Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.

David Lynch... by far! And I like Kevin Smith too.

And as for "blockbuster" directors I like Robert Zemeckis cause I'm obsessed with the Back to the Future trilogy... And although I've tried so hard to fight against it... I really liked Forrest Gump I'm actually doing an auteur director research project at the moment so I've had to see a lot of movies by certain directors to see if I can identify any kind of signature running through their work. It's been interesting. I'm concentrating mostly on Mel Gibson though cause there hasn't been much work done on him as a director and although he's only directed 3 movies I think he's going to be (and maybe is at the moment) one of the most-watched and anticipated directors in the world... I dislike all his movies though... but he's sooooo intriguing... he's full of paradoxes

My favorites...

Pedro Almodovar - All About My Mother, Bad Education, Talk to Her, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Matador, High Heels, Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!
he's made soo many great movies! I love his dark humor, his strong female characters and bright colors. His newer work is more mature, but still very good. He's an excellent writer and director. I couldn't pick a favorite, I love them all.

Lukas Moodysson - Fucking Amal, Together, Lilya 4-Ever, A Hole in My Heart

Todd Solondz - Welcome to the Dollhouse, Happiness, Storytelling, Palindromes

Lars von Trier - Dogville, Dancer in the Dark, Breaking the Waves, The Idiots

Francois Ozon - Swimming Pool, Under the Sand, 8 Women, Sitcom, 5x2, Water Drops on Burning Rocks

Alexander Payne - Election, About Schmidt, Citizen Ruth

Atom Egoyan - Exotica, Ararat, The Sweet Hereafter, The Adjuster

Julio Medem - Sex and Lucia, Lovers of the Arctic Circle, Red Squirrel, Vacas, Tierra

I could go on.....

....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.
