Great Directors

Rated NR 86 minutes 2010

Angela Ismailos, a New York socialite and owner of Anisma Films, makes her writing-directing debut with this entertaining but slender documentary overview of “my favorite directors”: Bernardo Bertolucci, Catherine Breillat, Liliana Cavani, Stephen Frears, Todd Haynes, Richard Linklater, Ken Loach, David Lynch, John Sayles, and Agnès Varda. As usual with this type of omnibus, it’s loaded with clips that spur us to rediscover Ismailos’ subjects. Also as usual, we wonder how and why she arrived at her list. She obviously has great access, but the project could be anyone’s masters thesis – it offers no special critical insight, just a quick peek and a chat with the filmmakers (90 min.).
