    Cool choice.

    Baz Luhrmann is mine. Sadly, after Moulin Rouge he’s getting worse, but only Get Down was a disappointment for me. Yes, I do like a lot of stuff in Australia and Gatsby.

    Yeah, Cuarón is my #1 too. A fucking legend

    also Tarantino, Jenkins, Bigelow, McQueen, Lee, Inarritu, Del Toro, Peele and Lumet to name a few

    At first I read “Female Director of All Time” and thought it was a troll thread or smth.

    I’ll pick Richard Linklater, Billy Wilder, Damien Chazelle, Agned Varda, Lucrecia Martel and Stanley Kubrick

    If forced to pick one, I’d probably still go with Werner Herzog. Or Frederick Wiseman.

    I love Cuaron. I did my thesis on him in grad school. He did this one shot in Prisoner of Azkaban that blew me away and I fell in love with his directing style.
    His camera movement is incredible. He relies so much on cinematography which is why Emmanuel Lubezki is also a cinematic god.

    Here is the one-shot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kB50GThpiE

    A nearly impossible task to designate just one (as I have too many all-time favorite directors!) but I will say that Kevin Costner‘s brilliant and pioneering directorial work for Dances with Wolves continues to awe and inspire me today just as much as it did on my very first viewing of the film as a kid. That extended buffalo hunt sequence alone is one of, if not the, greatest cinematic achievements ever captured and put to the screen.

    I’m a sucker for British Oscar-bait, so Joe Wright. His movies always just always work for me.

    He’s great I just didn’t like Pan. However, his version of Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorites.

    While I would not consider him my favorite, Damien Chazelle is, imo, an amazing director that isn’t appreciated enough here

    For me, Steven Spielberg.

    I also have the Coen Brothers, Alejandro Gonzalez-Inarritu, Martin Scorsese, Milos Forman, and Francis Ford Coppola.

    The Irishman and Parasite rocks!

    I can’t do this. I can’t even narrow it down to 10.

    Ingmar Bergman is usually my go-to answer when it comes to this question.

    I’d say my current top 5 would be:

    Bergman
    Kubrick
    Fellini
    Hitchcock
    Truffaut
