    Out of the 3 it's Scorsese. It's a very close call between Tarantino and Nolan. Nolan has made my favourite movie ever but I'd just give the edge to Tarantino for now

    Nolan best director in Hollywood?

    How the standards have fallen.


    I am not one of you. I never was. I am not one of them either.

    Fincher and Dennis Villeneuve are up there too out of the current directors. Dennis is so underrated. He's one of the best current directors. He's made a crazy amount of amazing movies in a row and all different genres.

    Isn't versatility a very important component of being considered the greatest ?

    Otherwise we could say that the director of the greatest film would be the GOAT director . I think that movie is usually a toss up between Citizen Kane, vertigo, The Godfather and Shwashank redemption (to name a few) . Look at those directors pf tjose films, out of them only Hitchcock and Coppola are shout outs to be GOAT directors.

    A cricketing analogy of what you have describe would be that only all-rounders should be considered for the greatest cricketers of all times since they are good in both batting and bowling unlike specialist batsmen or bowlers who can only be great in one category of the game. A fair argument for argument sake but we can all agree that some of the best cricketers (Bradman, Tendulkar, Warne) in the world were not all-rounders.

    As for the crown for GOAT going to the director of the greatest films. I think the directors of all the movies that you have listed other than Shawshank Redemption should be in the running for GOAT unless you have less regard for Orson Wells.

    Its hard to look at Orson Wells career and not get awe-struck on how much he achieved at such a young age and how single handedly he transformed theatre (at age 22 he was on Broadway producing, directing and starring in an adaptation of Julius Caesar that broke all performance records for the play and gave him the cover of Time magazine), radio (The legendary "War of the Worlds" broadcast) and of course movies.

    He was only 25 when he directed, produced, co-wrote the screenplay and starred in perhaps the greatest movie of all times. It's considered highly influential and its cinematography, lighting, and flashback structure have impacted generations of movies and film makers. Nolan is being talked about in this thread, the plot structure of Memento has its root in Citizen Kane. I can go on and on but you get the point.

    Leonardo da Vinci could have only made Mona Lisa and still would have been in the consideration for the greatest painters of all times. Its hard to replicate genius even for geniuses.

    All are famous in their own right.

    But I dont get Tarantino's movies. I prefer Nolan as he makes the movies that I want to watch and takes it to another level.
