Vastly Overrated (11 person items)

"Wow, I have seen most of his films and bloody hell are they nothing special. Seriously. Wild Strawberries is average at most. Also it doesn't help that Listal users have overrated all of his movies compared to IMDb rating. He is a below average director, but an excellent director at "wasting my time". King of the dreary movies, no wonder Swedes always have been suicidal. He's overrated, he's NOT the king of cinema, no one is. Just fucking accept it you dumb people, now you've pissed me off,"

Favorite Directors' Quotes (27 person items)

""I write scripts to serve as skeletons awaiting the flesh and sinew of images." "People ask what are my intentions with my films — my aims. It is a difficult and dangerous question, and I usually give an evasive answer: I try to tell the truth about the human condition, the truth as I see it. This answer seems to satisfy everyone, but it is not quite correct. I prefer to describe what I would like my aim to be. There is an old story of how the cathedral of Chartres was struck by lightning and"

"Bergman Opinions Tarkovsky My discovery of Tarkovsky's first film was like a miracle. Suddenly, I found myself standing at the door of a room the keys of which had, until then, never been given to me. It was a room I had always wanted to enter and where he was moving freely and fully at ease. I felt encouraged and stimulated: someone was expressing what I had always wanted to say without knowing how. Tarkovsky is for me the greatest, the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of "

"about Orson Welles “For me he’s just a hoax. It’s empty. It’s not interesting. It’s dead. Citizen Kane, which I have a copy of — is all the critics’ darling, always at the top of every poll taken, but I think it’s a total bore. Above all, the performances are worthless. The amount of respect that movie’s got is absolutely unbelievable.” about Jean-Luc Godard “I’ve never gotten anything out of his movies. They have felt constructed, faux intellectual, and completely dea"

Quotes About American Cinema (17 person items)

""Among today's directors I'm of course impressed by Steven Spielberg and Scorsese, and Coppola, even if he seems to have ceased making films, and Steven Soderbergh — they all have something to say, they're passionate, they have an idealistic attitude to the filmmaking process. Soderbergh's Traffic is amazing. Another great couple of examples of the strength of American cinema is American Beauty and Magnolia.""
