    I had to narrow a large list down to 10. Pick your favorite.

    If I were allowed more than 10 slots, they’d all be there.

    Well PTA, Daldry, or Aronofsky wouldn’t be my choices anyway (although I would say PTA and Aronofsky be more deserving than Burton or Stone)….two choices I would highly consider would be David Lynch or Alfred Hitchcock were they among this list.

    This is a hard choice, but of this list, I’d narrow it down to:

    Woody Allen
    Stanley Kubrick
    Martin Scorsese

    I think Allen can make some amazing films but he is also guilty for making some very, very flimsy and sorry efforts as well.

    Kubrick was in many ways wise to never make as many films….even his weakest efforts are fairly strong.

    Scorsese has made some films I didn’t care for but his longevity is much better than that of Allen or even some of the bigger names on this list (for example, Spielberg always seems to go through slump periods). 

    It is really an apples to oranges to peaches comparison among these three, but I think I will vote for Scorsese.

    As long as we’re limited to 10 options in these polls, you’ll never be able to list everyone’s favourite directors, but I think you did a very good job at picking what are considered some of the greatest directors of the past 40 years. Even if you were able to list 100 directors, you’d still have to leave off some very popular and influential directors, so you’ll never please everyone. I do appreciate that you titled the poll “Of the ones listed…”

    I choose Woody Allen.  Scorsese, the Coens and Kubrick just behind and the not mentioned Ang Lee

    Billy Wilder is my all time favorite…also partial to other old timers like John Huston, Howard Hawks, Alfred Hitchcock and Preston Sturges.

    I picked Kubrick. Just about every film I’ve seen of his has been an interesting endeavor. I really appreciate the Coen Brothers mention, though.
