    Directors:
    Stanley Kubrick
    Martin Scorsese
    Spike Lee
    Godard
    Fellini
    Woody Allen

    Actors:
    DeNiro (in the '70s)
    Hoffman (in the '70s)
    Pacino (in the '70s)

    Actresses:
    Diane Keaton (mainly in Woody Allen films, not in crap like Baby Boom... I guess that would also qualify as "in the '70s")

    There's nothing wrong with choosing the 70's as a favourite decade. Driving in this morning it occured to me how strong the sixties were with music and conversely the seventies with movies.

    Incidentally, that is anexcellent list of directors. I think I would add Bergman to your list and then it is complete. :)

    I'd argue that, compared to many, this still is his day. His performances on the screen hold the sort of reverance that people like Connery will never have.

    Paul Newman in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen ??I don't think so!!

    And did anyone actually pay money to see The Avengers?

    actually, i didn't mention any directors but i have to give quentin my nod

    when i saw pulp fiction i was mortified, but fascinated

    i got the same visceral reaction to quentin's "four rooms" but days later i thought about that movie and realized how brilliant it was...great movies make you think about it over and over and the story has layers and different points of view when one looks at it
