Alfred Hitchcock.

Terry Gilliam.

Vittorio De Sica.

With a big shout out to Maurizio Nichetti his The Icicle Thief (Ladri di saponette) is one of my favourite films of all time and To Want to Fly (Volere volare) is great as well.

I don't really have 3 favourites but anything from Tim Burton or Hayao Miyazaki is usually pretty good.

1) Quinten Tarantino (although Once Upon a Time in America stunk)

2) David Lynch (I don’t fully understand his work, but I’m a fan)

3) John Waters (he consistently made laugh out loud movies - sadly, I think he’s retired from proper filmmaking)

Robert Rodriguez made a similar titled movie, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, and it's amazing. Loved it.
