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)
>>
great thread

outstanding b8 faggot 8/10 rustled

>>53220428
Scorsese = Spoon

Each piece has the same tone and has many of the same elements but at the same time they're all so damn good.
>>
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)

>>53220428
>>53220640
I agree with both of these
>>
Skrillex = Michael Bay

Shitty content but "flashy". Also, "bro"core.
>>
Itt nerds
>>
George Lucas and Eminem

Both went back and ruined the legacy that made them famous in the first place
>>
Korine is definitly death grips
>>
Who would Paul Thomas Anderson's musical equivalent be?
>>
>>53221179
Sufjan
>>
I'd put David Fincher with Radiohead, Wes Anderson with Vampire Weekend
>>
>>53221086
also if you're not expecting much, it's fun
>>
>>53220640
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
>>
>>53220640
But Tarantino can't into black people.

Also Harmony Korine is Ariel Pink

and Kubrick is pretty obviously Pink Floyd

>>53221179
Nick Cave
>>
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
>>
Miles Davis = Kubrick

you know it to be true.
>>
>>53221547
yes this is the correct answer
>>
Spielberg = U2
>>
Prepare for a bunch of idiots who can only name like 150 directors and use Kubrick as the gold standard
>>
>>53220428
>they just make more "accessible" versions of the stuff that influenced them.
>kid a/amnesiac accessible versions of REM, Pixies, Talking Heads etc

>>
Paul Williams is Steven Spielberg
>>
>>53221225

>>
Ted Nugent is Woody Allen solely for the fact that neither had a problem fucking their jailbait step-daughter/adopted daughter.

>>53221325
Floyd is deffo Kubrick.

Hecker - Shane Carruth
>>
>>53220428

Nujabes and Edward Yang, not an Asian thing but both died young after producing a couple of innovative masterpieces.

Also both Asian
>>
>>53220428
This is a fantastic comparison, cool idea OP.
>>
>>53220428
Frank zappa =David Lynch

both had similar upbringings in similar eras and later went on to be major influences in their respective areas with their surreal, offbeat originality
>>
>>53221955
it didn't, idioteque definitely and maybe the title song
>>
>>53221136
Shit, I never thought about it like that..

>>53221303
The Wes anderson and Vampire Weekend comparison makes sense, just not the first one.

>>53220640
Strong nine to a light ten post
>>
>>53221701
Michael Bay = Jay-Z
>>
>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.
>>
Lil B = Uwe Boll
>>

>>
Nicolas Winding Refn = ?
>>
>>53221657
le foreign cinema is best

freakin kurbick PLEBS XD
>>
>>53222518
But Lil B is a unique and endlessly creative artist. At the very least he's a clever satirist.
>>
>>53222669
None of his lyrics are creative. In fact every single one of them is a stale cliche.
>>
Who's AnCo?
>>
>>53222664
Kubrick is not even the best American filmmaker. Woody Allen shits on him even considering the fact he raped a baby or some shit.
>>
Why is this board a meme
>>
>>53222691
But that's incorrect, his lyricism on I Own Swag is fantastic, and even disregard lyrics his beatmaking kickstarted the whole cloud rap moevement and much of swag rap.
>>
Todd Solondz = Xiu Xiu
>>
>>53222756
