Top 10 films your excited about, mainly because of the director.

The idea for this is that the thing you're most excited about is that its the new movie by ________. The most notable thing that has baring on you're excitement is who is making the film.

1. Terrence Malick-"The Tree of Life"
2. Paul Thomas Anderson-"The Master"
3. Jean Luc Godard- "Film Socialisme"
4. John Carpenter- "The Ward"
5. Whit Stillman-"Dancing Mood"
6. Sofia Coppola-"Somewhere"
7. Werner Herzog- "My Son My Son What Have Ye Done" "The Cave"
8. Ridley Scott-"Alien Prequels"
9. The Coen Brothers- "True Grit"
10. Vincent Gallo-"Promises Written In Water"

honourable mentions:
Wong Kar Wai-'The Grand Master'
Davod Cronenberg "A Dangerous Method"
Andrew Dominik-"Cities Of The Plain"
Aaron Katz-"Cold Weather"

Re: Top 10 films your excited about, mainly because of the director.

Nice list.

I'll try not to dupe anything as I like most of those choices too.

Ramin Bahrani - Whatever he does I'm there. Possibly the most exciting director working today.
Ji-woon Kim - Whatever he does next.
Joon-ho Bong - Whatever he does next.
Nicholas Winding Refn - 'Only God Forgives', or whatever
Chris Nolan - Whatever he does next.
Takeshi Kitano - 'Outrage' or whatever.
Steven Soderbergh - 'And Everything Is Going Fine'
Johnnie To - 'Life Without Principle' or whatever.
Darren Aronofsky - 'Black Swan' or whatever.
Guillermo del Toro - Something he directs next, or produces.

Always excited for a new PTA film. I actually go to the theatres to watch his films... and I rarely go to the theatre.

Very interested in the new Malick film. If it's at TIFF this year, I'll make an attempt to get tickets for it.

I would never have guessed a list like that given the spelling and grammar. I would have guessed Transformers 3. Shows what I know.

Anything by Scorsese, Tarantino, Nolan or the Coens tends to get me pumped. Most looking forward to:

I Heard You Paint Houses (Scorsese & Deniro mob flick) & Batman 3 in the coming years.

Is The Master supposed to be PTA's epic movie about Scientology? if so, then that's my next pick. I love all his movies.

Sorry to be a jerk, but let's not do the "Anything by ________________" picks you guys. That just turns this thread into "Favorite Directors".

I used to look forward to every post by Groucho, but now I'll just look forward to 'Post Where I'm Not a Jerk" by Groucho.

This and Green Lantern since Martin Campbell is pretty much the best modern action director (took that title from John McTiernan in 1995).
