Greed (1924)
Rath's rating:

This is a small list of some of the meanings losers in Cinema history as directors are concerned. It is those who, in short, deserved greater public attention, recognition according to their own merits.

In some cases, they suffered a real persecution either ideological or political in their countries of origin (Schorm, Trumbo, Parajanov, Sagan, Polonsky) or simply a mutilating and destructive censorship (Von Stroheim). Others have chained commercial failures (Fourastié, Rouquier, Rozier) or his estimable work has been misunderstood (Brisseau, Delvaux... Eustache!). Some have only gotten testament to a unique and very significant underestimated movie (Llobet, Loden, Lorre, Malraux). Also premature death cut short a promising career (Semon, Fourastié...) even in tragic circumstances (Lauzon, Eustache or Lévy).

A paradigm, a director would be a compendium of all the misfortunes exposed and perhaps the greatest poet of cinema: the french Jean Vigo.

Linked in alphabetical order and a picture of what is possibly his most representative film is shown.

JEAN VIGO (1905 - 1934)

As you know, at least Vigo is highly thought of for his small filmography, certainly L'Atalante places among the greatest films in international critics' polls

You're right in what you say, but Zéro de conduite had prohibited its exhibition in France until 1945 and L'Atalante vindication wouldn't begin until the late forties, many years after the untimely death of its director in both cases. It couldn't be said that Vigo had much luck in life... :_(
