some quotes....

I just want to tell you, I'm the one who was supposed to take care of everything. I'm the one who was supposed to make everything okay for everybody. It just didn't work out like that. And I left. I left you... And now, I'm an old broken down piece of meat... and I'm alone. And I deserve to be all alone. I just don't want you to hate me.

The Greatest Directors Ever - by Total Film (P. 1)


Trang Total Film có danh sách 100 đạo diễn vĩ đại nhất mọi thời khá hay và chính xác, không bị nghiêng quá về bên (nghệ thuật/thương mại) nào. Kèm với mỗi đạo diễn là một phim được coi là hoàn hảo nhất, đặc trưng nhất cho phong cách của họ, danh sách này cũng được làm tốt, phim được chọn đúng theo chất lượng chứ không theo danh tiếng (ví dụ Total Film chọn cho Lý An The Ice Storm chứ không phải là Brokeback Mountain).

Từ 100 đến 60 (không hiểu thiếu đâu mất 10 người):
My choice là lựa chọn của cá nhân tôi.
