    Most of my favorites have been mentioned so I’ll give a shout out to Uwe Boll. Now here is a producer/director who cranks out hysterically bad movies with such earnesty, I’ve become fond of him. He’s bad. Really bad. But he doesn’t care.

    Don’t think anyone’s mentioned John Carpenter, who has made some of my favorite films: They Live, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, Christine, and Halloween, which scared the crap out of me.

    If he had made only “Double Indemnity” & “Sunset Boulevard” and nothing else still Billy Wilder is my top choice. Of course the everything else is all great too!

    Alfred Hitchcock, Woody Allen, John Huston, The Coen Brothers, Martin Scorsese, Robert Altman follow…

    You have an excellent taste. My top ten:

    1 Alfred Hitchcock
    2 Billy Wilder
    3 Quentin Tarantino
    4 Pedro Almodovar
    5 Martin Scorsese
    6 Howard Hawks
    7 Woody Allen
    8 John Huston
    9 Spike Lee
    10 David Lynch

    Bubbling under: Ingmar Bergman, Federico Fellini, Douglas Sirk, Charles Chaplin, Joseph L. Mankiewicz, Stanley Kubrick, Todd Haynes, Baz Luhrmann, Sofia Coppola, Roman Polanski, Jim Jarmusch, Robert Altman.

    Of modern names I’m watching Barry Jenkis, Jordan Peele, Marielle Heller, Luca Guadagnino, Damien Chazelle, Dee Rees, and Greta Gerwig with a particularly close eye – a few more movies as excellent as they’ve made so far and they will make my hall of fame.

    Don’t think anyone has mentioned Lina Wertmuller, an early pioneer and first woman ever to be nominated in this category.
    Her films have a traumatizing effect on me. I was even able to see her “When Women had Tails” films.
    Her social commentary and political stances are scathing.
