It would have to be Stanley Kubrick for me.

I love him. I love his perfection. He's a genius. He is a God (my God, anyway).

I really like Mark Romanek, He's done a tone of music videos with Artists like Madonna, Linkin Park (He did faint), Michal Jackson,         Chilli Peppers (Can't Stop, I love that one), No Doubt, Jay Z etc.

He's also did the Film 1 hour photo with Robin Williams (his First major film) which blew my mind..AWESOME FILM. Write that down if you havent seen it.

Mark Romanek's Website


...What films has Stanley Kubrick done?

..Y'serious?

2001, The Shining, Spartacus, Clockwork Orange...list goes on.

That said, my favorite director is probably..hmm.  Hayao Miyazaki.

I'm not sure I have a favorite.  I tend to like Francis Ford Coppola's movies.  I also usually enjoy Ron Howard's movies as well.

Okay, to get back on topic, how about we post our favorite director, and a representative film or two--y'know, a film that you would reccommend somebody else watch had they never seen a film by this director before.  Sound good?

Sounds good, funk.

'Paths of Glory' is one of Kubrick's greatest masterpieces.

...and 2001. But I'm sure most of you have seen it already.

For Francis Ford Coppola, if you haven't seen The Godfather, skip seeing Episode 3 tonight and watch The Godfather instead.  Then watch Apocalypse Now.

'Apocalypse Now' was unbelievable in the cinema. Blew me away. I love it. And 'The Godfather' is one of my favourite film.

Another favourite director of mine is this guy called Spielberg.

I recommend you see 'Duel'.

'Duel' is great.  So simple.

As for Miyazaki, he's basically got two 'modes' as a director, and I think that watching either 'Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind', or 'Princess Mononoke' followed by 'Kiki's Delivery Service' or 'Spirited Away' could give you a good idea of what he's about.  Just about everything he's done is gold, though, so it's difficult to find a representative film.

Robert Zemeckis didn't direct 'Ghostbusters'... If I were to choose a representative film for him it would probably be 'Back to the Future'.

'1941' :lol: ...did you know Zemeckis wrote the story for that film?

I always get Reitman and Zemeckis confused, for some reason.
