No idea how you were able to figure out my favorite director haha! Nolan's movies were what really got me into movies and he has remained my favorite even as I've continued to dive into other directors' work.

Here are some directors that I feel have a lot of great movies:

Quentin Tarantino
Alfred Hitchcock
David Fincher
Martin Scorsese
Sergio Leone
Akira Kurosawa
Ben Affleck
Clint Eastwood

Do you have any favorites to recomend?

I agree about Fincher. It's crazy how many takes he does, even for the most mundane shots, like putting down a notebook, and he notices the difference if an editor puts in a different, yet almost identical shot to trick him. I heard Ben Affleck would make minute tweaks to the camera when Fincher would step away while they were shooting Gone Girl and Fincher would notice every time. Even on Zodiac, when he would have an exact amount of fabric on the nose of the Zodiac killer. It does make his films seem perfect from a technical standpoint, knowing each shot you are seeing is exactly how Fincher wanted it.

I've saw a couple Lynch movies a while back. Very intriguing work. I need to check out more of his. I really like Nicholas Winding Refn, at least from what I've seen. My favorites are Drive, The Neon Demon and Only God Forgives.

Do you have a favorite genre?

No, I don't think I've seen any of Haneke's work yet, I'll have to keep an eye out for some!

I like a little bit of everything in terms of genres. If I had to narrow it down I would say classic action and horror films, I always love checking those out

Hey there!
My favourites would have to be Stanley Kubrick, John Carpenter, Ingmar Bergman, Hayao Miyazaki and Alfred Hitchcock.
Kubrick was an expert filmmaker, his films are rich in detail and they're just really the kind of films I love.
John Carpenter is THE master of horror and I'm kind of a horror aficionado. His films are the kind that I would love to make myself.
Ingmar Bergman really knows how to capture emotion well, especially in films like Autumn Sonata, Persona and Fanny & Alexander.
Miyazaki is in my honest opinion the master of animation. His films are always so moving, emotional and fantastical. I love his visuals.
Hitchcock is also an incredible craftsman. I like how well his films are directed; Dial M for Murder for once is an overlooked masterpiece while Vertigo and Psycho are simply way ahead of their time.
What about your favourite directors, buddy?

Phenomena is a pretty nutty movie from Argento that is worth checking out.

My fave directors...that's hard.

Bergman definitely leads the pack (have 48 of his films on my chart).

Love Wilder, Lynch, Hitchcock, Haneke, von Trier, Scorsese, Imamura,, Buñuel, Tarkovsky...

Too hard to do a top 5!

Hey, You've seen a lot of great ones.

I love:

Fanny and Alexander
Scenes From a Marriage
Smiles of a Night

I'd recommend the long versions of the first two, but if you want light-hearted Bergman, go with Smiles.

1. Quentin Tarantino
2. Christopher Nolan
3. J.J. Abrams
4. Martin Scorsese
5. Tony Scott

I'd say Crimson Tide is Scott's best film. Inglourious Basterds is one of Tarantino's better efforts.

I've seen some Bergman and Tarkovsky, but that's it. Most of what I've seen is American cinema.

Hey mate. Thanks for the request. You have a nice list too - even though I still need to check out a lot of your favourites. If I had to pick my 5 favourite directors I would say;
1. Stanley Kubrick (Best: 2001)
2. Christopher Nolan (Best: Memento)
3. Martin Scorsese (Best: Taxi Driver)
4. Denis Villeneuve (Best: Enemy)
5. David Fincher (Best: Zodiac)

Who are your favourite?

From your favourite directors, sadly I've only seen Wild Strawberries, The Mirror and Ivan's Childhood. None of which were really for me but I would still love to check out the rest of Tarkovsky's catalogue and some Bergman movies.

As for Scorsese, Goodfellas will be on the top of my list to recommend. Shutter Island and Raging Bull are pretty great too.

Your list is pretty cool too, though I haven't seen many of the films on it either.

My 4 favorite directors are:
1. John Ford
2. Hayao Miyazaki
3. Alfred Hitchcock
4. John Carpenter
It's hard to pick a fifth one but I'd probably go with either Howard Hawks or Steven Spielberg.

How about you?

For Miyazaki, his most accessible films are probably My Neighbor Totoro (which is in my top 10) and Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. If you want to try something more challenging Spirited Away is probably his masterpiece.

For Ford, I'd probably start with Stagecoach or The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. The Searchers is my favorite but Ford's unique sense of humor is a bit of an acquired taste and it features very prominently in that film.

I'm almost ashamed to admit it, but I have not seen a single film from any of the directors you listed. I have been planning on dipping into Tarkovsky, probably starting with Ivan's Child. What films would you recommend from the other four as good starting points?

From my top ten, I can't recommend It's a Wonderful Life strongly enough. It's just an amazing film and is far less corny then it's reputation would suggest.
