Steven Spielberg

With subject matter concerning those on the fringes, the taken-for-granted, the unknown, the almost-forgotten, accidental everyday heroes, and innocents affected, your vision is broad, yet always from the subjective of the protagonist, using the pathos of music, sweeping dollies to reveal the forces of what are to come.

Alfred Hitchcock

Your camera is ever our eyes; the shape and trajectory of the protagonist is at all times visually told, drawing us in with varying methods and techniques to portray confusion, terror, suffocation. Your subjects are the vulnerable, everyday types suddenly upended, the normal that becomes a living nightmare.

Intent more on commentating on the process of cinema itself, on the characters both inside and outside of the story, on the techniques and the forms of expression used by film and how they relate to the audience, you use random voice-overs, jump-cuts, and an ever moving camera that occasionally jars, often with a humor that acts as a meta-commentary on the commentary process itself.

Stanley Kubrick

You are obsessed with obsession and often the obsessed; employing techniques that constantly challenge the way films are crafted; with protagonists that are find themselves imploding within the very worlds they helped create.

Ingmar Bergman

Ingmar Bergman

Your subjects are the sensual from under the restricted, youth and nature acting out repressed desires, forever concerned with breaking out from the confines we find ourselves in; and with an uncanny eye for casting, utilizing actors for every whisper, for every held breath, your camera is held close and low to emphasize the smallest shifts of emotional moments.

Ed Wood

Ed Wood

You are content to be the world's worst director, with subject matter that begs belief, casting and script thrown to the winds, and the technical awareness of a pond frog; yet you still see yourself as a master of the form, yearning to torture the rest of the world.

Federico Felllini

Federico Felllini

You have a warm, naturalistic approach to movie-making, with themes that are both fantastic yet self-reflective, sensual yet brutal; your camera follows the joys of free sensuality of youth and love in tandem with the mood of is before you.
