Fargo is great... but what about

Raising Arizona?
Barton Fink?
The Big Lebowski?
O Brother?

So many great films. So many so many so many. (And I love their primary rotating cast of Buscemi, Goodman, and Turturro [you don't f*ck 'a with the Jesus])

(in no order)

1. Steven Spielberg -- yes, waaaay to sentimental, but absolutley no one knows where better to put the camera and how to completely and utterly absorb an audience in the story; he's on his way to being an American legend, with a last name that will be every bit as part of parlance as "Twain" or "Franklin" or "Edison."

2. Quentin Tarantino -- the fact that, if anything, he might be underrated speaks volumes; mad, violent, genius who had an undue influence on my adolescence

3. Pedro Almodovar -- color! color! more gorgeous, sumptuous, rhapsodic, emotional color! the colors act!

4. Martin Scorcese -- the ultimate NYC director, and "goodfellas" just might be the best movie ever made; brutal, honest, well-written, and smashingly entertaining, what more do you want?

5. Alexander Payne -- makes the kind of movies i'd like to make

while i respect much of what LVT does from a technical standpoint, i think he needs to leave Denmark and see some of the world before he makes easy, sweeping indictments of a huge, diverse country of over 300m people.

i also don't see how torturing Bjork for 2.5 hours amounts to a great film.

hmmmmmmmm...yeah i remember hearng a rumour that he doesnt care for the U.S. or something...it could be he was taken out of context. ya never know - the media has thier evil ways

that scene at the end of breaking the waves......and then the musical numbers in dancer in the dark.
were very exceptional i think -
i rented but didnt watch dogville though...it bored me...im sure i wouldve maybe gotten into it eventually but sometimes i just dont have the patience
its interesting to me how he uses the same actors over and over

i respect LVT as a filmmaker -- i respect anyone who challenges the mainstream and makes demanding movies. the movie world is better with him.

i just wish i respected him more intellectually. it's just a pet peeve of mine -- people, artists, writers, filmmakers, musicians, etc., say things about Americans and the US that one would never, ever say about any other group or culture (and of course they should be allowed to do so).

i just find that the easy indictments of some aspects of america -- guns are bad! the death penalty is wrong! -- actually debase his filmmaking because it's such an easy point to make, when the point of his films should be to challenge and provoke.

just small quibbles, though.
