yeah, and can you move your feedback to 'brainstorming and feedback'?

This is a very old thread but I wanted to go ahead and add my personal list of the greatest/my favorites:

1. Andrei Tarkovsky
2. Sergei Parajanov
3. Carl Theodor Dreyer
4. John Cassavetes
5. Frank Capra
6. Robert Bresson
7. Yasujiro Ozu
8. Ingmar Bergman
9. David Lynch
10. Lars Von Trier

Honorable mentions go to: Martin Scorsese, Robert Altman, Jean-Luc Godard, Federico Fellini, Satyajit Ray, Charles Chaplin, and Buster Keaton
Capra tells us that, in effect, love's dreams are only dreams and that they will never quite bear translation into practical forms of relationship and expression. They will never be realized in the world but only in our consciousness and in our most daring and glorious works of art - but that, for Capra, is no reason to abandon love's dreams.
--Ray Carney, American Vision: The Films Of Frank Capra

In no order:

Woody Allen
Pedro Almodóvar
Ingmar Bergman
Tim Burton
The Coen Brothers
Francis Ford Coppola
Stanley Kubrick
David Lynch
Martin Scorsese
François Truffaut

I only listed directors whose carrers began before the nineties so that they could have enough films on their filmographies to name them great (and consistent) directors. Others who didn't make it to the list for not having enough films on their curriculum: PT Anderson, Wes Anderson, Darren Aronofsky, David Fincher or Quentin Tarantino.

Also, names like Spike Lee, Brian De Palma, Oliver Stone or Steven Spielberg didn't make it to the list but were very close.

in no order

Sergio Leone
Alfred Hitchcock
Francis Truffaut
Jean Luc-Godard
Woody Allen
Francis Ford Coppola
Martin Scorsese
Ingmar Bergman
Wong Kar-Wai
Jean Renoir

Missing the cut:  PTA, Wes, Bogdanovich.
Others missed simply because I feel I need to see more of their movies.
