Alright, so this is an idea I have so I hope I am able to convey it to everyone here clearly.  Directors often remind us of other directors, who remind of us other directors, and so on.  So, why don't we try to trace current directors back to a director before him, and so on.  Perhaps by the end of this thread, we can trace everyone back to a few key directors (perhaps Melies & Griffith), we'll see.

I'll start it out, feel free to add a completely different lineage or to add on to mine, or to dispute it.

Jean Renoir > Robert Altman > PT Anderson

Ya, I noticed that before I made this topic.  I think this is a different subject though.  That is trying to classify filmmakers into established categories; this is trying to establish categories.

Might be funnier if the approach was like: if this director + this director had a baby...

Or even funnier yet if Pubrick had used that footage of Bjork attacking the reporter at the airport in his avatar...
