Greatest Film Directors of All Time
The Contenders: Page 6
Maybe not as consistent with his movies like the Coen-Brothers, Burton, Tarantino or even Hitchcock ('Bugsy Malone' is one of the worst movies ever (in my opinion) and 'Evita' is pretty awful too), but 'The Wall', 'Midnight Express', 'Angel Heart', 'Birdy' and even 'Fame' are some of the greatest films ever.
Best British director of our time. One of the best directors of noir-action-crime films in that there are no others like them. Truly original and a brilliant rejection of Hollywood conventions.

THIS MAN IS A GENIUS! - Animeguy15
'Paris, Texas' is an incredible movie. Amazing cinematography, excellent cast, emotional story and a brilliant soundtrack.
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...

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.

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.
