The Weekly Discussion: The 30s in Cinema!
Last week in The Weekly Discussion, I tried to start a discussion about the 60s in cinema. Nothing happened. However, fortunately, I also provided a poll about who the most influential director of that era is, and nine people voted. It was a close tie: 2 people voted for Ingmar Bergman, 2 for Luis Buñuel, and 2 for Alfred Hitchcock. But the winner, with 3 votes, is Jean Luc-Godard. Well done! Also in the poll, who didn’t receive any votes, were Francois Truffaut, Louis Malle, Federico Fellini and Akira Kurosawa.
For the next 9 or so weeks, I’m going to focus on every decade of the 20th century (even 1900-1910) in random order and who the most influential director of those respective decades is. But you are the key ingredient… I need YOU to vote, and hopefully start up a discussion about the topic in the comments below. I didn’t expect this idea to catch on quick, but hopefully it will do so eventually, perhaps even this week.
This week the decade is… the 30s!
Here’s the poll:
Thanks for voting. Now, who wants to start this week’s discussion? Anything on your mind about the 30s in movie history you’d like to write? Now’s the time.
