Greatest Film Directors of All Time
The Contenders: Page 3
Would be placed at the top of the list "Most underrated director of all times". It's a shame that he not in the top ten.
He has the most creative director in Telugu film industry. He can make any genre of films, the subject has to solid not star cast, that is what he believes in..
Rajamouli has the mind full of innovations n perfect screenplay which the movie viewer wanted to with great dedication n perfect planning the movies will n finalised by him.
One of best director the world ever seen. He doesn't know the word failure in his career. His movies are simply awesome they cannot express.
The perfectionist, gives his best for the movies, even the small things n all his movies are unique.V 17 Comments
Best directer in Indian cinema forever
Introduced many talents like Rajnikanth, Prakash Raj to Indian cinema. A great director!V 2 Comments
When you get down to it, George A. Romero seems like a wise old man.
The Movie-Titles speak for themselves: Repulsion, Rosemary's Baby, The Tenant, Chinatown, Tess, Frantic, The Ninth Gate, The Pianist, The Ghostwriter, etc.. Let's just ignore 'Hook'.
Dogville, Dancer in the Dark, Breaking the Waves. No more to say..
33 shocking. This man boasts an impeccable and awesomely eclectic track record. From the exuberance of Boogie sweep to the Broad sweeping drama of There will be blood. This man is a genius and he always collaborates with the best actors and draws the very best out of them. For me the best living director.
One of the best directors making movies now. Every movie is a classic. From Hard Eight to Inherent Vice, its amazing to see how he has evolved
There Will Be Blood and Boogie Nights are masterpieces. A modern day Kubrick.
The most truthful, touching and universally relevant films I have ever seen.
did I mention beautiful?
The indisputable 'King of Comedy'. 'Some like it hot', 'The apartment', One, Two, Three', 'The Fortune Cookie',etc.. And his dramas like 'Sunset Boulevard', Double Indemnity', 'the Lost weekend, 'Stalag 17', 'Ace in the Hole', etc are just as brilliant. Top 20-Director!
I love all of his movies. He was a real master of combining light comedy and emotional themes (see The Apartment for perfection at this. ) When you look at the quality of his movie catalog it is really staggering. - chambon
Billy wilder was a true master he didn't make pretentious crap that tried to be some thing they weren't. He made down to earth films with grace and modesty
This is a joke. Not even in the top 20?!?!?!? His work with both comedy and film noir is impeccable. Intellgient but not pretencious, funny but not a joke every 2 seconds. In a time where cinema as at it's fines,t Wilder was the finest of them all alongside Hitchcock, Kurosawa and Ozu. I guess his position goes to show that "Nobody is perfect" when it comes to voting. - DysenteryGaryV 3 Comments
His films from 80 years ago are still far better than most made todayV 1 Comment
If he would've not died so early.. He would've been one amongst the best classic director of Indian film industry.. All movies are novel based and brilliant narration mirrors the burning problems of the era and social messages in his movies are sensible.
Brilliant technically strong director.. All his movies are GEMS.. Re-made in almost all major Indian languages.
Very good movies came in Kannada film industry in his era. Many people got inspiration from his movies. I think he also should be in top 10 list.
The most talented Kannada movie director of all time. He was working as a driver on many sets and learnt about everything! Truly amazing talent.
The greatest director in Kannada. No one can meet his standardsV 6 Comments
He is the one who bought Kannada film industry a dimension of lyrics and dialogues Writting. Truly very talented. His lyrics will be the mixture of humour along with the message to the society. He was the one who made other writers to think once again.
He is different thinking director n also different body language
Hai sir your good and excellent in Kannada industry then your films are bombatt your films suitable hero is golden Star GaneshV 2 Comments
Always every time superb director of all film industry Ravi sir is the love king "nobody can live without love no one love live without Ravi sir", love means Ravi sir,
Definitely he should be awarded for his creativeness and screenplay. The best of is his attitude and respect mixed reactions to the women.
He is the one who doesn't cares about money when it comes to his films in the world
No one Can Beat himV 5 Comments
He should be top 5 at least. his first film Citizen Kane is considered the greatest movie of all time and was made in 1941. He also directed The Third Man which is also a wonderful film.
It's depressing that this genius is only number 96. At least Kubrick is deservedly very high.
Citizen Kane. That is all. - ILegitMakeLists

Keeping the Indian flag flying high all over the world for three decades is great achievement. He is the greatest living legend in India.

The great director in Indian film industry movie viswaroopam
He's the great legendV 1 Comment
Seriously this guy's movies are original and not duplicates of other flicks, Escape from NY (created Snake Plissken whose similarity is copied by protagonists in duke nukem, action man, metal gear and hoss del gado in Billy n Mandy), The Thing, Prince of darkness, StarMan, Vampires (which inspired van helsing), Ghosts of mars. And has also directed video games such as Fear 3, Dead Space, plus he is the cinematic director for God Of War 4 (2012)
His early works like 'Dark Star', 'Assault on Precinct 13', 'Eyes of Laura Mars', 'Halloween', 'Escape from New York' and 'Big Trouble in Little China' have all stood the test of time and remain great movies. Sadly, later films have mainly disappointed.
He's also a great composer, composing most of the music for his films (especially composing the Halloween theme song). he even has his own band called the Coupe De Viles.
