Tarantino

Exploitation and sexploitation basically describes every film students' first projects. Only if the Oscar winner directed hardcore porn, which the blind does not say, would this attract any attention.

El Spielbergo

John Doe said...

I'm going with Tarantino, too. Exploitation themes seem to be an undercurrent in most, if not all, of his movies. Besides, he just looks like a freak and a pervert to me.

Guesser said...

@John Doe,probably why it isn't him,the Spielberg guess is good,since he would be the last person you would think, if not for recent blinds.

Alexandria Anna said...

Exploitation/sexploitation movies who are so underground that they would never get release, it sounds like something directed by Lucifer Valentine lmao. I think Tarantino might be too obvious...Peter Jackson at the beggining of his career was making gore movies "Bad taste", "Meet the Feebles" and "Braindead" and I'd never expect that when I was watching Lord of the Rings.

I'm going to go with James Gunn. He's been making a name for himself recently with GotG. He also used to write Troma films.

Alexandria Anna said...

I'd say Guillermo Del Toro or Christopher Nolan lol, because Shape of Water or Dunkirk are frontrunners for oscar.

Do Tell said...

Let's throw Martin Scorsese in there just for fun.

OB said...

Tarantino only won his Oscar for writing, not directing. The way this is worded it seems like a future Oscar winner as a director. I'll go Spielberg

Sunspirit said...

Just putting it out there, my guess is Oliver Stone. He gives off creepy, sleazy vibes.

sandybrook said...

The porn industry used to be centered in Manhattan until around 1980 or so. So I'm taking a NY based director and one nobody would suspect James Brooks or Jonathan Demme.

Eli Roth?

Low Key said...

NVM no Oscar for Roth.

Angela said...

It could be anybody.

Coppola's debut was a nudie. Actually, his first two movies were The Bellboy and the Playgirls, and Tonight for Sure, which are softcore. Yet, I would hardly categorize his later work as very sexual. So, any guy who was studying film in the seventies or eighties could have been hired for such a project before he became famous. I doubt it's Spielberg, as he started to work as a director in the TV industry in 1969, when he was 23. Hardcore became a genre years later.

David Howes said...

Many, many directors through the years have taken 'jobs' because it was a job.
Directing a porn film is still directing a film -- regardless of the screen content.

I think the 70's was full of rumor and innuendo of soon to be famous directors in the 80's had directed porn films.

Soft Talker said...

@Sandybrook - Jonathan Demme passed away, so doubtful it is him unless he is up for a posthumous oscar (in addition to his win for Silence of the Lambs).

Florin said...

@Sunspirit: Oliver Stone wrote Conan The Barbarian. I'd sign on to that as a possibility.

PhyllisWhitweed said...

I heard many years ago that Spielberg used to run camera for porn while in college.

Jeff Macauley said...

I think you're right about Spielberg. The porno would be the outtakes from that Night Gallery episode with Joan Crawford, who got her start in stag films. Kindred spirits.

my money is on Taratino

mw843 said...

As a lover of exploitation trash, I don't care who it is, I'm just hoping they'll be released.

BlissBoo said...

@Jeff Macauley, interesting info.

Karen Walker said...

@jeff macauley, how so with spielberg and joan crawford? The alleged crawford stag movie/s are from the better part of a century ago. And splicing some outtakes is editing not directing.

Karen Walker said...

Might add, the sexploitatin “school” is generally considered to be from the 60s and onward.

aanjheni said...

no clue

Maude Labowski said...

I'm loving these guesses, but I'm gonna throw Peter Jackson in the mix just to be different

sandybrook said...

I read this to say he won an Oscar in the future, not somebody yet to win one but will, so Demme won one before he died and I'm sticking to somebody NY based in the mid-70s.

Alexandria Anna said...

Oooh...now I understand, thank You Sandybrook for explaining. In that case wooow it could be anyone.

Clarisse McClellan said...

Jordan Peele, to be different.

Peele was born in NYC and attended school in Manhattan, which he later dropped out of. He's very talented and the blind is alluding to the fact the person (maybe a director now, maybe not), will win an Oscar in the future.

I also like this guess because the fantastic Get Out seemed to come out of nowhere by the "first time director".

Scandi Sanskrit said...

How convenient for directors that they get to detach (or at least distance) themselves from bad productions. Actors have their faces attached to the final product.

Surrender Dorothy said...

I must not have gotten to that part in Spielberg's HBO documentary yet. 🤣

Wes Craven made a porno in the 1970s involving a frozen fish. Didn't he win an Academy Award or two for "Music Of The Heart"?
