I’m actually getting pretty tired anyway, but I’ve outdone myself even better than this before. So I think I’ll call it a night and maybe answer some of the really interesting questions tomorrow. Thanks folks!
That’s a hard question. Are you talking about in terms of style? Content? Genre? Mode of adaptation? Writing?
I can list directors indebted to Stanley Kubrick or who exhibit traits that are “Kubrickian”
1. Paul Thomas Anderson (though he may be more indebted to Robert Altman than anyone else)
2. Gaspar Noé
3. Rob Zombie (honestly, see Halloween II and The Lords of Salem)
4. The Coen Brothers (some of their work, not all)
5. Nicolas Winding Refn
All the shootouts in every John Woo film ever. I think that covers 1-5.
See, the problem with “underrated” here is the tendency to list actors that may seem under-appreciated in their lack of visibility amongst a large multitude of moviegoers but still have performances that are not “underrated” (rated poorly). For example, I often see Sam Rockwell and Michael B. Jordan listed as “underrated” actors despite their well-received performances across their works. They’re not really “underrated.” Under-appreciated, maybe. Underrated, no.
What I’m trying to say is, I don’t know how to accurately answer this question.
There’s just so many modern Indian films coming out that it’s hard to keep up with it all, and there’s the difficulty with finding good subtitles. I do enjoy the works of Satyajit Ray though.
For what it’s worth, my favorite Batman comics are Dark Victory and The Long Halloween; The Dark Knight Returns at a close second place

1. James Stewart
2. Jack Nicholson

1. Gena Rowlands
