Here are some quotes i've collected on the subject.





"The eye of a painter and the soul of a poet" (Macmillan Encyclopedia).



"The Japanese director i admire the most" (Akira Kurosawa)

A couple of days ago i finally received David Bordwell's book on cinematic staging and 4 (still relatively neglected) masters of the art from different periods of film history- Feuillade, Mizoguchi, A ...

That may have been Scorsese's intention, i've thought about it, and i know he liked the contrast between stylish filming and the character's flaws in The Conformist for instance. But i trust my gut r ...

I knew Taxi Driver wouldn't go unnoticed. I've been steeling myself, stiffening the sinews, for the backlash. Of course it's one of the great films for influence + cinematic flair, De Niro is superb, ...

Just as well i didn't list 1000 then!

Actually Scarface is on the brink of being dropped from the 500. And i can see why Japon wouldn't be for all (or most) tastes. Some uncomfortable scenes but i reckon he's a promising director and cred ...
