I'll list directors of great admiration from me, not necessarily in any order or greatness.

Hayao Myazaki - my favorite director working now
Akira Kurosawa
Federico Fellini
Michelangelo Antonioni
Luis Bunuel
Buster Keaton
Paul Thomas Anderson
Stanley Kubrick
Robert Altman
Martin Scorsese

I'm also a major fan of David Gordon Green's first movie, George Washington. It is a great film, that unlike any movie from 2000, is still growing with me. I kinda want to write another post on George Washington (I did on the last board), but maybe I will put ideas of it into a different post.  But I'll wait to see how he handles his next few films before making any declaration upon him. Also, I have a great desire to discover more from Yasijuro Ozu.

1.  PTA
2. Scorsese
3. Fellini
4. Godard
5. Malick
6. Nichols
7. Kubrick
8. Allen (Woody)
9. Altman
10. Maysles brothers

--honorable mention (not enough movies to qualify): Vince Gallo, Sofia Coppola

--with apologies to: Francis Ford Coppola, Quentin Tarantino, and The Coens (all of whom were inched out for no good reason save lack of space).
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.
