? ----- -----


1 Answer 1


I think the missing director is

M. Night Shyamalan


Given the spaces, the movies for each director are

David Fincher - FIGHT CLUB
Ebrahim Irajzad - SEARING SUMMER
Lee Philips - THE SPELL
Fanny Ardant - STALIN'S COUCH

Each of these movies contains a word which is one letter different from one of the classical five senses, in order - SIGHT, HEARING, TASTE, SMELL, TOUCH.

So the last movie must be THE SIXTH SENSE
