mine is japanese Akira Kurasove .He has done great with Dreams,Rashomon,Seven Samurai.I really admire him.The talent he have generated with the acting performance of Mifune was great.He have created a reputation for Japanese films in world arena.

that is one good answer. akira kurosawa is a great director. and also a very good screen play writer. he might even be the greatest japanese cineast ever and certainly one of the best in the world.

cheer up and i propose you to see dreams by Kurasova.Its great and youll certainly love.Its not a thing to much think like the films of Godard or Eisenstein.Its classic.watch it if you get a chance.

It's impossible to pick just one. At the top of my list are Ridley Scott, Takeshi Kitano, Peter Greenaway, Jim Jarmusch, Akira Kurasawa, and Quentin Tarantino. There are lots of others I admire, but that would be a long list.

man you have picked up a heavy bunch. i also like jim jarmush a lot and my father is just mad about greenaway. but i don't know what to say about takeshi kitano. i know he is considered to be one of the great art film directors today, but some of his movies just seem a little pourly made or not even to interesting.

You know, I honestly don't know. There was a time where I would have said George Lucas, but after seeing Star Wars episodes 1 and 2, he's no longer in the running. Probably James Cameron. I liked Aliens, and I liked Terminator, and I can't think of any other directors that I've seen multiple movies of theirs.

Definitely Martine Scorscece, but Tony Scott is asswell one of the best. Also Quentin, but yeah he makes it all cruel or sometimes over the top, still he has his classics!
