David. Fincher. That is all.November 18, 2015 at 1:00 am #551254
PT Anderson. Even without opening the thread I thought of him.November 18, 2015 at 3:31 am #551255
PAUL THOMAS ANDERSON
Putting aside all his great achievements, but just for
the spectacular THERE WILL BE BLOOD..he is way overdue..November 18, 2015 at 7:35 am #551256
Only Paul Thomas Anderson, Terrence Malick, Peter Weir and David Fincher (possibly Ridley Scott) deserve to be on this poll. The rest are good, but there are many more deserving filmmakers that deserve wins.
Here are some that you could’ve added:
- David Lynch
- Werner Herzog
- Alejandro Jodorowsky
- John Waters
- David Cronenberg
- Michael Haneke
- Terry Gilliam
- Christopher Guest
- Spike Lee
My vote would go to David Lynch, who I consider, alongside Robert Altman, the most overdue director of all time.November 18, 2015 at 1:04 pm #551257
From these options, Paul Thomas Anderson. If we’re talking ever, then I would say Hitchcock or Kurosawa.November 18, 2015 at 4:17 pm #551258
David Fincher. They owe him BIG after that Social Network loss.November 18, 2015 at 4:46 pm #551259
I’d sat P.T. Anderson. I admire how risk-taking and unconventional his movies always are. Wes Anderson would be my 2nd pick of the 10 listed, and Fincher would be a close 3rd.November 21, 2015 at 11:10 pm #551260
4. Thomas Anderson
Burton, Luhrmann, Lynch, Tarantino, Payne, Marshall, Aronofsky, Nolan, and Gilliam would be my other write insNovember 22, 2015 at 8:22 pm #551261
Paul Thomas Anderson.
Terrence Malick and David Fincher too. The rest can take a seat with all the non-overdue directors.

I’m inclined to say Terrence Malick, purely based on how long he’s been making films. I thought he should’ve won for The Tree of Life.
Paul Thomas Anderson, too, for consistently doing some of the best directorial work every year he makes a film.December 23, 2015 at 1:02 pm #551263
