V. is more fearless than any major director I can think of. He's been at the heights of big money filmmaking and still wasn't afraid to take the piss out of himself, whether inside his film or out. Glad to hear he has a new film and it sounds very interesting.
This is a wonderful list, but no Leni Riefenstahl? She's the most influential director of the 20th century. Not only did her films have wider world wide impact than any before or after, but she also invented and pioneered many of the basic shots and techniques that make up our language. No one has ever done propaganda as well. America still can't do it well - we have to have a 24 hour news cycle do it constantly because the US Government funds terrible crap like "Zero Dark Thirty". 'Olympia' should top the list.
lol these comments are amazing. so many anti-porn bots. It's like you attacked scientology by posting this light hearted porn fundraiser and now these ragers flooded out of the wood work. The chick and the dude are definitely over 18. Your statistics about 1 in 5 performers being under 18 is bullshit also. Your morality isn't universal, and they're following the law. Sorry. This is definitely filmmaking; porn is responsible for a huge amount of technical and creative leaps in the technology and not to mention the censorship of filmmaking.
groundbreaking considering the price - no one can really compete with that. incredibly cheap for the quality you get. I used the older version of this on action shoots and for more risky shots and I just broke my old version of it shooting on an incredibly steep grade in big bend national park. I will definitely be buying this new version.
I'm sorry but Jean-Luc Godard did it first, and he probably wasn't even the actual first.
