No, I think you've dug yourself into a hole.  There's a difference between your favourite/most inpirational and the 'best'.  What I was saying is this:  when it come down to art, there is no 'best'.  It's what YOU find as your favourite.  And your favourites become the most inspirational to you, especially when you're an aspiring filmmaker.

So how have I dug myself into a hole? It wasn't contradictory in the slightest.  I think you should ACTUALLY READ THE POSTS CAREFULLY.

I would say that is that, Mr. Mattress Man.

Or perhaps you should explain what you mean by 'inspirational' and not assume I know what you mean.

Are you the primary supporter of renaming french fries into freedom fries? what a disgrace.. absolutely ridiculous.. you know, I bet there are some people out there who call it freedom fries now anyway (even though it's not the 'official name'). They'll walk into a BK and say "I'd like some freedom fries," with a smirk on their red-necked face. A patriotic smirk as the pimple-faced cashier looks at them in disgust and dissapointment.

Or perhaps I should stop going burger hopping so late at night. It's up to you.

mr. burgerking, i think what finlayr means by "inspirational" is that those directors/movies inspire his own work or life even.

example: spielberg is easily one of the most talented and gifted directors alive today. but do i like his films? not all of them. some i even hate. does he or his films inspire my own art? not at all. cronenberg on the other hand makes films that i am absolutely in love with. his films speak to me and i relate to him and his films. his movies inspire mine, just like j g ballard and william s burroughs inspire his films. does this mean cronenberg is a superior director/filmmaker to spielberg? thats irrelevant and impossible to answer.

hey, some people "get" pop art, others dont. does this mean that pop art is superior or inferior to other movements? no, either you find it creative and it inspires your own work or it doesnt. in the end, pop art is just a philosophy, an attack on neo-realism and nothing more. whether its actually "good" art or trash is just anyones opinion.

Well put.

Burger King--I didn't start talking about Freedom Fries or anything like that and I don't even know what you're talking about.

Hey, Sigur Ros, what kinda movies and filmmakers do you like?

Sigur Ros are one of my favourite bands.  Saw them live too.  Excellent stuff.

The word "grand-fćtter" doesn't exist in the English language!
