Re: Directors whose movies you'll see no matter what?

Over the years, as directors create a body of work, I no longer feel the need to see each movie "no matter what". After thirty years and who knows how many movies, there are films by Scorsese I have no interest in seeing and probably never will. After Tarantino made Pulp Fiction, I would rush out and see movies he only script doctored, but now it is the movie, not the director that guides what I want to see. If Tarantino made a James Bond movie, I doubt I'd go see it.

Lone exception is Spike Lee. While he hasn't made a great movie since Summer of Sam, I continue to see every fiction movie he makes. No matter what. Even movies that don't "work" (Bamboozled) or are flat out awful (She Hate Me), have enough style and interesting scenes to be engaging. He seems incapable of making a boring movie, amazing for a filmmaker as prolific as he is, and is something I couldn't say for Speilberg, Cronenberg, Gilliam, Tarantino.

Peter Greenaway - although I still have to watch Tulse Luper Suitcases II and III (which has been sitting in my 'to watch' DVD pile, like, forever); and Nightwatch (which I just got on bluray).

You didn't care for Inside Man? I thought that was one of his better films.

I can't say that there is one ... even the ones I like have made a few films I haven't been interested in seeing. I would say Christopher Nolan and David Fincher have come the closest though.
