If you had to choose exactly 10 film directors, who you consider among the greatest (non-SW directors), who would it be?
I’ve given it lots of thoughts on several occasions, and based on thousands of films, this is finally what I came up with:
Andrej Tarkovskij (1932-1986)
Akira Kurosawa (1910-1998)
Carl Th. Dreyer (1889-1968)
Krzysztof Kieślowski (1941-1996)
Luis Buñuel (1900-1983)
Peter Greenaway (1942-)
Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975)
Rainer Werner Fassbinder (1945-1982)
Robert Bresson (1901-1999)
Satyajit Ray (1921-1992)
This is naturally a very restrictive choice, but it’s easier than mentioning dozens of names.
If you have any thoughts, then I’ll be delighted to hear them!
