Who are your favorite filmmakers?

No answer yet

What are some of your favorite movies?

Amalie, Priceless, Platoon, True Romance, Out of Africa, Oh Brother Where Art Thou?, Avitar, Seraphine, Godfather I & II, A Prophet , The Confessions (Documentary on Frontline), The Meltdown (Documentary on Frontline), Dr. Strangelove, Schindler's List

What lessons could the Hollywood studios learn from independent or foreign filmmakers?

Spend money on quality screenplays and less on huge stars and pyrotechnics. Never make another movie based on a 1970's TV show. And for god sakes don't ever make a movie called Cowboys vs. Aliens. The French have proven you can make a well written, clever, and charming romantic comedy. (It helps if you have Audrey Tautou of course.)

Introduction

Extra butter please.
