It's time to make out favourite directors list again. Submit an imdb list, or a list of imdb urls if you can't make an imdb list, with as many directors as you like. You have until Saturday Dec 24th to submit your lists.

Half life will be 29, like last year.

I will assume your list is ranked unless you specify otherwise.
Other than a ranked list you can submit your list in one of the following ways:
- Unranked: All directors get the same number of points.
- Partially ranked: Top X is ranked, rest is unranked
- Group ranked: You have to specify the groups that go together, all films in the group get the same number of points. (eg: 11-20, 21-30, 31-50, 51-100)


I want to try to be consistent with directorial teams so we'll pick a director to represent each pair, the first one alphabetically. If there are any pairs that I missed let me know and I'll update this list:

Coen Bros: Ethan Coen
Powell & Pressburger: Michael Powell
Dardenne Bros: Jean-Pierre Dardenne
Maysles Bros:Albert Maysles
Huillet & Straub: Danièle Huillet
Wachowskis: Lana Wachowski
Farrelly Bros: Bobby Farrelly
Duplass Bros: Jay Duplass
Hughes Bros: Albert Hughes
Neveldine & Taylor: Mark Neveldine
Quay Bros: Stephen Quay
Taviani Bros: Paolo Taviani
Yervant Gianikian & Angela Ricci Lucchi:Yervant Gianikian
Margarida Cordeiro & António Reis: Margarida Cordeiro
Geronimi, Jackson, & Luske: Clyde Geronimi
Trousdale & Wise: Gary Trousdale
Clements & Musker: Ron Clements
Dayton & Faris: Jonathan Dayton
DeBlois & Sanders Dean DeBlois
Gilliam & Jones Terry Gilliam
Weitz Brothers Chris Weitz



Previous years' Top directors:
Dec 2015
Dec2014
Dec 2013
Dec 2012
Dec 2011
A couple of other directors lists to look at: From the book 501 Directors
From TSPDT: Top 250 Directors

Don't forget the women!

Annabel Jankel and Rocky Morton
Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg
Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden
Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller
Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini
Glenn Ficarra and John Requa
Scott McGehee and David Siegel
Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker

to mention a few. Usually it works, but we don't have to look farther than

Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer to find a duo that don't.

I'll try to remember to update it if I have time.

I like to shake things up a bit for this list. So far I've had different criteria for this list every time (and a different #1 each time as well).

This time I decided to just use the average rating for the movies I've seen from each director (with a minimum of 5 movies, including shorts).

This resulted in a pretty weird list, but that's all just part of the fun. :D

That link redirects to a film. Also that is Lilly Wachowski to you, Sir, which means it really is Lana Wachowski now, because La comes before Li.

I added quite some directors, and I had to let 1 or 2 go. My biggest discovery since the last poll is Atom Egoyan: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls054141614/

Here's my list (ranked):

http://www.imdb.com/list/ls071872869/

Barely any change from when I made the list two years ago. I had a look through the 21st Century's Most Acclaimed Films, but the most exciting current directors only seem to have one or two credits to their names.

Here's my almost completely mathematical approach to this poll:
http://www.imdb.com/list/ls066657849/

It's ranked.

Fixed this. I had just copied everything from last year's post. I'll add all the others later.

Updated the OP with the 15 lists we have so far. I'm remaking mine from scratch this year.

Minor changed from last year. Peter Hutton and Jean Renoir are the most notable climbers, and Tarr and Jia fell the most.
