I don't have a favorite, but David Fincher came to mind. Seven and Fight Club are two of my favorites.

Mmm... Spielberg I suppose.

If I were to like take movies I love and categorize them by director he'd have the most I would wager.

Malick. His movies effect me far more than any other director.

Those last two are blasts from the past and I'm going to throw out another name for you old time film fans, Preston Sturges.

He's not too well known, but he made about 7 comedies in a run that will stand up with any ever made.

The Coen Brothers are gigantic fans of his. The Hudsucker Proxies is their attempt at a Preston Sturges movie and Oh, Brother Where Art Thou is literally taken from one of his movies.

And a producer can be a creative force on a film, anyone whose worked in films knows the auteur theory only applies to a very small number of directors.




can= rarely

im not even talking about auteur theory. if a film is of quality it is generally because the director was the driving force behind it, film form neccesitates that. film making by comitee/studio manufactured cinema is the only place that producers have a strong influence and its generally negative. having said that, i firmly believe that film is collaborative. i think alot of the time people missunderstand auteur theory and think it rejects collaboration.

hmm, that sounds a bit contradictory...

Does he have to also be a writer? If not, I'd say Hitchcock is my straight up favorite director, but for director/writer, then I'd say Kurosawa and Chaplin.

I like PT Anderson, David Fincher, Aronofsky, Del Toro, Nolan, Tarantino, Cronenburg.

Art is too versatile to have a singular favorite, we aren't talking basketball players here

Guess Aronofksy would probably my favorite. Cronenberg,Scorsese, Fincher would all be up there as well.

Tony Kaye is another dude I really like but hasn't really done enough. He had all that drama with American History X that probably really hurt his career. Just watched Detachment which was an awesome movie and American History X is one of my All-Time favorites. Had another movie in production that I'll look forward to seeing.
