Image this scene, it is ordered that you are going to be sent off to an unknown desert island. Before you go, you are told that you can take with you the entire body of work from five film directors to view on the island.
You may never escape from this island, so any films not included might not be viewed by your eyes ever again. Keep the films of the directors that mean a lot to you, but also consider that the same type of five directors may leave you eventually restless.
There are many things to consider.
So, who would you pick, and why? Which five directors work is coming with you?
Here are my five, let’s see if you agree with any.
1. Charles Chaplin
The ultimate entertainer and spirit lifter.
2. Alfred Hitchcock
The perfect mix of mainstream entertainment and technical art.
3. Jean-Juc Godard
To keep my brain occupied to the fullest, but also for fun and subtle humour.
4. Krzysztof Kieslowski
To keep me connected to humanity and human behaviour.
5. Hayao Miyazaki
To remind me that, when done correctly, animation can be more powerful than any film. But, also for a huge amount of adventure.
So, that was my list. But, now it’s up to you! Please comment below.
