    Question Favourite Director

    So who's your favourite director of all time? Or at least in your top 3?

    Re: Favourite Director

    Charlie Kaufman and Quentin Tarantino are both brilliant and my favourites. I haven't checked out enough of the more 'classic' directors to make a judgement on whether they're the best or not. Scorsese's great. Out of the recent/more mainstream directors, Fincher, Nolan, Aronofsky are consistently good. Paul Thomas Anderson's been doing some interesting stuff lately -- still gotta check out The Master. I despised Magnolia but loved There Will Be Blood.

    I have massive respect for Larry Clark for just doing his thing, even when everyone calls him a filthy pedo. Bully (2001) is still one of the most intense and gritty films I've ever seen.

    I hope you're trolling. Otherwise I mourn for your soul.

    Read his plays. He's a better writer than director.

    Re: Favourite Director

    Personally love the work of Christopher Nolan. His Batman movies were amazing. Would love to see him do a James Bond film!

    I don't have an exclusively favourite director, but top 3... Christopher Nolan, Orson Welles and Ridley Scott probably.
