    Interesting that Kurosawa and Ozu have come up so far, but not Mizoguchi.

    I'll take an abnormally long life, sure. And comedy's better than tragedy (in lives, not necessarily in movies).

    I really want a scene of me washing the dishes in it. That would really make me happy.

I would go with Jonathan Demme.
    Sounds like you need Steven Soderbergh!

    I think I decided that I would like for Kevin Smith and Paul Thomas Anderson to co-direct the film version of my life.

    This thread is reminding me of the best Pavement lyric of all time: "You've been chosen as an extra in the movie adaption of the sequel to your life"

    I've noticed a number of people picked directors more on what their life is like objectively than what they'd like their life to be like or how they perceive it to be and what filmmaker they think would best capture that. I did more of the latter in the OP. If I had to pick realistically I'd say Todd Solondz.

    In other words, Ivy, going for Kurosawa or Coppola wouldn't have been a bad move. I just never pegged you as an Apatow kind of gal is all.

    On second thought, maybe Solondz is too harsh!

    He might work. Cameron Crowe would work. If we're going dead directors, Jean Renoir all the way.

    Okay, I'll answer seriously for once:

    Ingmar Bergman because he could take the plainness of the surface of my life and see through it to the underlying connection to the human condition as a whole, and he'd be able to portray my life as the beautiful, ambivalent, symbolic, bittersweet dance that I see it as.
