    David Cronenberg was awesome until entering the 1990s. In fact it's shocking how he got the most recognition for his shittiest move "A History Of Violence"

    Everyone mentioned here has done good work. Crowley is catastrophically wrong about Carpenter. Prince of Darkness rivals any of the great Italian horrors and the thing is one of the greatest monster films of all time. Halloween is massively overrated though.

    Kubrick had one of the great runs of modern cinema - Strangelove/2001/Clockwork Orange/Barry Lyndon/Shining.

    Not such of a fan of Lynch but he has his moments.

    Is Carpenter in the "respectable Canon" at all?

    I always thought of him as a very good genre director and can't really remember those typical "canon guys" (=the "respectable movie critics") bigging up Carpenter, either.

    I've suffered the misfortune of being forcefed some of these and they are indescribably awful.

    Lol, they're all amazing. He hasn't seen any of them. I made him watch Nightmare City once, maybe a bit of Rabid Dogs.
