Directors : If You Could Invite 5 DIRECTORS To Your Party, Who Would They Be?

If You Could Invite 5 DIRECTORS To Your Party, Who Would They Be?

Living or dead. I posted this a few days ago, but with Actors (instead of directors). So this would be a SECOND party.

These aren't necessarily a reflection of my favorite directors, but people I'd like to have a conversation with, but also five people who mesh together well - chemistry. I will pick those who speak English enough to have an intellectual (and other) conversations.

I will provide snacks, and soft drinks, juice - I don't want a drunken mess. I want sincere, great conversations.

Since 10 might be too much for one intimate gathering, feel free to name 2 sets.

1. John Cassavetes
2. Ingmar Bergman
3. Orson Welles
4. Federico Fellini
5. Robert Altman

1. Stanley Kubrick
2. Billy Wilder
3. John Huston
4. Sam Peckinpah
5. Marlon Brando

Pasolini was an interesting man. I was lucky to find some YouTube videos with English translations.

Do you have any favorite movies of his? I loved his first two movies (Accatone, Mamma Roma)

Re: If You Could Invite 5 DIRECTORS To Your Party, Who Would They Be?

well if i only had to choose one as my absolute favourite filmmaker of all time, Pasolini would be it and i've seen pretty much all feature length films he has made except of one documentary and La Ricotta (which is actually in between short and feature length), and my favourite films from him are : Oedipus Rex, Arabian Nights, Il Decameron, in that order. The 120 Days of Sodom and The Gospel According to St. Matthew closely following. Then Teorema, Porcile, Hawks and Sparrows, Accattone, Medea. Mamma Roma is very good too and Anna Magnani is wonderful here, but somehow for me a bit uneven bc of Magnani's performance, which was too big and too much in the "center-of-attention" for a film such as Mamma Roma imo..

Re: If You Could Invite 5 DIRECTORS To Your Party, Who Would They Be?

Anna Magnani was definitely a force to be reckon with. She was definitely the center-of-attention at the wedding!

She's one of my favorite actresses. Beautiful, strong, but also vulnerable (even if she tried to disguise it).

I'm guessing you've seen "Stroszek" - which is easily my favorite Herzog movie.

Re: If You Could Invite 5 DIRECTORS To Your Party, Who Would They Be?

ah yes i've seen Stroszek. it's really good, but my fav Herzog film is The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser. i just really love the moodiness of that film and the character of Kaspar Hauser is so wonderfully portrayed, it really touched me the most out of all Herzog films.
