Regizorii care mi-au mincat viata

Acum ceva timp va provocam sa va uitati inlauntrul sufletului vostru alb-negru si color si sa va ginditi care sint filmele voastre preferate.

Acum e vremea sa ne indragostim nu doar punctual, ci sistematic. Nu doar filme, ci regizori. Care sint regizorii vostri preferati?

Ai mei, de mult timp, sint astia. Inviu o lista veche de ani de zile de pe KG. Recitind-o, imi dau seama ca nu simt nevoia sa schimb o virgula la ea.


* * *

OK. It's high time to have this one too. Let's keep the format proposed by ScreaminJay - 10 nominations, from 1 to 10, no tie-ins. I also propose you to write a short justification: why do you keep that director is such a high esteem? If you feel like, pls also give some other name that didn't quite make your list, but that are close.

Here I start:

My personal best 10 directors

1. John Huston - for guts. for Asphalt Jungle. for The Man Who Whould Be King. for stamina. for everything

2. Akira Kurosawa - for the enlightenment he gave me with a bowman in the rain

3. Charles Chaplin - for humanity and laughters

4. Billy Wilder - because nobody's perfect :P

5. John Ford - for making us discover the John Wayne within us

6. Fritz Lang - from Metropolis and Nibelungen to Westerns to Film Noir

7. Federico Fellini - for making me desperate while making me laugh.

8. Sam Peckinpah - for bullet-driven angst. for Straw Dogs.

9. Woody Allen - from Annie Hall to Zelig

10. Andrei Tarkovsky - for the un-words

With would-be closes:
- Takeshi Kitano
- Stanley Kubrick
- Peter Greenaway
- Pier Paolo Pasolini
- Anthony Mann
- William Wyler
- Nicholas Ray
- Werner Herzog
- Robert Aldrich
- Fred Zinnemann
- Jules Dassin
- Pier Paolo Pasolini
- Michael Curtiz
- Leni Riefenstahl
- Bob Fosse
- Pedro Almodovar
- Howard Hawks
