#1

Remarkable directors (according to you) you’ve never seen a single film from:



Shuji Terayama

Kon Ichikawa

Yasujiro Ozu

Mikio Naruse

Koji Wakamatsu

Sabu

Kaneto Shindo

Toshiaki Toyoda

Kaige Chen

Edward Yang



Ingmar Bergman

Jean-Luc Godard

Jacques Tati

Michael Haneke

Andrei Tarkovsky

Lars von Trier

John Cassavetes

Roger Corman

Jess Franco

Ruggero Deodato



EDIT: mix up with the russians, Tarkovsky, not Sokurov


#2

How can I say they’re remarkable if I’ve not seen their work? I can just base my opinion on what other people say before I get around to see them myself.

:o Hum, little Hung Fist, I’m gonna give you some advices cause now that I’m myself a bit educated about kung-fu movies, I gotta give you some advices ;D



Never seen a movie from :



Georges Franju

Jean Cocteau

Sam Peckinpah (I might see The Wild Bunch really soon though if I don’t miss the movie in theater)

Monte Hellman (hope to see some very soon)

Ernst Lubitsch

Kusturica

Pasolini (but I’m sure it’s not my style of movies)

Haneke either (but again don’t plan to see some soon)

Jess Franco (but I wouldn’t have thought to quote him if you hadn’t Hung Fist, ahah)



I should see more movies from :



Samuel Fuller

Carpenter

Kurosawa

Fritz Lang



Oh and yeah, I haven’t seen any of the asian directors you’ve quoted, not even Ozu…


#4

Was it Kurosawa that said “to never have watched a Ozu film is like never seeing the moon” ?


#5

I’ve already seen the moon, so I have already seen a Ozu movie ? Ahah, sorry, Socrate on my back ;D

mighty talk from someone who hasn’t seen a single Godard film. :wink: who btw was a major influence on Tarantino.

also, I remember Tarantino referring to some Kurosawa film as “high brow crap”.

which is not saying that I avoid his works because of QT, i want to see Kurosawa someday, everybody keeps telling me hes the shit.

Why should I watch something that has had a major influence on Tarantino? I’d rather watch movies I am interested in.

I did? QT was not joking when he said that. Definately.

those movies tend to be great.


#14

I have never seen a single movie from Mario Bava and Dario Argento. I don’t understand how cause I’ve read lot about them, know their soundtracks, posters, seen a lot of extracts. I was almost sure I had watched at least one movie… But no… Gotta change this as soon as possible.


#15

Uwe Boll





and I’m proud of it.


#16

I’ve never seen any movie from him either, ahah.



BUT I just saw The Wild Bunch, so I can ow be proud to say I’ve seen my first Sam Peckinpah ;D

You should check out Convoy. Without ever having seen his other films, I can already say that it’s definately his best.



ON TOPIC: I remembered a moment ago that I’ve never seen a single Truffaut film. But I bought Jules et Jim the other day. :slight_smile:


#18

Thanks for the tip, I will definitely check out Convoy. And Jules et Jim is awesome. You should check out Les 44 Coups too aka 400 Blows, by Truffaut, awesome.


#19

Ah, just noticed I had somehow mixed Aleksandr Sokurov and Andrei Tarkovsky… From Tarkovsky I haven’t seen anything, Sokurov I know from Solntse.



Lili, I’d recommed you to add Straw Dogs to your watch list, if you want to see more Peckinpah


#20

You know what ? I was thinking of it during the screening and I really understand it was a huge shame from me not to have seen it !
