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 standards

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

Person who tells the story through camera work and colors. He has been inspiration to many directors in India.

Stephen king has only directed one movie in his life and that's maximum overdrive.

70 Edgar Wright

Wright makes films for much more of a select audience then other directors, leading to less of a public reputation, but a deep love from his fans. Baby Driver might be the movie to broaden his popularity, but lets wait and see.

Comedies are so bland. Wright makes jokes out of the simplest things. It's amazing what he can do with film

71 Jean-Luc Godard
72 Mel Brooks

He directed such comedy classics as spaceballs and young frankenstein.

The Producers which coined the song Springtime for Hitler.

The Simpsons and he is at 57 - Sausagelover99

73 Luchino Visconti
74 Danny Boyle

Slumdog Millionaire, Millions, 127 Hours, Trainspotting. Hands down the greatest director of the last 3 decades. - tuckrayl

This man is responsible for such cult classics as Shallow Grave and Trainspotting

Unconventional may be the best word to describe him.
A way of directing in which you can expect the unexpected, plus a brilliant way of storytelling, Boyle makes films that get into your brain, and they won't get of it in a long long time
With his portrait of claustrophoby; comedy; and subtle, not dramatic, sentimentalism, Boyle has become one of the greatest of our generations, and a really underrated one along with Paul Thomas, Wes Anderson
127 Hours, Trainspotting, Sunshine, Slumdog Millionaire, and 28 Days Later are among his best films

75 John Ford

Made some of the greatest westerns stage coach my darling clementine and the searchers

76 Ang Lee

One of the all time great directors hands down.

One of the best directors in the world. The level of his diversity is on the level of Kubrick. All of his films have such beauty and sensitivity.

His most well known films include brokeback mountain, hulk, life of pi, and crouching tiger hidden dragon.

78 Alfonso Cuáron
79 William Wyler

Wake up you lot! William Wyler should rank in the top 3.

HELLO; IS ANYONE PAYING ATTENTION HERE?

His best known film is probably ben hur.

When you get a billion Oscar noms and you are only remembered for Ben Hur (1959). I think Damien Chazelle is following that route.
