ITT: We compare musicians to directors
I think that Nolan is most comparable to Radiohead. Both are pretty good at what they do, but they just make more "accessible" versions of the stuff that influenced them. For some reason, they are hailed as the second coming of artistic Jesus by people who don't know any better.
Kanye = Tarantino.
Both are noted assholes with an over inflated ego. Both have a major tendency to use samples. Both constantly get heavily praised no matter what they do (save for one or two exceptions)
Ingmar Bergman = Bob Dylan
Critically acclaimed and revered by many, particularly for his writing abilities, considered a legend and can generally be found in "greatest of all time" lists, prolific and consistently high quality output over the 60s
BONUS: They both released the work most popularly considered their "masterpiece" in '66 (Persona/BoB)
I agree with both of these
at the end of the day both are good, but there's a lot of stupid shit you could bring up in their work
Martin Scorsese is Frank Zappa, everyone talks about how he's the best and anywhere you go you'll find dickriders, made a lot of movies/music, and even though he's made some really good shit, there's some really mediocre work along with some really pretentious shit too
Stanley Kubrick is Beefheart, a couple of great pieces of work and the rest is pretentious and almost at the point of being unwatchable/ unlistenable and whoever likes it is either lying or mentally ill
>they just make more "accessible" versions of the stuff that influenced them.
>kid a/amnesiac accessible versions of REM, Pixies, Talking Heads etc
terrible bait try harder
also nolan is shit aside from memento
Ian Watkins = Victor Salva
Sigur Ros = Terence Malick
GYBE = Oliver Stone
Mac Demarco = Farrelly Brothers
>Wes Anderson and Phil Elverum
Both are really creative at their work and they never show up in the news for more than a week.
>Randal Kleiser and Gary Glitter
Show WAY too much interest in 12 year olds.
>almost at the point of being unwatchable
