Profile:

  • Often regarded as the greatest director of all time.
  • Meticulous and methodical on and off-set.
  • Favoured square shots with striking symmetry and elaborate use of primary colours.
  • Known for extensive re-takes.
  • Used elaborate tracking shots in key scenes.
  • Used popular or classical music for ironic contrast.
  • Had a preference for mono sound over stereo.
  • Would often separate the two halves to his films around different themes.
  • An irreverent sense of humour.
  • Was an ardent student of Billy Wilder and Orson Welles’ work.
  • Worked very closely with his stars during the shoot only to become inaccessible to them once the production was complete.
  • Maintained complete control over every aspect to his (post-Spartacus) movies from pre to post production. He even sent instructions to movie theaters specifying how to project and screen his prints.
  • Refused to explain the symbolism to his films so as to facilitate and maintain their post-modern interpretive qualities.
  • Maintained extreme secrecy in pre and even post production regarding the technical and conceptual details to his films.
