Directors

In their films, I see: aesthetic style, form, ambition, no-bullshit, no-nonsense, emotion, no-filters, no compromises, humanity, attitude, soundtracks, no-soundtracks, epics, arcs, characters, set pieces, cultural touchstones, significance, obsession, fetishization, codification, statements of life, nuance, boldness, plot, no-plot, audacity, introspection, coolness, fugue-state, quality, structure, no-structure, precision, hidden meanings on multiple viewings.

“All my films hinge on the fantastic. I’m not a documentarian; a film is first and foremost a dream.” —  Jean-Pierre Melville.
