Vertigo (1958)
Alfred Hitchcock
Always make the audience suffer as much as possible.


Over a career spanning more than half a century, Hitchcock fashioned for himself a distinctive and recognisable directorial style. He pioneered the use of a camera made to move in a way that mimics a person's gaze, forcing viewers to engage in a form of voyeurism. He framed shots to maximise anxiety, fear, or empathy, and used innovative film editing.

Trade Mark
___Blondes.
___Often used the "wrong man" or "mistaken identity" theme in his movies.
___Inspired the adjective "Hitchcockian" for suspense thrillers.
___Often makes the audience empathizes with the villain's plight, usually in a sequence where the villain is in danger of being caught.
___He hated to shoot on location. He preferred to shoot at the studio where he could have full control of lighting and other factors. This is why even his later films contain special effects composite and rear screen shots.
___Dark humor and dry wit, especially regarding murder.

Woody Allen
If my film makes one more person miserable, I'll feel I've done my job.


Woody Allen is an American screenwriter, director, actor, comedian, jazz musician, author, and playwright. Allen's films draw heavily on literature, sexuality, philosophy, psychology, Jewish identity, and the history of cinema.
Although his stories and style have changed over the years, he is regarded as one of the best filmmakers of our time because of his views on art and his mastery of filmmaking.

Trade Mark
___Frequently plays a neurotic New Yorker
___A lot of his movies feature at least one character who is a writer. This is often Woody himself.
___Nearly all of his films start and end with white-on-black credits, set in the Windsor typeface, set to jazz music, without any scrolling.
___Films his dialog using long, medium-range shots instead of the typical intercut close-ups.
___His films often include opening Narration or the protagonist talking directly to the audience
___References to famous writers and literary classics
___References to classic Films, particularly the works of Ingmar Bergman

Wim Wenders
I've turned from an imagemaker into a storyteller. Only a story can give meaning and a moral to an image.


Wenders was born in German and studied medicine and philosophy in Freiburg and Düsseldorf. However, he dropped out of university studies and moved to Paris in October 1966 to become a painter.
Much of the distinctive cinematography in his movies is the result of a highly productive long-term collaboration with Dutch cinematographer Robby Müller. Some of his more successful and critically acclaimed movies, Paris, Texas and Wings of Desire, for example, have been the result of fruitful collaborations with avant-garde authors Peter Handke and Sam Shepard.

Trade Mark
___Glasses with thick, dark rims.

Gus Van Sant
Abbas Kiarostami
My films have been progressing towards a certain kind of minimalism, even though it was never intended. Elements which can be eliminated have been eliminated. This was pointed out to me by somebody who referred to the paintings of Rembrandt and his use of light: some elements are highlighted while others are obscured or even pushed back into the dark. And it's something that we do - we bring out elements that we want to emphasize. I'm not claiming or denying that I have done such a thing but I do believe in [Robert] Bresson's method of creation through omission, not through addition


Abbas Kiarostami was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1940. He graduated from university with a degree in fine arts before starting work as a graphic designer. He then joined the Center for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults, where he started a film section, and this started his career as a filmmaker at the age of 30. Since then he has made many movies and has become one of the most important figures in contemporary Iranian film. He is also a major figure in the arts world, and has had numerous gallery exhibitions of his photography, short films and poetry. He is an iconic figure for what he has done, and he has achieved it all by believing in the arts and the creativity of his mind.
