just to name a few.
Pier Paolo Pasolini
As in have their own account with their own favorite films listed
uh, that ain’t the real scorsese
If it’s not actually him, it’s one of his representatives. He’s partnered with this site to help showcase rare films as part of his ongoing project in restoration and archiving.
You honestly believe Martin Scorsese would be on this site? Come on…
“WHICH FILM DIRECTORS BESIDES SCORCESE ARE ON THE AUTEURS..”
There’s quite a few. I have no idea how many big name people are on here but even if you discount those who haven’t had there film play anywhere for money there’s probably a bunch of people who could be reasonably called filmmakers by any definition.
The two somewhat famous people I know of that frequently post are Frank Tomasulo and Jesse Richards.
I’m sure there are some big name directors on here who have aliases to remain hidden. I have a hard time believing that at least some A-list directors have never navigated this site. I mean its essentially their career. I’m sure they’re curious to see what comments have been made about their films.
Sally Potter is, if that’s really her.
Sally Potter needs to pimp her profile. It would be fun if some of the filmmakers would come here and discuss their films with us philistines.
I think we all know five years from now there will be plenty famous filmmakers on here.
If that’s the case, can any of you make me a future loan for $100 [or the equivalent thereof at a later date?]
Yeah, and I’m gonna say “hey I used to argue about Fat Girl with that kid on The Autheurs, he’s a dick. And that guy never payed me back my 100!”
But S, by then you’ll have taken the poetry world by storm.
You’ll have more than enough money, trust me.

Probably not, actually.
The internet is a cesspool and it takes a lot of patience to wade through it.
I’ve thought about canceling my account here for this very reason—I simply don’t have the time to keep up with things (and yet here I am, posting anyway, against my better judgement).
Also, something to keep in mind: “famous” or “established” directors already get quite a lot of feedback on their work from other sources, aside from people they actually meet and or know in person. You’ve got to remember that there’s already quite a lot of writing on film outside the realm of message boards—-probably way too much.
I strongly doubt that someone like Carlos Reygadas is so starved for feedback and attention that he wakes up one morning and says, “Golly gee, I wonder what users Poopeater86 and Gregory L. Fancypants on The Auteurs have to say about that film that I spent years of my life making.”
I don’t mean to sound defeatist, but the reality is that message boards exist almost solely for the benefit of the people who post on them…and almost all of those people are nerds.
Berjuan: I’ve never seen Fat Girl though! :O
I was talking about that kid Drew. :P
Berjuan: But he wasn’t the one askin’ for the loan. ;)
I put a period in there Josh. I know starting a sentence with And is not good. But…
Berjuan: Ah I misread your statement. I apologize profusely. :P
I know that Werner Herzog and Ramin Bahrani are also members of ours. Don’t bother looking for Herzog though.
Werner Herzog doesn’t even know what IMDb is tho ;-)
There are hundreds of directors on The Auteurs, but most of them remain anonymous and/or inactive…
