I love David Fincher as well. I thought The Social Network was really excellent, and who doesn't love Fight Club? P.T. Anderson's films are always quite stunning as well (I'm assuming you mean him and not Wes Anderson, who I also like). Danny Boyle is such a wonderful chameleon-like director, which is probably my favorite thing about him. He is able to make just about any genre of film with true elegance. Some critics think of this a bad thing, saying that he doesn't have a person style or that he's not a true 'auteur".
Anywho, I clearly agree with most of your movie tastes, so bravo :)
Humm, I don't really have favorite writers/directors, but I do have favorite films and actors. My major was Cinema and Screen Studies at my local community college. I finished this December. I've always wanted to act, but I'm also very into movies and filmmaking. My taste is kinda all over the place, I would say some of my favorites are:
-Jeux d'enfants (Love Me If You Dare in english version)
-Its a french film from 2003 directed by Yann Samuell, staring Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet. I even bought a merry-go-round tin because of it. (Anyone who sees it will know what that means). These two kids become friends and begin a big game of dare. As they grow older the dares become more.....sadistic? in a way and over take their lives. They won't admit their feelings for each other and it blows out of control. The cinematography is really cool. Very vibrant colors. Spans a lot of time, the ending is very open to interpretation. Its definitely one of my all time favorites. I really love Marion Cotillard as an actress. Plus I love the french language. Took it for 3 years in high school, can barely speak a word of it, but damn it sounds cool!
-Leon (also known as The Professional or Leon: The Professional)
-Its a 1994 film, directed by Luc Bensson, Natalie Portman's debut film at age 12 and also staring Jean Reno. Natalie plays a girl named Mathilda whose whole family gets shot after her dad botches a drug deal. Leon, is her neighbor and an assassin and he opens his door, thus saving her life. She makes him train her to be an assassin to get back at the guy who killed her family. They become each others families. Its pretty much action/drama. Great acting by Natalie. I'm not usually an action movie girl, but I love this one.

The film the audience is watching is not the same ... So far the films have been mediocre at best and I'm struggling to stay awake.
