    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.

    From these options, Paul Thomas Anderson. If we’re talking ever, then I would say Hitchcock or Kurosawa.

    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.

    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.

    Of those options, I suppose Ridley Scott.

    But the directors I think are the most overdue are Quentin Tarantino and David Lynch.
