Who makes your favorite movies? Including a poll of some of the most famous ones.

Anyways, I do not consider myself a big movie buff, and I only go to the movies maybe twice a year, but I love just about everything I've seen by the Coen Brothers (favorites are Fargo, Raising Arizona and No Country For Old Men). There's something about the aesthetic, themes and style of their movies that really speak to me.

I like Scorsese, too, but in more of a "f*ck yeah!" sort of way, I don't really feel as much of an emotional connection to his stuff as I do the Coen Bros.

Honestly, probably Miyazaki. He's definitely the one I most consistently love.

Nolan
Aronofsky
Cuaron
Scorsee (even though I've only seen two of his films)

That isn't in any order
#16
Of that list I have to pick Spielberg.


I'd have to say Miyazaki is my favorite director, though. Almost every film he's ever made is gold.

Ozu for his framing and use of space
Coen Brothers for auteur theory
Kubrick for the technical aspects.
I love Kurosawa's staging and story telling, especially in High and Low.
Jean-Pierre Melville
Wes Anderson's use of color. Also the story book world he creates.
Lynch/Jodorowsky for surrealism.
Malick cuz nature.

Any answer that is not the Coen brothers is wrong.

This poll is lacking though; Wells, PTA, Lynch, Ford, Huston, Eastwood, Malick, Refn, Mann, Jarmusch? and on, and on.

That seems like a good order

Brad Bird, Martin Scorcese, David Russel, Nolan, and Brooks are all great too.

Right now it's probably Refn who's at the top, he pretty much guides what I do. PTA is definitely there cuz of TWBB, he and Tsai Ming-liang (who I've only seen one film from) are constantly in my head nowadays. Paradjanov is like, coloring my life, maaaan. There's a Palestinian director called Hany Abu Assad, I'm really glad he exists. Spike Lee, kind of. And Chaplin too, kind of.

Kurosawa, Dardenne Bros are my faves.
Nolan is probably the best blockbuster 'AAA' title director.

I don't get why a bunch of people have brought up Refn. He hasn't been good since 2005 and feeds off the edginess of neckbeards. (Yes, I'm aware that sounds hypocritical after naming Nolan, who does the same thing)

I don't see how either feed off the edginess of neckbeards, but then again, it's been a while since I've shaved.


Refn is a genuine joy for me to watch. Not just for the genre stuff, not just for his aesthetic, and not because he's a "**** you" type (I'm not sure he is, probably a sweetheart); much like Nolan, he sticks to the important stuff. That's really it. His films tend to be more filmic than a lot of other films.

I like Refn cuz he uses silence better than most modern directors. He isn't afraid of it and doesn't feel the need to tell you everything. He lets things happen.

This statement is so ugh.

Anyways, I like Refn. I'd probably put him up with my favorites even though there's only one film of his that I love (and I really love it) (I like everything I've seen by him though, and stylistically he's definitely near the top). I'd definitely put Wes Anderson up there. I'm poorly versed in the Coens but I like everything I've seen by them. Christopher Nolan is such a cliche answer, but I genuinely love multiple films of his; same deal with David Fincher. Richard Linklater actually might be like my second-favorite director, since I'd classify Dazed & Confused and the Before trilogy as films that I love (maybe School of Rock too). I think my favorite director is Shane Carruth, who hasn't been mentioned yet. Let's see, who else? I've only seen two Noah Baumbach films but loved them both. Maybe Edgar Wright, since Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is my all-time favorite movie and I like Shaun of the Dead and The World's End. Jordan Vogt-Roberts has only directed one movie but I love it, same with Charlie Kaufman, same with Drew Goddard, so those guys are all batting a thousand in my book. Oh, and personally, I think Tim Burton's great.
