15 DIRECTORS

Filed under: Uncategorized — celinejulie @ 12:32 am

The Rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen Directors who’ve influenced you and that will ALWAYS STICK WITH YOU. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag fifteen friends, including me, because I’m interested in seeing what artists my friends choose. (To do this, go to your Notes tab on your profile page, paste rules in a new note, cast your fifteen picks, and tag people in the note.)

(I was tagged by Peter Nellhaus for this.)

My own rules:

I don’t want to repeat the names of the directors already mentioned in the two links below, so I ended up making a list of interesting directors I just knew recently:

  1. The word “Masses” in the title of the film THREE MURMURED MASSES refers to missa or a Catholic religious event.

    If I remember it correctly, THREE MURMURED MASSES is a very funny TV film about a priest in France 300-400 years ago. He lived in a rural village, and he had to pray for a religious ceremony. But while he was going to pray in his church in front of the villagers, he felt so hungry that he tried to say all the prayer as fast as possible. He wanted the prayer to finish as quickly as it could, so that he could start eating. But because he didn’t say his prayer correctly, the God put a curse on his soul for a hundred years or something like that.

    I like this film very much, partly because it reminds me of many Thai low-comedies about Buddhist monks. THREE MURMURED MASSES unintentionally shows us that you can do a great comedy/satire about monks/religious beliefs, but you don’t have to make it as low-standard as some Thai films.
