What director has had the biggest impact on you?
Steven Spielberg... the sheer volume of beloved movies from my childhood that he directed make this a no-brainer.

One we did earlier on in the podcast... The Name of the Rose. It's a great medieval Sherlock Holmes-style mystery with Sean Connery and Christian Slater.
