THE FISHER KING is a great pick for Gilliam. Also, one of my favorites of his.
John, stop being so racist and watch PATHS OF GLORY. Everything Brandon says about it is spot-on. I think Brandon likes it the most because the final scene is actually...emotional. Who knew Kubrick had such a tender heart?
For the other directors Chris added,
Howard Hawks: B: The Big Sleep, W: of the ones I have seen, probably Sergeant York I like the least, but I don’t remember it very well.
Christopher Nolan: Same as Chris had.
Cameron Crowe: Same as Chris had.
Jean-Pierre Jeunet: B: The City of Lost Children, W: Probably A Very Long Engagement, which I liked.
Mike Nichols: Same as Chris had.
Same Mendes: B: Revolutionary Road, W: American Beauty
Hal Ashby: OS: Being There and it’s great.
Elia Kazan: B: On the Waterfront, W: of the ones I’ve seen, Gentleman’s Agreement isn’t as good as the others, but I still like it.
Sidney Lumet: B: Serpico, W: Network
Sydney Pollack: B: Tootsie, W: The Interpreter, but I haven’t seen a lot of his films.
I haven't decide who December's director will be yet, but I'll be thinking about it. I have one in mind though.
