"If you could have dinner with any 3 filmmakers (living or dead)"


  

          

Idea "interpolated" from a post in The Lesson

http://board.okayplayer.com/okp.php?az=show_topic&forum=5&topic_id=1967814&mesg_id=1967814

And kinda-sorta spun off from the great Dinner for Five post back in the day

I'll be back with my three later

Also, please feel free to expound on each choice

Fellini - apart from asking him about his movies, he just seemed like an interesting guy.

Tarantino - okay screw what anyone will say against this one. Maybe I would regret it really damn quick, but it seems like after hanging out with him I would probably go straight to the video store and rent a dozen movie that I'd never heard of prior to that night, most of which would kick ass. The only bad part would be that probably several times during dinner I'd think, "Why won't this guy shut the hell up for five seconds?!?" A fair price to pay, if you ask me.

The last is a tie between Kim Ki-Duk, just cause he's such an interesting director, and Kevin Smith, just because he's the one filmmaker who, in an informal setting, seems like he'd be very much okay as far as giving the real dirt about Hollywood...hell, in that case I probably wouldn't even bother asking him about any of his movies.

Yasujiro Ozu - 'Cause he's probably my favorite filmmaker and dude loved to drink.

Jules Dassin - Just seemed really down to earth. Made some of my favorite movies, too.

Frederick Wiseman - Seems really intelligent and incredibly insightful, and I'd like to ask him if he's seen The Wire and what are his thoughts on it.

Alternate - Agnes Varda - Seems like a charismatic and curious personality.



If we can include tv people, my 3 would be:

Ozu

Wiseman

David Simon - Always gives great interviews and I'd like to listen to what he and Wiseman would talk about.

Alternate - Long Ball Larry Fuckin' David.

These three just because I'd want to learn from them the most. Not necessarily because we'd have a great dinner together.

I'd walk into the restuarant from the back entrance, though the kitchen and shit, greeting everyone like Ray Liota in "Goodfellas"

Woody Allen would be hilarious.

We'd all be talking over each other, to different people and with overlapping dialogue like a scene from an Altman movie.

I'd learn everything I'd need to know on how to be a great filmmaker from these three.

Great writing, comedy, romance, violence, and style all rolled into one.

Martin Scorsese - To see if he really hates Niggers!

Because dude is a serious film wonk and would be good
to talk about films with.

Problem is, he's just not very good at making them.

He'd be an awesome film professor and/critic...some shit

I was gonna go w/Tarantino, but you have to consider the personalities at play. There's no way that a dinner w/Tarantino AND Spike would be anything but awkward at best and hostile at worst(and most probably)

With Kevin Smith you get the same Encyclopedic knowledge of film (at least as close as I want to go) plus someone who can converse with everyone else.
