directors over sixty, who still kick tail

this is a spin-off from the Iliad thread, which is going to be directed by Wolfgang Petersen

where we were wondering, which directors over sixty, still have it

i thought Hayao Miyazaki and David Lynch (he's over sixty right?)

who else is out there?

David Lynch is only 54...and I actually think that directors gets better with age as long as they stay coherent.

Shohei Imamura, and Robert Altman are the first that come to mind. Oh Seijun Sezuki, Nagisa Oshima, Roman Polanski.

Terry Gilliam is pushing 60, and he still rocks. If only he could have finished The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.

Hate to be the one to break the news -- and I wish the case were otherwise -- but Kieslowski is dead (died in 1996).

Joel Schumacher
His track record is inconsistent, but I'm looking forward to Phone Booth and I've enjoyed quite a few of his films.

Most of the ones already mentioned, and I'll add Brian De Palma. Granted, I know there are many people who would disagree, but love or hate him, he has remained consistent over the years.

Manoel de Oliveira. He's in his 90's and he's still doing great.
