Melisa’s Answer

Hi Bartholomew,

What a fun and unique question. Yes to Pranjal's answer! M.Night movies are so original and often surprising, i.e. "Signs."

I will add:

Movies "Forrest Gump" and "Castaway" directed by Robert Zemeckis. Anyone who can direct a single actor, stranded on a deserted island for most of the movie is pretty amazing, in my eyes.

Greta Gerwig directing "Lady Bird" and "Little Women (2019)."

Jon M. Chu directing "Crazy Rich Asians."

Wishing you success in your research.

Fernando’s Answer

If you want mind blowing directing go for Orson Welles or Andrei Tarkovsky.
Btw, Ridley Scott is amazing as Bleakney also said.
Have fun watching and writing.

Lucila’s Answer

Hi there,

I'm going to go broader here as all of the suggestions already given are really good examples. But something I saw recently that gave me insight on directing was the docuseries from HBO "One Perfect Shot" where directors explain their mind process and everything they needed to accomplish a specific shot in their movie. They literally go inside the shot they chose to give all the details behind getting it done. Your question reminded me of that.

Hope you enjoy!
