JB: Now, now, let's be accurate. On the subject of Welles, I will certainly plead guilty to a very high opinion of several of his films--but not all. Same with Scorsese--and as for Kubrick, I reserve the highest praise for only perhaps two or three.
I would put neither Visconti nor Antonioni on the same level as Bergman, for that matter. And just where do you cut Fellini's career?
As for Goddard: I thoroughly loathed Alphaville the first time I saw it. The second time I saw it, I found it an amusing conceit as a combination of bad noir mixed with bad science fiction. But hardly sublime.
If I have a pretty much unreserved admiration for anyone these days, it's probably Ruiz, and close to that for Resnais. Lots of individual films by others, of course.
So perhaps we can agree on the relatively narrow ground of Bergman and Resnais?
