Greatest Film Directors of All Time
The Contenders: Page 6
Without him we couldn't have had the 1980's and the influence it spawned. He directed classics such as The Breakfast Club (my all time favorite), Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sixteen Candles, Pretty In Pink, Home Alone 1 and 2 and Weird Science. He was also a great producer.
John Hughes and Chris Columbus both rock.
Personally watching his films have been a revelation.
Doctors killed him but he is alive in our memory
Simply one of the best Cinema has ever seen...

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
He is a good 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.
He's going to be big
Prisoniers, Enemy, Sicario. All great movies!

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.
There are only three Film Directors: Antonioni, Bergman, Fellini. All others are just film directors.
-should be in the top 20
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.
