Paul Thomas Anderson vs. Quentin Tarantino
Two great friends and in my opinion the only two writer/directors talented enough to be compared to each other...
I've been on a huge PTA kick recently - and I've been on a QT kick for about eight years. Although these two guys are of course completely different and blazingly original talents, all of their features show two filmmakers steeped deeply in knowledge of cinema history.
I could never choose between my two favorite filmmakers of all time, but perhaps The Master (my most anticipated film of the year) vs. Django Unchained (#2) later this year will shed some light on this incredibly sticky subject.
Let the discussion of two geniuses begin.
