Now, when a lot of us start to think of Hollywood we think of the best glamour and glitz of the famous lifestyles of some of the most famous actors and people throughout the film industry who work in major studios and have more money than they can possibly manage, and I think that for the most part when we think of Hollywood we are actually using pre conceived notions that are not actually the reality of what Hollywood is in Los Angeles, and a lot of people don’t even realize that Hollywood is actually a general area of the city of Los Angeles, and it is a pretty nice area of the city but it is also pretty sketchy with a lot of weirdo people and homeless people and drug addicts running around in the streets. It’s something that a lot of us don’t come to think about when the word Hollywood comes into our minds, especially this time of year when the Oscars are going on and everyone is seeing the biggest stars and celebrities on television giving their award speeches and being everything that everyone in the business wants to be but are simply just aimlessly aspiring towards these idealistic concepts in their minds that are not necessarily going to help them out in the long run because it almost seems like none of us ever have a chance at becoming one of the best directors of all time, and that is simply because it really does take a lot of hard work and even a lot of luck just to get recognized in the film industry, and I think a lot of people just don’t get it that it really is some of the hardest work that anyone can do and it takes so much money and a lot of times not that much money if any at all in return, and that means that for independent filmmakers making a movie is actually not even an investment but just hole that you put money into and then create art out of, which is cool to a certain extent, but when it comes to the major studios in Hollywood they are always going to be thinking of films as investments because no matter how creative the film industry gets it still is a business.
So for this website and articles being all about the film industry and the best directors and their work, you’ve definitely come to the right spot online if you are the type of person who appreciates great films and maybe wants to get in the industry because we are about to talk about some of the best directors that any aspiring filmmaker should study extensively and become more accustomed to so that they can later become a better director themselves out in the future.
So the next best director of all time that we are going to talk about is one of my all time favorites on this list, and that person just so happens to be Stanley Kubrick. Now Kubrick is definitely known for a bunch of different great stories that he directed, and what is so unique about Kubrick is that he was always on the cutting edge of technology and doing things that no one had ever seen before during his time of directing films. Of course some of his stories weren’t technology based but 2001 A Space Odyssey might be one of his best works and it was one of the best space movies ever created, and being created back in the 1960s makes this movie absolutely breathtaking, even still today. He also critiqued a lot of what was happening in the world and alluded to many different conspiracy theories through his work in subtle ways, but to be honest he still has always been considered one of the very best to ever direct a film and there’s a reason for that.
