Imagine—your life is becoming a movie. Who’s playing you? What’s the rating? Do you pen in a love story, or keep it as real (and single) as possible? Before you get started, though, you have to pick a director, the film's ringmaster. One mastermind-for-hire is Steven Spielberg, who already has award-winning biopics in his repertoire; the other is Quentin Tarantino, who will revamp your onscreen story to one filled with obscure references, fetishes, and swear words. Which would you choose?

With Steven Spielberg behind the lens, you’ll get more of a variety in film. The man has directed everything from alien friendships to war dramas to futuristic gaming scenarios. If you don’t want your life pigeonholed into just one type of genre, Spielberg’s sure to deliver the goods.

Spielberg also has some pretty impressive pals. The man is friends with no other than George Lucas, who, for those of you who don’t know, created this thing called “Star Wars.” Other honorable mentions are Brian De Palma—director of the original “Carrie”—who also gave Lucas a pretty iconic point of direction

Aside from the class and detail Spielberg brings to his storytelling, one of his most important characteristics is his reverence for childhood; it's what makes his films so imaginative and perennially fresh. Audiences ages three to eighty-five will surely be fans of your biopic.

Maybe you want edge. Maybe you want grindhouse aesthetics. Maybe, most importantly, you want Samuel L. Jackson. If any or all three of these credentials are what you’d like to see in your biopic, Quentin Tarantino is your director of choice. 

#DirectMeTarantino

Tarantino’s a filmmaker for mature audiences, so if you’re okay with well-placed F-bombs and sexploitation callbacks then, by all means, let the man take control of your life’s story. He’ll have to have a cameo, for sure, and there will more likely than not be a close-up of a foot at one point.

Tarantino claims that he’ll retire as soon as he’s finished his tenth film, so make sure you book him fast. It's a good move, when you think about it: He either dips out on top, or lives to see himself become Tommy Wiseau
