>>5652591 It good you're efficiently smug while missing a better recommendation system than one of smug people who can't read even a chart; it will save you a lot of effort on the being smug without reading the books board. I mean, you'll still be shit, but efficiently shit.
>>5652670 ...Why the hell is Corra all the way near the bottom of that list? Are documentaries considered "the challenger deep" by /tv/? I mean, come on. He's a very talented compiler/director, but there's nothing really "inaccessible" about his work, unless you consider the act of documenting as somehow subverting the purpose of film, which is bullshit.
>>5652670 This is better than OP but most of Kubrick's work is pretty accessible. Soderberg and Anderson are also very accessible. All three of them are probably more accessible than Gilliam, Burton or Shamylan. Like you said, it is supposed to be accessibility, right? Nolan should be higher. Where is Jodorowsky? He should be near the bottom. Also there are three Coppolas and Francis is significantly more accessible than Sofia.
>>5652670 Oh god, you can't put Kurosawa that low. He's responsible for movies like Hidden Fortress, High and Low and Stray Dog. I mean he's probably the most accessible Japanese director to western audiences.
I found Jodorowsky and you have him higher than both Tarkovsky and Heneke. Heneke at least should be a lot higher. He has difficult subject manner but is not very difficult in format.
>>5653606 I think they have a more straight forward style compared to Gilliam or Burton, but Magnolia, The Master, 2001, and Barry Lyndon are definitely less accessible than anything by Gilliam or Burton. A case can be made for Shyamalan, I think The Village and Signs are definitely smarter films if you think about them, but people like to rip on him instead of thinking about his work.
Melancholia is a great movie though and one of Von Trier's best (if not the best). I specifically like the way it confronts the potentiality for the grand destruction of the Earth alongside the destructive self represented through its two primary characters.
>>5653725 Lars con Trier is a bit overly pretentious. He has some good concepts and his movies are usually technically competent but he thinks his is a lot more meaningful that it actually is. A lot of his work is pure pretense.
I've think that I've seen 4 of his films and now I just put him down to being a really confrontational film-maker. Some film-makers end up being pretentious by accident (somebody like Aronofsky) but I genuinely think Von Trier does it all for the sake of making his audience react in some way.
I think I came to this conclusion when I realised how big an influence Brecht might have been on him when I saw Dogville.
