He's very underrated in my opinion. he has directed films such as the Silence of the Lambs, the Manchurian Candidate, and Philadelphia.

'Tommy' and 'The Devils' are groundbreaking movies. 'Altered States', 'Crimes of Passion' and 'Mr Nice' are totally underrated, but excellent films, too.

169 John Schlesinger
170 Eric Rohmer
171 Ken Loach

Made Robocop and Total Recall. Should be higher. - JakePlaid

One of the most influential director's of all-time. The Big Sleep may be the greatest film noir of all-time.
