[Editor’s note: While your Flavorwire editors take a much-needed holiday break, we’re revisiting some of our most popular features of the year. This post was originally published August 10, 2011.] Earlier this summer, a shocking number of our readers flocked to read (andamend) our list of the harshest author-on-author insults in history. But you know who is even more childish, trifling, vindictive, and nasty than your favorite scribes? Your favorite filmmakers. These directors may not have quite the same precision with the written word as those rancorous authors, but when it comes to pettiness, they can’t be beat. After the jump, we’ll run down 30 of our favorite slights, slanders, and cheap shots from filmmakers both classic and contemporary; we’d love to hear yours in the comments.
why? well because some things are and some things are not. why? well because things that are not, can’t be. why? because then nothing wouldn’t be. you can’t have fucking nothing isn’t. everything is. why? because if nothing wasn’t there’d be fucking all kinds of shit that we don’t like giant ants with top hats dancing around. there’s no room for all that shit.
