Interestingly I think Harris Savides is the only DP with two films on my meaningless list.

Lance, I just realized your list has nothing by THE BERGH!

Unfortunate.

He made many films I quite like or admire in the past 11 years, but not one I'd put above so many others. None I'm really infatuated with, I suppose.

Oh, Paul Cameron, also. Though he only shot a portion of Collateral.

Some kid told me that Zodiac's one of the worst movies he's ever seen, then he went on a navel-gazing diatribe about Gregg Araki's Kaboom. That clown.

Under the same qualifications that you gave, my American List would look something like this:

A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (Steven Spielberg)
Adaptation. (Spike Jonze)
Children of Men (Alfonso Cuaron)
Eastern Promises (David Cronenberg)
Gangs of New York (Martin Scorsese)
The Incredibles (Brad Bird)
Inglourious Basterds (Quentin Tarantino)
Kingdom of Heaven (Ridley Scott)
Lost in Translation (Sofia Coppola)
Mulholland Drive (David Lynch)
The New World (Terrence Malick)
Road to Perdition (Sam Mendes)
The Royal Tenenbaums (Wes Anderson)
A Serious Man (Joel & Ethan Coen)
The Squid and The Whale (Noah Baumbach)
Synecdoche, New York (Charlie Kaufman)
There Will Be Blood (P.T. Anderson)
Traffic (Steven Soderbergh)
The Wrestler (Darren Aronofsky)
Zodiac (David Fincher)

Ridley Scott isn't American, punk. Nor is anyone in that cast other than Norton.

You could make a better argument with Road To Perdition, which at least has an American cast.

Also, Cronenberg is Canadian, FWIW. And Cuaron...

(no order)


A.I. (THE BERG!)
Solaris (THE BERGH!)
Youth Without Youth (THE COPE!)
The Man Who Wasn't There (THE BROS!)
There Will Be Blood (THE PEET!)
The New World (THE MAL!)
Gangs of New York (THE SCORE!)
I'm Not There (THE HAYN!)
All The Real Girls (THE GORD!)
Benjamin Button (THE FINCH!)
Kill Bill (THE T'RANT!)
Synechdoche, New York (THE KAUF!)


I'll finish later. For the record, I disqualified films by Gondry and Minghella.

Since when did American films have to be made by American filmmakers?

Well what determines it, then? Where's it shot? Where the money comes from? Who wrote the script?

Eastern Promises was directed by a Canadian, written by a British guy and shot in London.

Children of Men wasn't shot here either.

I'm going with where the money comes from. If I messed up that part, then I'll edit the list.

Would you classify Hitch's post-1940 work as "American?"

Yes. Because he came here, and until Frenzy, stayed here. The money, the actors (mostly), the writers, etc. All Hollywood.

Scott is debatable, but like I said there wasn't much American about something like Kingdom of Heaven. And Cronenberg is very much a Canadian filmmaker.

All fair points. Take those off and replace them with:

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (Andrew Dominik)
Wonder Boys (Curtis Hansen)

Are you the person I "know" who really loves Wonder Boys? I couldn't remember. Thanks for the reminder to hit that up, it's one of those things that's always on the fringe of my mind to do so.

Nope, I love it too. Just screened it for some friends a month or so ago.

That film was idiotically categorized as a drama by the Golden Globes, and of course won nothing except the award for Dylan's song.

Amazing cast, script, direction, editing, etc.
