Jean-Luc Godard

Jean-Luc Godard
Jean-Luc Godard (French: [ʒɑ̃lyk ɡɔdaʁ]; born 3 December 1930) is a French-Swiss film director, screenwriter and film critic. He is often identified with the 1960s French film movement La Nouvelle Vague, or "New Wave". Like his New Wave contemporaries, Godard criticized mainstream French cinema's "Tradition of Quality", which "emphasized craft over innovation, privileged established directors over new directors, and preferred the great works of the past to experimentation." To challenge this tradition, he and like-minded critics started to make their own films. In a 2002 Sight & Sound poll, Godard ranked third in the critics' top-ten directors of all time (which was put together by assembling the directors of the individual films for which the critics voted).[6] He is said to have "created one of the largest bodies of critical analysis of any filmmaker since the mid-twentieth century."

Generation War When the series first aired in Germany, each episode garnered around 7 million viewers. The Economist stated that hardly any German TV drama ever caused that much public debate.[1] Generation War has generated much controversy. The film's portrayal of Nazis as "Others" separate from and different from most Germans provoked disbelief, and was criticized as historically inaccurate. Some critics have commended the series as well-crafted, and praised it for showing aspects of the war not shown in other World War II pictures. Plot[edit] The three 90 minute parts are titled A Different Time (Eine andere Zeit), A Different War (Ein anderer Krieg), and A Different Country (Ein anderes Land). On the eve of the German attack on the Soviet Union five neighborhood friends meet in Berlin and throw a going-away party in an apartment above their favourite tavern.

Michael Haneke In 2013 Haneke won the Prince of Asturias Award for the arts. Life and career[edit] Haneke was born in Munich, Germany, the son of the German actor and director Fritz Haneke and the Austrian actress Beatrix von Degenschild. Haneke says that films should offer viewers more space for imagination and self-reflection. His next film will be entitled Flashmob. Stage work[edit] Haneke has directed a number of stage productions in German, which include works by Strindberg, Goethe, and Heinrich von Kleist in Berlin, Munich and Vienna. Quotes[edit] "My films are intended as polemical statements against the American 'barrel down' cinema and its dis-empowerment of the spectator. —From "Film as catharsis".[15] "Pornography, it seems to me, is no different from war films or propaganda films in that it tries to make the visceral, horrific, or transgressive elements of life consumable. "Film is 24 lies per second at the service of truth, or at the service of the attempt to find the truth." Filmography[edit]

Wim Wenders Alongside filmmaking, Wenders works with the medium of photography, emphasizing images of desolate landscapes.[1][2] Early life[edit] Wenders was born in Düsseldorf into a traditional Catholic family. His father, Heinrich Wenders, was a surgeon. The use of the Dutch name "Wim", a shortened version of the baptismal name "Wilhelm/Willem", reflected his mother's Dutch provenance, but the Dutch version was rejected by the civil registration authorities in 1945 as "un-German".[3] He graduated from high school in Oberhausen in the Ruhr area. He then studied medicine (1963–64) and philosophy (1964–65) in Freiburg and Düsseldorf. Set on making his obsession also his life's work, Wenders returned to Germany in 1967 to work in the Düsseldorf office of United Artists. Career[edit] Wenders is a member of the advisory board of World Cinema Foundation.

He paid close attention to the types of films people liked to rent and has cited that experience as inspiration for his directorial career.[18] Tarantino has been quoted as saying: "When people ask me if I went to film school I tell them 'no, I went to films Film career[edit] 1980s[edit] 1990s[edit] 2000s[edit] 2010–present[edit]

Stanley Kubrick Stanley Kubrick (/ˈkuːbrɪk/; July 26, 1928 – March 7, 1999) was an American film director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer and editor who did much of his work in the United Kingdom. Part of the New Hollywood film-making wave, he is regarded as one of the greatest and most influential directors of all time. His films, typically adaptations of novels or short stories, are noted for their "dazzling" and unique cinematography, attention to detail in the service of realism, and the evocative use of music. Kubrick's films covered a variety of genres, including war, crime, literary adaptations, romantic and black comedies, horror, epic, and science fiction. Kubrick was also noted for being a demanding perfectionist, using painstaking care with scene staging, camera-work and coordinating extremely closely both with his actors and his behind-scenes collaborators.
