Lists by CinemaNoir
I have put three stars beside the films that I think are the most influencial
David Fincher, Oliver Stone, Brian De Palma (Only for his early work), Bernardo Bertolucci, Chan wook Park, Abbas Kiarostami
I have only seen Battleship Potemkin from Eisenstein and while I think it is incredible, I want to see at least one more film from him before I decide on him. Chances are that anyone else I didn't mention I haven't seen many or any films from but I am open to suggestions. I have not seen enough from Haneke, Pasolini and many others who are highly esteemed to have them included.
I do not like Spielberg, Zemekis or anything of a similar nature and although I like Star Wars I don't think that makes Lucas a great director. James Cameron falls into the boat where I enjoy his films but don't think he's great and certainly not one of the best (just slightly above average). I'm not a fan of hollywood pictures in general
I could never sit through an Ed Wood film, but I know they are the cream of the crap
Feel free to suggest more hilarious unintentional comedies
Entourage and Rescue Me would be there, but they just ended
A work in progress atm. Leave comments for other films to suggest too.
I Saw The Devil = I really, really liked this movie, but I don't really consider it a horror, it was more along the lines of oldboy
Shaun of the Dead & Zombieland = One of My favorite satire/comedies of all time but I wouldn't call it a horror because I never felt on the edge of my seat or nervous
Pan's Labyrinth = I don't get how many say this was a horror, for me it was a fantasy/drama, that being said absolutely amazing
Filmmakers with the Most Appearances:
Coen Brothers: 3
Ford Coppola: 3
