    Default Which director would film your life?

    This happened to me yesterday. @bg


    Your result for The Director Who Films Your Life Test ...
    Ingmar Bergman

    Your film will be 49% romantic, 40% comedy, 77% complex plot, and a $ 99 million budget.

    Your life will be portrayed on film as an intense psychological drama, likely with some actresses screaming at the camera (Persona), or maybe a pleasant chess game between the Grim Reaper and a Crusader (The Seventh Seal). This Swedish director's films are intensely scrutinzed and studied in colleges all over the world to this day. This means that most Americans still don't understand his films! Still alive, he released in the U.S. in 2005 his first film in 23 years (Saraband), and he can still take on one more project to make your film biography. If curious, start with his films Wild Strawberries and Smiles of a Summer Night.




    Your Analysis (Vertical line = Average)



    • You scored 49% on action-romance, higher than 93% of your peers.

    • You scored 40% on humor, higher than 56% of your peers.

    • You scored 77% on complexity, higher than 82% of your peers.

    • You scored 99% on budget, higher than 100% of your peers.

    Your result for The Director Who Films Your Life Test ...
    Sofia Coppola

    Your film will be 64% romantic, 25% comedy, 50% complex plot, and a $ 39 million budget.
    With few films under her belt (The Virgin Suicides, Lost In Translation, Marie Antoinette, Somewhere) as a writer/director, she's already highly respected and connected -- her dad, Francis, directed all The Godfathermovies and Apocolypse Now. Sofia's good at making the romantic drama that is your life with poignant sullen moments of introspection. You saw how she stylishly handled Marie Antoinette's life, no? And who didn't have at least a lump in the throat at the end of Lost In Translation? She's already won one Academy Award for her writing, now she'll be the first woman to receive one for directing -- YOUR FILM!


    Your Analysis (Vertical line = Average)


    • You scored 64% on action-romance, higher than 99% of your peers.

    • You scored 25% on humor, higher than 8% of your peers.

    • You scored 50% oncomplexity, higher than 22% of your peers.

    • You scored 39% on budget, higher than 22% of your peers.

    I know it's just a stupid okcupid test, but they didn't ask about any of the stuff that would make my life a good movie! *grumbles about them saying that my life isn't interesting enough for a movie*

    You should have been honest about the "probing".

    Mike Nichols

    Your film will be 19% romantic, 25% comedy, 75% complex plot, and a $ 58 million budget.


    One of the best directors in film alive today. Every picture he has made has been a classic: The Graduate, Working Girl, Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?, Closer, Carnal Knowledge, What Planet Are You From?, Primary Colors, Silkwood, The Birdcage, etc. Every actor scrambles to be able to work with him, and now he is gonna make your life into a classic film. Hold your head up, and hope he gets Natalie Portman in your film somewhere.

    Roger Corman


    Your film will be 17% romantic, 40% comedy, 77% complex plot, and a $ 52 million budget.


    An action-complex tale about a complex character that is you. Corman was responsible for a very early Jack Nicholson film, 1963's The Terror (Francis Coppola was associate producer), filmed in three days! The actor who plays you will emote complexity like Jack ... maybe Christian Slater or Gwyneth Paltrow. Also, Roger filmed the original Little Shop of Horrors film -- which in the 1980s was the basis for a hit Broadway musical and another film. All his films were shot for mere thousands of dollars, sometimes completed within the week. Roger knows talent, and knows how to keep costs down with complex stories such as your life story. His versions of Edgar Allen Poe stories are considered classics (The Raven, The Pit and the Pendulum), and also directed Deathsport and Bloody Mama in the 1970s. Oh, yeah, man, this guy will make your film a cult classic!

    @point, business proposal: maybe we can unite our biographies in one movie, to cut the budget in half and make the plot double as horrific .
