    In recent years foreign directors are getting most of the awards in the Best Director category in oscars. This year also that can happen again. So I have made a list of some talented directors from around the globe. So, what your views about that.

    1. Xavier Dolan (Canada)
    2. Jacques Audiard (France)
    3. Hou Hsiao-Hsien (Taiwan)
    4. Pablo Trapero (Argentina)
    5. Jia Zhangke (China)
    6. Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Turkey)
    7. Hirokazu Kore-eda (Japan)
    8. Cristian Mungiu (Romania)
    9. Jafar Panahi (Iran)
    10. Anurag Kashyap (India)
    11. Ernst Wilhelm Wim Wenders (Germany)
    12. Brillante Mendoza (Philippines)
    13. Nanni Moretti (Italy)
    14. Carlos Reygadas Castillo (Mexico)
    15. Park Chan-wook (South Korea)

    Your list is decent (although lacking in female directors) but that first name simply doesn’t belong there. He’s a total hack.

    I would add Christian Petzold and Martel

    Kleber Mendonça Filho really impressed me with Aquarius.

    I know a few things about his next film that I can’t share but it’s far from something the Academy (and that conservative branch) would ever dream about embracing

    For this year I would be ecstatic if the director’s branch corrected the egregious error the Foreign Language Film committee made and nominated Robin Campillo for Best Director for BPM (Beats per Minute) (:

    Everyone keeps telling me that Xavier Dolan is a pretentious idiot but I’ve never seen any of his movies so I can’t say for sure. You didn’t like Mommy? I thought that was very acclaimed? Overrated, you think? Why don’t you like his movies?

    Bong Joon-ho From Korea. Kind of loved Okja though it will probably miss out on the oscars

    I used to be a convinced Dolan fan, but I’m realizing I’ve been overrating him for a long time. I still think he’s talented, though. Knowing some of Gus’ tastes and opinions, I had no doubts he wouldn’t like him, lol.
    Starting to know some of your tastes too, I think you might not like him either. He’s technically gifted, but sometimes his obsession for stylisation ruins the other aspects of the movie, making it seem and sound quite senseless. I would still affirm that Laurence, Anyways is a great film, though. And Mommy, while not deserving of that acclaim, still was a good film.

    Apichatpong Weerasethakul
    Claire Denis
    Leos Carax

    and I echo Jafar Panahi…I don’t understand how This is Not a Film got so far to make the Documentary shortlist but still not have gotten nominated.
