OK thank you :kissing_heart::heart_eyes::crazy_face:

Can’t wait for all the arguments before and after we eventually crown Paul Thomas Anderson No 1

I like films but I often don’t know, or care who the director is. Same with actors. Don’t give a shit who they are or what else they’re in.

This thread probably isn’t for me.

What an enjoyable thread idea which I will love to participate in but with a degree of apprehension about the inevitable dreadful lack of diversity in its findings.

Cool sent, be shocked if the top 3 aren’t Kurosawa, Kubrick, Hitchcock. :slightly_smiling_face:

I’m bad at ranking

Who directed Home Alone, Die Hard and Jurassic Park?

Michael Haneke

(in a way, he has done his own Home Alone)

Chris Columbus, John McTiernan, Steven Spielberg

does the director write the film or just say “I want it shot like this, stand over there!”? seems like they definitely get an inflated credit and sense of worth if it’s the latter

I don’t know who that is.
