Mine is definitely Alfonso Cuaron:October 22, 2019 at 12:40 am #1203147176
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.October 22, 2019 at 1:07 am #1203147182
Yeah, Cuarón is my #1 too. A fucking legend
also Tarantino, Jenkins, Bigelow, McQueen, Lee, Inarritu, Del Toro, Peele and Lumet to name a fewOctober 22, 2019 at 1:44 am #1203147192
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 KubrickOctober 22, 2019 at 2:03 am #1203147196
If forced to pick one, I’d probably still go with Werner Herzog. Or Frederick Wiseman.October 22, 2019 at 2:09 am #1203147202
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.

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.October 22, 2019 at 2:33 am #1203147223
I’m a sucker for British Oscar-bait, so Joe Wright. His movies always just always work for me.October 22, 2019 at 3:53 am #1203147245This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.October 22, 2019 at 4:45 am #1203147267
There’s just no contest.October 22, 2019 at 5:43 am #1203147326
For me, Steven Spielberg.
I also have the Coen Brothers, Alejandro Gonzalez-Inarritu, Martin Scorsese, Milos Forman, and Francis Ford Coppola.October 22, 2019 at 6:02 am #1203147351
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:
“The art of making art is putting it together...”
