Holy triumvirate of film nerd worship = Nolan, Villeneuve, Fincher

(All of whom have made movies I like FYI. What a shame the nihilism is wearing off.)

I can see the link you're getting at here. Never saw it before presumably cos it was so big and expensive and explosiony.
Not exactly the same of course but they do have the same furrowed-brow self-importance which is justified to some extent by the quality control they exert on their films but which at the same time is their common weakness which undermines their claim to that.

Apparently the guy who did The Lobster - Yorgos Lanthimos - is adapting My Year of Rest and Relaxation.

Id put Coen Bros in there instead, I feel like No Town Country for Old Men, True Grit etc are real nerd canon (but in a good/better way)

That's a good choice yeah

No country for old men is the greatest IMO IMO

Ultimate film nerd triumvirate: tarkovsky, fassbinder, some other eurobore

Bergman I guess

I feel like however nerdy and superior you get about film (or anything) there's always an even more nerdy and superior nerd out there to splutter in indignation and say "you like godard?!" or whatever

Craner e.g. will snort in your face for liking anything not made in Italy featuring big wobbly jugs and a razor slicing a throat in lurid technicolour
