Movies Every Cinephile Has Seen
Cinephile was coined by The New York Times critic Frank Rich, in a pejorative way, as "the pathological longing of Americans, no matter how talentless, to be on television". Throughout the history of cinema, there have been numerous directors who developed their understanding of cinema through filmgoing and participation in cinephile communities and organizations instead of within the formal settings of either a film school or a film studio. Directors who began as cinephiles include Sofia Coppola, Guillermo del Toro,Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol, François Truffaut, Satyajit Ray, Quentin Tarantino, Jacques Rivette, Ed Wood, André Téchiné, Pedro Costa, Francis Ford Coppola, Brian De Palma, Paul Thomas Anderson, Wim Wenders, Wes Anderson, Éric Rohmer, Martin Scorsese, Aki Kaurismäki, the Wachowski sisters, the Safdie and Coen brothers, Nicolas Winding Refn, Noah Baumbach, Edgar Wright and Ari Aster.
