It only counts if the actor has been in 3 or more of the director's movies. :(

I probably should add Takashi Shimura to Kurosawa. :(

And to everone who has other suggestions, I say this: I am not a actor/director pair finding machine. I don't even know who Emir Kusturica or Miki Manojlovic are. :(

Kurosawa and Mifune. I love the films these two made together. And without Mifune [for the most part, but not always] the films are almost lacking a key ingredient.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Well, what about Anthony Michael Hall and John Hughes?

Matt and Ben/Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith?

Bill Paxton/Michael Biehn and James Cameron?

Emir Kusturica directed Underground- the poster for which is someone's avatar around here- and Black Cat, White Cat. He is one of the few prominent filmmakers from the former Yugoslavia who continued to work on an international scale through the ravages, addressing them very effectively in Underground.

Ignorance is never an excuse, not with IMDB just waiting to answer all our curious little cinephilic queries!
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

I didn't think anyone would actually take me seriously, you know...


But since you brought it up, I'd like to know why people have a problem with Cameron.
