before and he jumps from the boxcar is haunting, and you don't even know his story yet. He's the only filmmaker I know of who's done a film on American Blues music, "Crossroads", and has really gotten it right. And 'The Warriors" is a contemporary classic - suspense and action at a perfect pace, otherworldly New York city street gangs trying to kill each other, and yet, it's beautiful to look at.
James Cameron - his films are both well-made and entertaining. My all-time favorite film is Titanic which is directed by this intelligent Oscar winning director. I also enjoyed watching his other films such as The Terminator 2, True Lies, Alien 2 and Avatar.
I have a lot of respect for Christopher Nolan. Everyone knows him for the Batman movies and Inception, which are great movies. But he's also done Momento, Insomnia, The Prestige and Following. His movies are intriguing, intelligent, and dark. I hope to see more of him in the next several years.
Undoubtedly the best, his movies were the best as actor including the Good the bad and the ugly *(In IMDB TOP250 since long)
And his directed movies have already achieved acclaim

What will make a film director better? # of films s/he made on books, or # of books written on filmsA good film indeed gives a lot of work in the aftermath. Books on making, inclusion in top films... So on and so forth....

The James Cameron film. Just wondering what everyone's take on the hype around it is thus far?Personally, I find Cameron to be vastly overrated as a director; with Terminator and Aliens being the only REALLY good films...
