Great Director Misfires

Taking liberal inspiration from Lou (, I decided to have a crack at this myself, though with no month long time limit. Rather, I intend the weave these in over the next month or so as and when, taking in at least three a week. I've gone for a slightly cock-eyed approach too, featuring directors from the grand tradition of Art House as well as Hollywood, and tried to get a good spread of decades too. Everyone makes a strange flop once in a while, a film that is an ugly duckling in the CV. A lot of them were made in the 70s. Maybe it was the hair. In any case, here's to an excellent idea, liberally stolen from someone better!
