The Weekly Discussion: The 20s in Cinema!

Hey everyone, and welcome to The Weekly Discussion. Last week I asked you who the most influential director of the 1980s was. It generated quite some discussion, and the results were quite close. In third place, with 4 votes, is John Hughes. In second, with 5 votes, is Steven Spielberg, and the winner, with six votes, is Martin Scorsese. Thanks for voting, everyone.

We only have three decades left to poll you on, so please vote in each poll if you can, especially since the remaining decades aren’t ones that are very well known in general. They are the 1900s, the 1920s and the 1940s. This week we are doing the 1920s. Here is the poll: 

Thanks for voting, everyone. If there’s anything you’d like to add about the poll or this subject, please leave a comment below.

  1. the man with the montage named after him for sure. but only because i couldn’t decide when lang had the most influence in his career. can you believe that bunuel was making movies for so many decades? the changes he must’ve experienced as a film maker are astounding

  2. I voted for Fritz Lang but I was also thinking about his work in the 30’s and 50’s. My second choice would have been F.W. Murnau. Malick wouldn’t exist without him.
