40 Replies to “Directors A-Z”

  1. Fantastic work so far! Excellent selections of both cinematographers and directors. This site is a great reference.

    Of course, there are LOTS of films out there that would make a terrific addition to this collection. Let’s chat!

  2. Oh there are so many that I’m dying to get to do, Im looking at the site as a long term project.

    I don’t really have time to update it more than I do, It used to a be a post every second day, its now every third day (and Im struggling making that schedule sometimes with pre production on my feature films)

    But i would love to hear some suggestions of course… ill see what I can do!

  3. Great site, will be bookmarking it.

    How about some of Woody Allen’s collaborations with Gordon Willis, Carlo DiPalma and Sven Nykvist? The period of 1977 – 1998 using those three exclusively is a watershed of outstanding photography, perhaps most notably with Willis on “Manhattan” and “Stardust Memories”.

  4. Good stuff, bookmarking this site. Some great films, directors etc. but I dislike the lack of Ingmar Bergman in this list. His ‘Persona’ (with the above mentioned Sven Nykvist) is one of the most beautiful films ever.

    It’s nice to see Tarkovsky and all the Herzog movies with Klaus Kinski. Other directors whose films should be here in the future (I hope) are Federico Fellini and Krzysztof Kieslowski. Keep it up man.

  5. Ive never been a huge Bergman fan, I appreciate his films, but I dont really love them, so I don’t actually own any of the DVDs. That said of the few I have watch the photography and imagery have always been really powerful… I have a friend whose a big fan so Ill see if I can borrow some of his movies for a while.

    Ill have to find people who own Kieslowski and Fellini… because honestly I havent gotten around to seeing any of their films yet (though I desperately want to)

  6. Great idea for a site. Nice cinematography and interesting editing tend to be a very large part of what I respond to in films.

    A few directors I’d recommend you include on your site sometime would be –

    Michael Mann: His regular cinematographer is Dante Spinotti – all their collaberations are very striking. I think MANNHUNTER is a particular standout; also my DVD has a nice feature with Spinotti called The Look of MANNHUNTER. Mann’s done brilliant Hi-def work with Dion Beebe on COLLATERAL and MIAMI VICE.

    Mike Figgis: I think he tends to be his own DP, regularly shoots with handheld 16mm, in colour. I’ve only seen LEAVING LAS VEGAS – extraordinary. THE LOSS OF SEXUAL INOCENCE looks well worth checking out too.

    Olivier Assayas: plenty of stunning cinematographry over the 330 mins. of CARLOS. It had 2 DP’s. It’s incredible it only cost 18 million. His other film look great too.

    Tony Scott: one of the most visually fascinating directors around. His really interesting stuff comes with MAN ON FIRE and after, but all his films prior to this are very strong too. My DOMINO DVD has a featurette on its visual style – goes into great detail on Scott’s multi-camera shooting style, use of various frame rates, and post production – everything they did developing the negative to get the distinct look.

    Merchant-Ivory Films: period piece specialists. Beautiful cinematography and editing on HOWARDS END and SURVIVING PICASSO particularly. Of the other of their films I’ve seen A ROOM WITH A VIEW is pretty good, THE WHITE COUNTESS is bad.

    Others I think you shoul consider including some work from are Spielberg, Tarantino, Polanski and, yeah, Welles as others have said, or some film noir.

    Keep up the good work! Ciao.

  7. Love your site… love the images. Well done, great iconic movie moments here. Keep up the good work.

  8. Wish list:

    Bee Season – 2005, directed by Scott McGehee & David Siegel; director of photography, Giles Nuttgens
    Synecdoche, New York – 2008, directed by Charlie Kauman; director of photography, Frederick Elmes
    Rocket Science – 2007, directed by Jeffrey Blitz; director of photography, Jo Willems
    Stranger Than Fiction – 2006, directed by Marc Forster; director of photography, Roberto Schaefer
    Thumbsucker – 2005, directed by Mike Mills; director of photography, Joaquin Baca-Asay
    Little Miss Sunshine – 2006, directed by Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris; director of photography, Tim Suhrstedt
    Little Children – 2006, directed by Todd Field; director of photography, Antonio Calvache

  9. Sorry, forgot one:
    I Heart Huckabees – 2004, directed by David O. Russell; director of photography, Peter Deming

  10. very awesome collection of screencaps glad i found this page,dont know if it was mentioned but theres no akira kurosawa :O

  11. could you please add Alan Parker’s 1982 film (Pink Floyd The Wall)? Thank you very much!

  12. Some directors that would be nice to see listed:
    Theo Angelopolous, Alexander Sokurov, Takeshi Kitano, Carlos Saura, Emir Kusturica, Peter Greenaway and Tran Anh Hung

      1. Jacob just added all your directors to my list, they’ve all been on my radar but I guess it’s coming time to get active. I am currently working on an entire Kurosawa marathon, it should be starting soon but he has a large body of work

  13. I love your site. Thank you for all the effort put into it!

    I’m wondering if you’ve ever thought of doing more classic comedies. The works of Mel Brooks and Christopher Guest come to mind as movies with such wonderful and distinct visual styles.

  14. Hi thank you for this amazing website! Could you include stills of Je t’aime moi non plus?

    Thank you so much!

  15. Thank you for making this amazing work, it’s something really useful and also necessary. I sugest adding Kaurimaki’s films. More work from Dops like Aguirresarobe and Alcaine. Maurice Pialat films, Hsiao-Hsien’s films, Tsai Ming-Liang, Edward Yang’s films … Some ideas. Those will be really helpful.
    Anyway thank you so much, you made the world better making this website.

  16. Very interesting blog. I suggest the works of Kiju Yoshida, Peter Greenaway and Shuji Terayama. The majority of the most visually interesting films I’ve ever seen are by those three.

  17. I see you don’t monetize your site, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn additional bucks every month because you’ve got high quality content.
    If you want to know how to make extra $$$, search for: Ercannou’s essential adsense alternative

  18. Fantastic Site! Incredible in depth of selection. Might I recommend adding the films of Adrian Lyne as well as additional works by Tony Scott — 2 of the most influential visual stylists in film!
