Very good concept!


suggestions :

- "The war zone" by Tim Roth (very good)
- "Nil by mouth" by Gary Oldman (very good)
- "The lost city" by Andy Garcia (not seen)
- "City of Ghosts" by Matt Dillon (not seen)

Posted: 7 years ago at Dec 10 20:43
Thanks a lot for the two "very goods" suggestions, johan :)
Posted: 6 years, 12 months ago at Dec 21 11:36
No problem.

Other suggestions :

Nicolas Cage has directed "Sonny" but I don't know if it is any good.

Kevin Bacon has directed "Loverboy" and it's not bad.
Posted: 6 years, 12 months ago at Dec 21 14:22
Thank you very much, johan, but I only interested in those films with a score about 7 or higher on IMDb. It is important that there is reasonable doubt that these people do not return to directed in the future ...
Very grateful ;)
Edit: 6 years, 12 months ago
Posted: 6 years, 11 months ago at Jan 5 9:53
No problem! I keep looking for other possible entries
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Jan 31 11:14
and what about Zach Braff with "Garden State" ?
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Jan 31 11:44
Although Zach Braff is too many young and is more than possible to direct new films, I add to the list. Thank you very much, my friend :)
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Feb 1 13:13
Yes !

Other suggestion : Drew Barrymore with "Whip it" ? I haven't seen it but the critics were pretty good. What do you think ?
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Feb 10 8:06
I found 2 new ones!

Shane Black with "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang". it's really a cult classic and should be on this list.

Tommy Lee Jones with "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada". He has directed also 2 TV movies. Do you count them as well ?
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Feb 10 9:30
I haven't seen "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" but I accept your suggestion. "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada" is a great movie. Many thanks, Johan.
Anyway, I prefer to add to those who no longer have the opportunity to direct films :P
So, I didn't include Drew Barrymore on the list ... is almost a child! :D
Thank you very much again, my friend ;)
Posted: 6 years, 9 months ago at Mar 6 12:33
No problem!
Posted: 6 years, 9 months ago at Mar 24 14:59
I'm surprised Tommy Lee Jones hasn't done any more directing since then. As for Drew Barrymore, she will probably get a second movie soon, so she shouldn't really qualify for this list. There are lots of directors who have made one movie and they have several more coming up (Duncan Jones, Gareth Edwards etc).
Posted: 6 years, 9 months ago at Mar 24 15:16
You're right Film Ninja. So I don't want to rush and add youth directors or high chance of returning to film in the future... Many thanks for the votes my friend :)
Posted: 6 years, 7 months ago at Apr 30 14:57
other suggestions :

- Keeping the faith (2000) by Edward Norton.
- The Brave by Johnny Depp

very good list....
did u watched all these movies??
Posted: 6 years, 7 months ago at May 1 11:02
I have only seen the movies rated, but I have references that they all deserve to be seen. Thanks for your comment, pavankumar :)
Posted: 6 years, 7 months ago at May 13 12:47
Nice list :)
Posted: 6 years, 7 months ago at May 16 17:33
Kevin Spacey also has only one movie directed. Probably not a masterpiece but still a decent film.
Posted: 6 years, 7 months ago at May 23 14:09
@Rocconeverdies, it is actually not true. Kevin Spacey has directed 2 movies : Beyond the sea (2004) and Albino Alligator (1996)
Edit: 6 years, 7 months ago
Posted: 6 years, 5 months ago at Jun 28 13:28
New suggestion!

- 'Les nuits fauves' by Cyril Collard. This is a must!
Posted: 6 years, 3 months ago at Aug 27 18:17
Great list,i suppose you mean Keeping the Faith in Edward Norton.I don't believe that he deserves a place here.
Posted: 6 years, 3 months ago at Aug 27 18:41
You should watch "Limite", the only film directed by Mario Peixoto. This movie is an unknown and underrated masterpiece. Even in Brazil it's only known and appreciated by critics and cinephiles.
Posted: 6 years, 3 months ago at Aug 27 19:37
You're right, my friend. "Limite" is a very interesting avant-garde film, which had escaped me ... Thank you very much for the suggestion to include right now. :)
Posted: 6 years, 3 months ago at Aug 27 20:02
Many thanks for the vote and suggestion, vitoc. I had already forgotten Edward Norton ...I should have him in quarantine xD
Posted: 6 years, 3 months ago at Aug 27 20:07
Another forgotten. Thaks so much for "Les Nuits Fauves" also included in this list, johan. :)
Posted: 6 years, 3 months ago at Aug 28 17:42
I hadn't thought about it, but it is unusual to directed shorts before a feature film for such directors may be called "casual".
In any case, would account only feature, obviating any possible short...
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at May 8 7:09
New suggestion :

- A single man (2009) by Tom Ford

By the way, Shane Black is directing his 2nd feature right now (Iron Man 3) so maybe you should remove him.
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at May 8 8:07
Thanks Johan, but Tom Ford is still young and he can make new movies, as in the same case of Shane Black. Thank you very much for both informations :)
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at May 11 3:10
Nice list,It's a shame Charles Laughton never directed a second film.
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at May 11 8:03
In the case of Laughton we have the consolation of thinking that would be almost impossible to film another title got as interesting as "The Night of the Hunter". Thanks for your comment, incrediblejeff :)
Posted: 5 years, 4 months ago at Aug 6 4:46
I was going to make a list like this some time ago but then I noticed you did it before me. It doesn't matter though, in any way, it's great to have this kind of list here. Here's a few suggestions!

Films with over 7.0 in IMDB:
The Apartment (Gilles Mimouni, 1996) - the director has made one directorial effort after this, in 2011, for TV.
Whisper of the Heart (Yoshifumi Kondo, 1995) - Kondo was meant to be the follower of the great Hayao Miyazaki but died soon after the completion of this masterpiece.
Carnival of Souls (Herk Harvey, 1962) - A cult horror film.
Home at Seven (Ralph Richardson, 1952) - One of the most respected theater and movie actors directed only one film.

Films with not over 7.0 in IMDB, yet, maybe, interesting to add:

Kinski Paganini (Klaus Kinski, 1989) - the only film of the egomaniac cult actor Kinski.
Maximum Overdrive (Stephen King, 1986) - King has said that he will never again film another movie.
Arthur (Steve Gordon, 1981) - A hugely popular movie which was the only film of Steve Gordon, who died a year after the success.
Kotch (Jack Lemmon, 1971) - The only film directed by Jack Lemmon.
Short Cut to Hell (James Cagney, 1957) - James Cagney's only directorial effort.
Posted: 5 years, 4 months ago at Aug 6 6:27
A very nice list. There are some very good movies here. It makes you wonder what would have happened had they had the oppertunity to direct more movies. Especially Marlon Brando and Charles Laughton.
Posted: 5 years, 4 months ago at Aug 6 14:37
I deeply appreciate your suggestions, Lamourderer. Some data are news for me and all are very interesting, even curious. I'm sorry for removed your idea for a similar list, but this can be largely considered as well as yours, thanks to your suggestions and your generosity. Thank you very much :)
Posted: 4 years, 11 months ago at Jan 14 1:41
Great job, I made a similar list myself : http://www.listal.com/list/actors-that-directed/rearrange
Posted: 4 years, 11 months ago at Jan 14 2:03
How about Mark Hanlon for "Buddy Boy" (1999.) I have actually written to him, he is very nice and has not received nearly enough attention.
Posted: 4 years, 8 months ago at Apr 12 22:14
How about "Buddy Boy" by Mark Hanlon. One of my favorites, and the movie that introduced me to Aidan Gillen. I saw it with my dad recently, and he said it was self-indulgent crap. Huh. There's no accounting for taste.
Posted: 4 years, 8 months ago at Apr 12 22:15
Sorry for the double post.
Posted: 4 years, 3 months ago at Aug 28 7:27
Sometimes you have to rely on parents... :D
Many thanks for your suggestion, moviebuff15
Posted: 4 years ago at Nov 19 14:18
You're right hal9000... I had missed this interesting title. Many thanks for the suggestion and comment :)
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at May 14 17:20
You should definitely add 'Searching for Sugar man'. It is an amazing documentary which won the best documentary Oscar. Its first time director Malik Bendjelloul just died tragically and will obviously never make another movie.

By the way, same thing concerning 'Jack goes boating', it will remain forever Philip
Seymour Hoffman only directing credit.

Finally, I think you should remove both 'Garden State' and 'The three burials of Melquiades Estrada' as Zach Graff and Tommy Lee Jones will release a new movie this year.

And I still think you should add 'A single man' as Tom Ford won't direct another movie any time soon.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at May 14 17:35
Tommy Lee Jones premiered his second film at Cannes this week: The Homesman

http://www.listal.com/movie/the-homesman
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at May 15 7:49
The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada found it quite good. Be seen his second film as director. Thank you very much for giving me notice, brawljeff, now exclude it from the list... :)
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at May 15 8:23
How are you friend Johan? I appreciate that you take so much interest you with this list. I will follow all your advice. You're the best chronicler of film I know nowadays. Many thanks for everything. I run to rectify and add as appropriate :D
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Jul 1 15:31
A year before Ghostbusters was released, Rick Moranis was one of the directors for a comedy called Strange Brew.
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at Jan 18 8:42
I like this list, but I doubt some of them made more 1 movie, but just not appear on IMDB, there're many international titles that not included on IMDB.
