102John Huston

From his directorial debut, 'The Maltese Falcon' to dozens of total classics (Treasure of Sierra Madre, Key Largo, Asphalt Jungle, African Queen, Moby Dick, The Misfits, Night of the Iguana, The Mackintosh Man, The Man who would be King, Prizzi's Honour and his last, The Dead) he covered most genres, unfortunately, even musicals, with the terrible 'Annie' (one of very few mistakes). Also, a talented screenwriter, an incredible actor and father to Anjelica Huston, he had an impressive career of over 65 years.

103Michael Mann
104Jean Renoir

It truly upsets me that no one up till me even thought of Renoir. His films are not only technically masterful, but they are so full of human emotion and truth and brilliance that they transcend all film criticism. No director has ever shown humans as truthfully and honestly as Renoir.

What A Joke Renoir Is The Boss The Wisest Man to Make films, the teenagers & 20 something's who vote for populist hacks, haven't a clue about cinema.

105Alejandro G. Iñarritu

Iñarritu is quickly paving his way into the list of great directors, especially over recent years with The Revenant and Birdman. I can't wait to see what he has in store next.

Silver linings playbook is amazing! So is American hustle. His directing techniques are amazing and timeless. He maked you feel warm and comfortable and as if you have been friends forever. He will take the time to talk to you and that is a making of an amazing director

It was starting from his works that I acknowledged movies as an art of a director, mastermind, not just a play by an actors
