  • Alexander Payne, who directed "About Schmidt", "Sideways", and "Election". The first two I loved because not a sentence was spoken unneccesarily as every sequence gave you another subtle glimpse of the characters' problems. However, "Election" wasn't deep at all; it was just a great comedy with a great story.
  • I'm a big fan of Jim Jarmusch, and Tim Burton. My favourite Jim Jarmusch picture is probably this one he came out with few years back, called 'Ciggaretts and Coffee.' And my favourite Tim Burton film is the eternaly awesome, Nightmare Before Christmas.
  • Wes Anderson I just love the look and feel of his films, the attention to deatil in all the shots is fantastic. The scripts are smart and darkly funny, and the casting is always spot on. He really has three films that are must see; Rushmore Royal Tenenbahms Life Aquatic If I had to pick, Rushmore..
  • Peter Jackson. Loved the Lord of the Ring movies.
  • David Fincher-"Fight Club" Or Darren Aronofsky-"Requiem for a Dream"
  • Martin Scorsese and Ridley Scott would be two of the many I really like. Scorsese knocks together a great story with really strong characters-Taxi driver, Good fellas, The King of Comedy!! Ridley Scott is the master of "cool" His movies are never "Cheesy" The texture and authenticity he obsesses over in his movies always make them a trip to watch! Blade Runner, Gladiator etc etc
  • tim burton. nightmare before christmas, the corpse bride. edward scisserhands.
  • 1. christopher nolan: memento, the prestige, following, batman begins.
  • Mel Gibson-Apocalypto.
  • I don't have a single favorite, but John Frankenheimer ranks pretty high for me. I enjoy directors who insist on realism in composing a picture.
  • Michael Haneke -- not a single movie I haven't been really impressed with. I can't say "like" because I'm unsure if one "likes" his movies: Funny Games [ I've only seen the original; not the recent American remake ] Cache Benny's Video 71 Fragments On a Chronology of Chance The Seventh Continent Time of the Wolf
  • John Waters, mostly before Hairspray: Female Trouble, Pink Flamingo's, Multiple Maniacs, Mondo Trasho. David Lynch: Eraserhead (though once was enough), Mulholland Drive, Blue Velvet, The Elephant Man. I still want to see some interesting ones. Takashi Miike: Visitor Q, Gozu, Rainy Dog, Blues harp, Ichi the Killer, Bird People in China Chan-wook Park: Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr Vengeance. Quentin Tarantino: About everything. :) Robert Rodriguez: Sin City, El Mariachi, Desperado, From Dusk till Dawn Other favorite directors that come to mind (there are too many I like): Hitchcock, Wes Craven, Roman Polanski (for instance Rosemary's Baby, Repulsion, the Tenant), Emir Kusturica, and I really forget some very good ones now.
  • Ridley Scott Blade Runner Alien Black Rain Thelma and Louise Black Hawk Down Gladiator Et al His movies have "atmosphere".
  • scorsese .goodfellas
  • Ridley Scott. Everything he does is cinematically beautiful. His most famous ones being Bladerunner, Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, and the series Numbers.
