I have no way of proving that most of these comparisons hold any weight. Lars Von Trier (Antichrist) has made his love for Dreyer known on many occasions, and it isn't completely out of left field to assume filmmakers like Ingmar Bergman & Tarkovsky (the generation that came after Dreyer) had some subconscious residue of influence. Ingmar Bergman has openly called Carl Theodor Dreyer an "amateur" yet at the same time he has also admitted that Dreyer's films "infected" him...

But beyond that, these are completely speculative (I doubt Sylvester Stallone, John Hughes or Charles Laughton set out to mimic or pay homage to Carl Theodor Dreyer in their respective works). I feel like I have to say that given the emotional & weirdly butt-hurt twitter cinephiles that get worked up over these movie comparisons (I know it's a crazy concept to accept that one filmmaker borrowed from another or that two unrelated moving images look similar when lined up next to each other)..

In this edition of The School Of Chantal Akerman (probably the last one I’ll be doing for a while) I draw comparisons to some strange & unexpected works like Spike Lee’s School Daze & Shane Carruth’s Upstream Color, alongside some more reasonable/believable filmmakers to draw influence from her work like Olivier Assayas & Bertrand Bonello.

Some of these may be a reach (with the exception of Safe which isn’t up for debate), but the films on the right still give me a serious subconscious Chantal Akerman vibe. 

Enjoy...
