    It has to be Scorsese, and no one comes close:

    1973: Mean Streets

    1974: Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

    1976: Taxi Driver

    1980: Raging Bull

    1983: The King of Comedy

    1985: After Hours

    1986: The Color of Money

    1988: The Last Temptation of Christ

    1990: Goodfellas

    1991: Cape Fear

    1993: The Age of Innocence

    1995: Casino

    1999: Bringing Out The Dead

    2002: Gangs of New York

    2004: The Aviator

    2006: The Departed

    2010: Shutter Island

    2011: Hugo

    2013: The Wolf of Wall Street

    2016: Silence

    2019: The Irishman

    Greatest and most versatile filmography in the bunch.

    Wish I watched enough to tell. My favorite so far is Bergman, followed by Scorsese and Ford. But after watching Juliet of The Spirits, Feline looks promising.

    Also, I have no idea what Christopher Nolan (And even Spielberg, I would say) is doing in here.

    I’d say Scorsese is more consistent than Spielberg, but Spielberg’s highs are just so high that I’m giving it to him.

    They’re here because they’re widely acknowledged as two of the greatest directors of all time.

    Dang, this is hard between Nolan and Spielberg. Gotta go with Spielberg, but probably only because he’s been in the game longer.

    I-

    Nolan is not widely regarded as one of the greatest directors of all time, though. That’s just a lie. He’s just nowhere near the canon yet…

    Anyway, replace Nolan with Godard and then there’s an easy top 3 with him, Scorsese, and Tarkovsky in no particular order. Fellini and Ford would also be worthy of being in a top 3.

    Okay, but he is. Just because you don’t like him doesn’t mean he’s not a widely beloved and acclaimed filmmaker.

    Also, when you google “greatest directors of all time”, he’s literally one of the first names to come up.

    Personally, I love Scorsese’s works the most but Spielberg is just undeniable.

    Billy Wilder. From the choices here, then Hitchcock. If Scorsese hadn’t spent so much time with DiCaprio over the last 18 years he might have gotten it.

    For what it’s worth, back before I really got into film, I only really knew of three directors: Spielberg, Ridley Scott, and Nolan.

    I think Bergman takes this for me. Even his lesser films are still pretty damn good.

    Kurosawa, Scorsese, and Tarkovsky would be close behind.

    Spielberg, in my opinion, has far too many middling films in his canon to compare but he has good classics too.

    Bergman probably with Fellini, Ford & Tarkovsky close behind.

    Then Kurosawa.

    Hitchcock & Scorsese have some great films but Scorsese in particular has a number of low points.

    Welles comes next.

    Spielberg comes next – the occasional very good film but most of his stuff is fluff.

    Nolan???? There are more than 200 better directors than him.

    Scorsese has been very consistent in quality although I’d say he has some sort of comfort zone which is where he excels more at. While New York, New York is good you can’t compare it to Casino or Taxi Driver.

    Spielberg has so much variety in filmography which makes him probably the most recognized director ever. He is not as consistent as Scorsese but he has so many highs that probably his lows don’t even matter.
    Schindler’s List and E.T to name a few totally overshadow stuff like The BFG. He has also made a name for himself as a producer bit I would like for him to not put his name on something like Cats.

    Now Nolan, I doubt any director can do what he does, his filmography is not the biggest but I think he does an amazing job. Quality over quantity. And probably does it great since he writes his films which not all directors do. But I understand people that don’t like him, because you really have to pay attention to the movie otherwise you won’t understand the whole thing. He’s very detailed and visual in his films which is something that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. But he really is a great director.

    He’s not in the poll but I would like to make a case for Paul Thomas-Anderson, he has a great filmography. Boogie Nights and There Will be Blood ar my favourites from him.
