Polanski's apartment trilogy is probably the most harrowing psychoanalytic projects undertaken by any auteur in the history of cinema. Fantastic stuff.

The Innocents and Dead of Night are essential horror movies as well.

Post screencaps of their favorite 2 seconds NOW

I asked Jack some questions about VA theory recently and have yet to get a response. Man loves him some McTiernan.

Do you like Paul W.S. Anderson? Direct to video action flicks? That's about it. It's not sadly not about this:

VA was a big thing all of a sudden, then a big thing people started to get confused and annoyed by, then just a thing, then not really a thing in the first place because it's basically just normal auteurism in the classic sense that people were like oh yeah auteurism is a thing for reasons.

And all liking Paul W.S. Anderson means is you got taaaaaste.

It's a loaded term that doesn't carry with it any added ideologies beyond classical auteurist studies. The emphasis on masculine action pictures and formal acumen, with no emphasis on the politicization of the image, seems like carving out a small portion out of a grander sandbox in which to operate. Case in point: Edgar Wright feels like a perfect VA guy given the parameters in which they deem worthy of study (hyper-kineticism, the screengrab) and is an extension of J. Hoberman's Vulgar Modernism ascribed to Tashlin/Lewis/Dante.

The two issues are that he is already critically-beloved and embraced (understandable if the VA goal is re-appraisal or keeping guys from falling underneath the cracks) and the guy who made the main list on MUBI doesn't like him. He also doesn't like Scorsese, which again is fine, but the inclusion/exclusion of certain directors outside of a "canon" with a hazy definition does rub me the wrong way.

Perhaps I'm approaching it from the wrong angle, especially in assuming that it needs a theoretical framework. I like Predator and the Fast & Furious series - maybe we can get along.

I can see where both of your negative arguments are coming from. I at least look forward to looking into some of what they wrote before "the fall" at least.

And yes, I do enjoy Paul W.S. Anderson.

I am of an opinion, and you can call me crazy if you like, that if Arnold Schwarzenegger's accent wasn't sooooo overpowering, he'd actually be a decent actor.
