Favorite Filmmakers (55 person items)

" There's something which you should get out from an actor, something which is under his skin, something which he himself maybe doesn't know exactly. I hate - and I never did - to show an actor how to play a role. I don't want to have twenty-five little Fritz Lang's running around. I have too much respect for an actor. - Fritz Lang (Directing the Film, 1976) Incomplete Filmography (no pictures)"

" Express Yourself is considered Madonna's greatest video of the 1980s. It is also a COMPLETE RIP OFF of Fritz Lang's "Metropolis". If Lady Gaga did a similar video using an old Hollywood film the press, Madonna fans and Camille Paglia would flip out. Here are two videos and an essay detailing the plagiarism: http://madonnarevelations.blogspot.com/2008/09/aint-no-big-deal-to-steal-metropolis.html"
