181 Frank Capra Frank Capra Frank Russell Capra, born Francesco Rosario Capra (May 18, 1897 – September 3, 1991) was an Italian-American film director, producer and writer who became the creative force behind some of the major award-winning films of the 1930s and 1940s. Born in Italy and raised in Los Angeles from the age of more.

Frank Capra is one of my favorite directors. his movies are able to get humor out of the little elements of life that we take for granted.

He has given many classic movies... They are very old but will be enjoyable even today... Especially MEET JOHN DOE

He was just a great person and director - he had a love for people. Hard to find now days.

He directed so many brilliant movies, but certainly gave us the most beautiful Christmas-Movie of all time - 'It' a wonderful life'. For that alone, he should be in the Top 20.

182 M. Night Shyamalan M. Night Shyamalan Manoj "M. Night" Shyamalan is an American film director, screenwriter, producer, and actor known for making movies with contemporary supernatural plots and twist endings.

I don't care what people say, I like his movies. The Sixth Sense and The Village are two of my favorite movies of all time. Signs and Unbreakable were awesome. The Happening, that was only ruined by Mark Walberg's Acting. Lady in Water I admit was a big misfire. I haven't seen After Earth yet, but I plan to.

GREAT science fiction director! Directed Signs, Lady in the Water, The Village, and tons more.

The Sixth Sense was a masterpiece.

He has scripted some of farcical and marvelous movies such as Unbreakable, Split, The happening, The Visit, The Sixth sense, and to name a few�"�.

'True Romance', 'Man on Fire', 'The Taking of Pelham 123' and 'The Hunger', just to mention a few, are all excellent movies, therefore T. Scott should be higher up.

'Insignificance' is one of the most over-looked masterpieces of modern cinema.

'Tommy' and 'The Devils' are groundbreaking movies. 'Altered States', 'Crimes of Passion' and 'Mr Nice' are totally underrated, but excellent films, too.
