Taste of Cinema's the 15 Best Movies Made by Directors Over the Age of 75

Taste of Cinema Description
In 2012, in the midst of an infamous interview with Krishnan Guru-Murthy on the Django Unchained press tour, he stated that "directors are like boxers, they have their time." A statement that, whilst harsh, is nowhere near as cutting Tarantino's previous assertion, espoused in a televised appearance with singer Fiona Apple, that films directed by ageing directors felt like "films made by men who can't 'get it up' anymore."
Sadly, history is not often kind to the ageing director either.
Yet, as with most generalities, there are exceptions. As such, their very existence as exceptions to a rule make them inherently interesting, as the creative mind is often drawn to that which may be odd or unusual. Whether they represent the last film offered by their respective directors or not, these 15 films represent the glorious last gasps of creative geniuses refusing to go quietly, and doing so in a way that is glorious to witness.
