>I am le theatrical italian man who casts his shitty wife actress in all my movies and is obsessed with breasts
fuck off, complete amateur
Hitchock pretty much created the modern suspense thriller as it is and the conventions that are adopted in modern films of the the genre even today, and in that sense his work was incredibly influential to pave the way for generations of great cinema. On the other hand I do feel that many of his films are overrated, however, he is by no means a hack though.
Welle's contributions to film are greatly appreciated by even the most uninitiated. I'm guessing you have a personal problem with him rather than a true dislike of his work.
THX was a marvellous effort for a young aspiring filmmaker, rich in imagination and poetic power. If anything THX is a film that is underrated, specifically because so many people dismiss it like you are doing right now.
>muh italian heritage
>muh de niro
yeah yeah we get it, 5/10 you haven't made a film since Casino
THX had great moments but it clearly didn't have enough in it to support it's longer running time and the pacing is awful. It doesn't help that the only version available has been butchered by Lucas.
>I make le old westerns
his films are so fucking dull and badly aged
im not sure he's overrated, underrated, or properly rated as an average director.
But i felt like we should discuss robert zemeckis.
I wasn't aware he did back to the future AND forrest gump AND beowulf AND roger rabbit AND flight
He sure likes to try new things thats for sure. And i enjoy both the childish back to the future/roger rabbit tone and the flight/castaway tone. Haven't seen any of his CGI shitfest tho
His movies are properly rated, people simply don't know the name of the man behind them.
Everybody knows Back to the future and Forrest Gump, but most plebs would be unable to say the name of their director, unlike Spielberg's flicks for example.
Well, people do praise his films but he is not the iconic thing about the films if that makes sense. He also did cast away and Monster House that shows some real versatility I must say.
I think he needs to die to get the public recognition.
he has made some really good films, but isn't the cool club of hollywood auteurs so hasn't received as much recognition
For what it's worth I think he is a better director than De Palma
But you have to agree that it is the same as with fightclub. A bunch of tryard faggots praise him so it becomes cringy to support him. But he is not in any sense a bad director. May rely on gimmicks but uses them well.
But I never say he was bad director, thread is about overrated directors and he definitly is.
I enjoy his flicks like most people, but I don't go pretending that Inception is some kind of high cinema.
So oscar bait means that he gets oscars?
I've been watching quite a few Hitchcock films lately since getting the 'Masterpieces' boxed-set. Some of those films are badly dated (Rope, Read Window), some are outright silly (The Man Who Knew Too Much 1956), and some are in fact pretty good (Shadow of a Doubt, Psycho, Vertigo)... but overall I can't say I have been very impressed with his work.
When I compare what Hitchock was doing in 1960 with La Dolce Vita for instance I think Hitchcock was actually a bit behind...
Since everyone is ignoring OP, I'll start with nepotism/daddys boy/conehead
Vertigo is even more overrated than Citizen Kane, the lighting in the film is fucked up, everything in the film is all bright and shiny like a Christmas tree, looks awful
Also the plot makes no sense, Scottie apparently can't recognise that his new girlfriend is the same woman as before because she dyed her hair a different color? It's nonsensical
citizen kane did not age like milk. It's got a great pacing and great takes. The use of the newsreel in a movie, the sets, the focal point thing he developed..
It's just that you're ignorant.
sort of, yeah. But he's got a solid style. It's very personal and, even if you find it mediocre, it works. His movies don't feel like an other movie rerun on tv, that's where im going.
He is pseudo religious nut job who makes movies based on feelings. He is a hatchet job hack who basically uses the same camera angle/track/lighting shot in every single film he has done after thin red line. There is no narration, no plot, same old characters staring at empty space. Now he pumps out shit because he needs the money and don't give a fuck about quality. I used to like this guy, yeah I am mad.

Does he do anything good, or is it the same emo shit every time?
Why did it take like 15 replies to get to him?
Not a meme, his movies are fucking boring and pretentious. That should not be taken to mean artistic.
You can be artistic while still keeping audiences engaged.
maybe, but the movie is awful, and i kind of like polanski.
a funny thing: years before the movie appears my brother looked and dressed exactly like depp's character, and he is an antique bookseller and antique libraries investigator. his job was almost exactly the kind of job depp do in the movie. my brother is not so cute, but his complexion is similar to depp's. shit, he even used to wear the same moustache, eyeglasses and sachel were he used to carry his old books.
we saw the movie together and we were memerized by the similarities, his wife coul not speak a word.
after the movie all of his annoying colleagues were mocking him to a point where he just changed the way he dress, cuts his hair, and even the model of eyeglasses he uses.
