It’s difficult to begin a career. Every director has an own style of producing movies. And it takes time for that form to reach the audience in a filmmaker’s early years. You get to observe the filmmaker’s formative years in action, and you can plainly see their recognisable traits developing in their most basic state. Thankfully, YouTube has a lot of these movies available. Visit some of the filmmakers’ formative years now.
1. Death Proof (2007)
Director- Quentin Tarantino
The seasoned Hollywood stunt double, Mike McKay, abandons his black, souped-up 1970 Chevy Nova SS and ends up in Lebanon, Tennessee. There, he continues where he left off 14 months earlier after evading capture in Austin, Texas. This time, the crazy misogynist has set out to engage in a fascinating but risky game of cat and mouse with Abernathy, Zo, and Kim, three young ladies. The girls, however, are unwilling to give up without a fight. As there can only be one victor in this fast-paced race.
2. Spaced (TV Series, 1999-2001)
Director- Edgar Wright
In order to secure a cheap apartment, aspiring writers Daisy Steiner and Tim Bisley pose as a couple. Along the way, they encounter a cast of bizarre side characters. All including the couple’s neighbour, the gloomy and vaguely Krameresque painter Brian Topp, and the landlady, Marsha Klein, a depressed former rocker who is fixated on Brian.
3. Duel (TV Movie 1971)
Director- Steven Spielberg
David Mann is a typical family man who is travelling for work. Unfortunately, things only get worse when a huge gasoline tanker in front of him makes him drive more slowly than he would prefer. Mann becomes aware that he isn’t dealing with a typical road hog as the journey proceeds. Despite the fact that Mann can never see the trucker’s face, the driver quickly reveals himself to be psychopathic as he begins to run Mann off the road and fool or force him into a series of dangerous scenarios. Mann tries to get away from the vehicle as the terrifying journey goes on, but every time he believes he has, the truck shows up to terrify him even more. His realisation that escaping won’t help him and that he must take a stance and combat the crazed trucker comes at the end of the horrifying confrontation.
4. Doodlebug (1997)
Director- Christopher Nolan
A man is depicted frantically running across his apartment in Doodlebug, pursuing a tiny bug. Once he has it in his possession, the creature is shown moving exactly like him. A larger version of him squashes him after he has already been squished by it.
5. Bottle Rocket (1996)
Director- Wes Anderson
The aimless Anthony joins his friend Dignan, who appears to be far less sane than the former, after being released from a psychiatric hospital suffering a nervous breakdown. Dignan has devised a fanciful plan for an as-of-yet-undisclosed criminal spree that somehow involves his illustrious former boss, Mr. Henry. Anthony and Dignan pull off a job and travel, where Anthony falls in love with motel maid Inez, with the assistance of their pitiful neighbour and friend Bob. When our boys finally get together with Mr. Henry, the subsequent antics turn out to be far different than anyone had anticipated.
