    USA / English - Director's Filmographies - Part 1

    This is a database with categories containing all of a given director’s blu-ray releases in the United States, releases of their films abroad with better picture quality, and releases of their films abroad that are not yet available in the USA as of 6-20-20.

    If a director's film is not available on blu-ray in the USA but has been released elsewhere and is English-friendly, it's in this database, and English-friendly international releases with better picture quality than their USA counterparts are in this database.

    Scroll down for a list of all directors included.

    • Directors are sorted alphabetically by first name, because that’s the default method on blu-ray.com and changing it would be a pain in the ass
    • In the case of there being multiple blu-ray releases of a film in the US, only the release with the best picture quality is listed
    • In the case that a release has multiple versions (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy), the closest version to a blu-ray-only release is listed (best picture quality for the cheapest price)
    • Releases from the UK, Germany, or France with better picture quality are listed alongside their US counterparts, if applicable
    • Releases from the UK, Germany, or France with alternate cuts not available in the US are listed alongside their US counterparts, if applicable
    • Films from a director’s filmography that haven’t been released in the US but are available abroad are listed
    • If a director’s films aren’t in English (i.e. Michael Haneke), only foreign releases that include English subtitles are listed alongside the US releases
    • SD upscales and 1080i releases of films unreleased in the US are not included
    • TV Series where a director only directed the initial episodes (i.e. House of Cards) are not included
    • Foreign born directors who made the majority of their movies in English or are overwhelmingly associated with the history of Hollywood (i.e. Billy Wilder) are included in the English language list
    • (Most) directors with three or less titles on blu-ray are not included
    • Releases from the UK, Germany, and France may be region-locked (Region B)
    • For the most part, UK releases from Arrow, Indicator, and Masters of Cinema are listed if they have at least equivalent picture quality to their US counterparts
    • Picture quality of international releases can be compared to their US counterparts on Caps-a-holic

    To easily distinguish international releases from their US counterparts based on the covers alone:
    • UK releases have their rating inside a (usually white/red) circle (i.e. 15 or 18)
    • German releases have their rating inside a square with rounded corners
    • French releases are a free-for-all but the titles are usually in French
    • Australian releases have their rating inside of a wide rectangle with rounded corners
