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 :lol: 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 :lol:

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. :cool:

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.....
