#108 Robert Aldrich Ranked List
I've got a huge list of directors who don't have a poll like this, so hopefully no one objects to a flood of new threads.
I've been enjoying this random ordering based on when the Director's Thread was created, so there's a little disappointment that this starts a lengthy run of Alphabetical Directors. Still, it's only 56 names which is a fraction of the overall list, so it maintains some randomness.
When I like Aldrich, he's my version of one of those uber-macho filmmakers like Sam Fuller or John Milius. He makes movies for guys who like movies, but he does care about women being half his potential audience, something you're not likely to say about Sam Peckinpah.
I've already done a pretty deep dive into Aldrich - probably why I have so many titles that aren't a shade of Green - but there are still a number I'm interested in. I already have Twilight's Last Gleaming
(1977) so that's definite. ICM suggests Hustle
(1975), which isn't highly rated on IMDB, but has a lot of interesting elements. The Grissom Gang
(1971) looks nuts, and stars the unusual Kim Darby. The Angry Hills
(1959) is also a possibility because of Robert Mitchum.
