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 Thursday Dec 28th 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:
Dec2016
Dec 2015

A couple of other directors lists to look at: From the book 501 Directors

Might update or change the order. But I think I added a couple people in the last year, so we are all good.

Just for the record, I'd now prefer to submit this letterboxd list which is both more comprehensive and up-to-date...

https://letterboxd.com/systematicer/list/favorite-directors-represented-by-one-film/

...but that won't rightly work since aside from being a letterboxd list also is a list of films rather than people. I can't be bothered to translate this into an IMDb list, but if you are looking for something to waste your time with be my guest (weirdboy?^^). So instead here is that old shit:

http://www.imdb.com/list/ls073778002/
Group 1: 1-42
Group 2: 43-110
Group 3: 111-184


representative for multiple directors

It hasn't been updated in 6 months, so I'll see if I find the time for that

One new duo in the list: Phil Lord and Christopher Miller

this is my current top 10 of directors

1. Philippe Grandrieux
2. Andrei Tarkovsky
3. Yoshishige Yoshida
4. Éric Rohmer
5. Andrzej Zulawski
6. Shin'ya Tsukamoto
7. Marguerite Duras
8. Michelangelo Antonioni
9. Jean-Luc Godard
10. Yasujirô Ozu

can't make it into a list myself though...
somebody did made a list for me in 2014: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls071832089/
Zulawski wasn't even on there yet at that time! don't know if I need to be ashamed about that or glad that even after seeing so much I can still make great discoveries! Mani Kaul is also missing from that list, so it would really need an overhaul... but if the above top10 could be made into a list I am also happy to stick with that this time.

Do you want someone to add that top 10 to IMDb or do you just submit that old list?

Awesome. Thank you. Seemed like quite a bit of work to me. Was it?

If you don't mind, I copied the list and am "hosting" it from my IMDb account now. I corrected what needed to be corrected and as I was already going through it again anyway I switched a few names around. You can delete the one on your account now, if you like.

So here it is:
http://www.imdb.com/list/ls027736571/

Ranked with a capital R, not with a small r, because that would just be silly.

Sure, no problem. Not that long, a few songs and I was done.

Alright, I knew you'd have to change some things around, there quite a few cases where I didn't know who to put (e.g. Canada or Luis Cerveró).

I'd rather submit my current top10 than my old list, because zulawski needs to climb the ranks hard this time! :) if you could make it on imdb for me I'd be very thankful.

Just out of curiosity, and of course it's none of my business, but are you principally opposed to making your own IMDb account? It's not like it's very complicated ... :)
