Post Charulata's Directors Throwdown

Image
Banner courtesy of Sinister

This is inspired by JediMoonShyne's World Championship of Film as well as MagicFister's 3X33 thread. I guess it's also my own mini version of the Directors' Cup on mubi. Mostly it's just a way for me to organize some of my ad hoc movie watching.

So here's the deal. I like exploring directors' filmographies in their entirety. But there're so many to choose from and it's hard prioritizing. So I'm hoping this thread serves as a way for me to start exploring a few filmmakers I'm not that familiar with. Who knows. Maybe I'll fall in love with a few (or many) and end up moving them up in my queue.

The first step then is to get a list of filmmakers going and this is where you come in. I am looking to find 16 directors that I'm mostly unfamiliar with. Once this list is ready, I'll randomly pair up these directors and watch one film from each director. The director of the film I enjoy more moves on to the next round.

So we start with 16 directors in round 1, 8 in round 2 and so on.

You said Masaki Kobayashi was a blind spot, so I'm throwing that one in the mix.

Well, it depens how you want to view The Human Condition trilogy, as one giant masterpiece or three smaller ones. I cannot not recommend this, so that would either one of four or three of four (in which case, I find it hard to imagine you'd stop after just one). In the former case, I'd recommend the trilogy, Seppuku/Harakiri, Kaidan/Kwaidan and Samurai Rebellion. In the latter case, it's The Human Condition I: No Greater Love, The Human Condition II: Road to Eternity, The Human Condition III: A Soldier's Prayer and Seppuku/Harakiri.

Ooh, tricky. I am happy to consider the trilogy as a whole but am also wondering if it's unfair to have a trilogy compete with a single film.
So how about I go with option 2 despite being certain that my completism won't let me stop at one regardless of the outcome of the first matchup?

Of those, either Mann or McCarey. I've watched the Wyler films on your list.
I can keep both in till I end up with 16 if you like. If I get more than 16, you'll have to choose.

Edit: k, Mann it is.

I can't tell if it's one director for each poster, but I'll throw out a few anyway.

Albert Brooks: Modern Romance, Lost in America, Defending Your Life, Mother.
Josef von Sternberg: Morocco, The Docks of New York, Dishonored, The Scarlet Empress.
Sembene: Black Girl, Xala, Ceddo, Guelwaar.
Skolimowski: Le départ, Walkower, Deep End (restored version coming very soon), Moonlighting.
Rossellini: The Flowers of St. Francis, Paisan, The Taking of Power by Louis XIV, Germany Year Zero.

If I can only have one...Rossellini.

I didn't restrict it a priori since I wasn't sure how much participation I'd get. Looks like I can stick to one rec per poster though.
I have two listed there for Epi but I think he wants me to keep Nikolaidis over Yoshida if it's one rec.

I'll put down Rossellini for you and ask you to pick one more if I fall short.

hehe, figured as much. :oops:

Well, hm, if you are looking for musicals & if co-directing counts, could go for Busby Berkeley:
Gold Diggers of 1933
42nd Street
Footlight Parade
Dames


Unfortunately, I have too many blind spots to even think there's a chance I can provide something interesting, but here's to hoping. :)
