Top Ten Directors? (and now current)

This probably has been discussed before, but I was just curious to see people's top ten directors lists.
Mine:
1. David Lynch
2. Jean-Luc Godard
3. Michael Snow
4. Stan Brakhage
5. Alfred Hitchcock
6. Orson Welles
7. Herschell Gordon Lewis
8. Alejandro Jowordowsky
9. Ingmar Bergman
10. Dario Argento

Just under the ten: Atom Egoyan, Harmony Korine, Andrei Tarkovsky.

Great list, b/a! Mine are more predictable, I guess (since it includes PTA). And these are in no order:

1. Kryzstof Kieslowski
2. Stanley Kubrick
3. PTA
4. David Lynch
5. Spike Lee
6. Coen Brothers
7. Ingmar Bergman
8. Scorsese
9. Tim Burton
10. Hitchcock

Geez, I run out of room so fast on these lists! I need a space for Bunuel, Woody Allen, Jim Jarmusch, Terry Gilliam, and all the guys who have only made one or two or three masterpieces so far (Wes Anderson, Darren Arronofsky, Vincent Gallo).

1. Kubrick
2. Anderson, P.T.
3. Scorsese
4. Stone, Oliver
5. Coen
6. Lynch
7. Lee, Spike
8. Anderson, Wes
9. Soderbergh
10. Lumet

(Close-Calls: Jonze, Aronofsky, Payne, Allen, Spielburg, Fellini)

No real surprises.  Nothing that hasn't already been said.  There are many many many many classics of which I have not seen.   This would be my reasons for not having guys like Kurosawa, Bergman, Wells, Godard, and Truffaut.  Shamed to admit it, i am.  Someday I will see these great films I keep putting off.
