Alfred Hitchcock: Vertigo, now with 70% reduced misogyny! - Spellbound (1945)
Vincent Price: House on Haunted Hill might be a classic, but it’s also a snooze. How about a film that is either scary or hilarious? Entertaining regardless, just depends on how you feel about bugs. - The Tingler (1959)
Quentin Tarantino: If you liked Pulp Fiction, but have now realized you’re no longer 15 years old, here’s a movie with a hip new thing called character development. - Jackie Brown (1997)
Carol Reed: Okay, actually, you’re right, The Third Man is objectively a masterpiece. But you should also watch this. - Night Train to Munich (1940)
Jean-Luc Godard: Listen, everyone swoons over Breathless after undergraduate Global Film 101. It's a phase, and you'll grow out of it. If you like grit, arrogance, road movies, legendary directors, and French New Wave, may I suggest something a little heavier? - Vagabond (Agnes Varda, 1985)
