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 26th to submit your lists. We did a Top 150 last year, I might expand it to 200 this year.

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: Andy 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
Allers & Minkoff
Gilliam & Jones Terry Gilliam
Weitz Brothers Chris Weitz
Caro & Jeunet
Lord & Miller
Bluth & Goldman
Lau & Mak
Newmeyer & Taylor
Frank & Panama
Bass & Rankin Jr.


Previous years Top 100 directors: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!

Submitted lists:53

Currently working on my list.
Does any of you have a nice method to fix wrong director matching in the IMDB csv export?
For example Snowpiercer gives me "Bong Joon Ho" as director, while Gwoemul has "Joon Ho Bong".
When I group on that field I obviously get no precise results...
My solution to just properly look at every single entry is a bit frustrating and time consuming.

You could import your ratings to a criticker account. They have a nice director filter that you can sort by number of films rated and average rating, and clicking a director shows you what you've rated.

I added Xavier Dolan somewhat recently (after watching Adele's "Hello" music video that he directed and realized that he wasn't on my favorite directors list). Will try to work on some reordering.

I have directors who I rated higher overall than some people in my list, yet they didn't make the top 100, because there isn't that connection. Numbers are pretty useless for such a list. I have guys who made 5 great movies and 10 duds and I still love them more than people with a better track record.

Way too hard, so I quit at 25.
First 10 are ranked, the 15 after that pretty much impulse additions.
