The Piano

Writer-director, Jane Campion made history in 1993 when she became the first woman to win the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

Halloween

Producer Irwin Yablans originally called it The Baby-Sitter Murders, and put up $325,000. Under John Carpenter’s direction, Halloween made over $70m.

The Truman Show

The Truman Show may credit its story as an original screenplay, but it is uncannily similar to several sci-fi TV shows from as far back as the 60s.

Bullitt

With Steve McQueen in the title role, a legendary car-chase and a score by Lalo Schifrin, Peter Yates’ Bullitt still oozes as much cool now as it did in 1968.

The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson

Great filmmakers have recurring themes and styles, but Anderson is unique because he continually explores new themes and styles.
