I have been watching Tarkovsky films lately and I am happy to rave about this Russian director to anyone who will listen. Some of his films: Solaris, Stalker, Andrei Rublyov
He structures his films with interesting juxtapositions and allows the story to be told non linearly and visually. Amazing cinematography. He has written a classic about directing called Sculpting in Time - a really interesting read if you want to find a different way of telling a story to the conventional understandings. His way of making films allows for more than a simple story to be told - that allows for glimpses of the inner workings of the characters and to reveal metaphysical and philosophical concerns.
