21. Howard Hawks
Chris Fujiwara

More than any other director, Howard Hawks defined what is still considered the quintessence of American classical cinema: a moral cinema of adventure, in which people define themselves by their actions within a rigorously defined visual universe. Adventure, for Hawks, can mean tension and anguish, or it can mean the pleasurable and sometimes dangerous exploration of the unknown and the unpredictable aspects of human relationships - Hawks's favorite terrain, and the area to which he gives his deepest attention.
