The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner Tony Richardson

8. Ipugni in tasca - Marco Bellochio, 1965.

9. These directors are largely familiar except perhaps Nanni Moretti, 'Dear Diary' 1994, and 'The Sons Room', 2001 and Chantal Akerman who has made an impressive number of films which challenge our perceptions both of life and cinematic form. I recommend 'Les Rendez-Vous d'Anna' as a starting point, which features a stunning performance by Aurore Clement and 'Jeanne Dielman' which is riveted together by Delphine Seyrig's disturbing presence.

10. Mandala Fille des Indes - I can find nothing to remotely match this title.

11. Mother India - Mehboob Khan, 1957.

12. Stephen Soderberg - First made a strong impression with 'Sex, Lies and Videotape', 1989, and has since established a solid reputation with films like 'Erin Brockovich', 2000.

13. Remember My Name - Alan Rudolph, starring Geraldine Chaplin, 1978.

14. Takeshi Kitano - Japanese director whose films usually have a violent edge which is mediated by acute human insights. For instance 'Sonatine', 1993 and 'Hana-Bi', 1997.
