105 Guillermo del Toro

Guillermo del Toro's filmography is varied and each one of his projects is exciting in their own way. Pan's Labyrinth and The Devil's Backbone prove that he is a master of mixing the fantastical with the dramatic, balancing childlike wonder with paranoia and challenging situations; they delve deep into the emotional core of mythology and fairy tales with their haunting beauty and eerie performances and on the side, they possess an incredible understanding of the tragedies often faced by real children and how they react to them. As for his blockbuster ventures like Hellboy and Pacific Rim, they're just proof that he can still embrace his inner child and just have fun; in doing so, he always creates interesting universes filled by hyper-kenetic action and a great sense of humour. Only Stephen Spielberg has proven as articulate in balancing his starker films with such joyful and exciting projects. I always look for projects with del Toro's name on them and I always get excited for more ...more

He ll one day will become the no film director of all time... One thing which aids this statement is uncompromising and rigid vision

107 Denis Villeneuve

He's going to be big

Prisoniers, Enemy, Sicario. All great movies!

108 Alejandro G. Iñarritu

He is a good director

Amazing director!

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.

112 John 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.

113 Michelangelo Antonioni

There are only three Film Directors: Antonioni, Bergman, Fellini. All others are just film directors.
