FILMS WHERE THE DIRECTOR PLAYED THE LEAD CHARACTER

FILMS WHERE THE DIRECTOR PLAYED THE LEAD CHARACTER by James Devereaux

Once again, I reached out to the Distracted community to make a new list. Once again, the suggestions were many, varied and often surprising (Depardieu as director?).

I’ve tried to limit it to one film per filmmaker, except in those cases where demand has proved irresistable.

Some titles are not listed on MUBI, such as my personal favourite; “Johnny Nobody” which saw the great Nigel Patrick direct and take the lead.
