The Ratings Project: Directors

ACTIVE DIRECTORS
Group 1
Group 2
Group 3
Group 4
Group 5
Group 6
Group 7
Group 8 pt. 1
Group 8 pt. 2

INACTIVE DIRECTORS
Group 9
Group 10
Group 11
Group 12
Group 13
Group 14

DIRECTORS WITHOUT A THREAD
Group 15
Group 16
Group 17

Unlike the main Ratings Project, this will be a snapshot of where these directors rise and fall right now. Once the data is collected (probably in August, voting will close and the Project will be over. Until then you can vote in any group that has been posted.

Initial grouping was selected based on the whether the Director is Active or Retired, career longevity and the level of participation each director has received in their Individual Thread. (The number of votes in their polls not counting 'Haven't Seen Any'.)

I will admit my faults right up front. I will probably forget a name or accidentally place a retired person among the Active. (Right now I have Hayao Miyazaki among the Living Legends because I doubt he will be completely Inactive.) I'm sure to get some spelling wrong, especially in regards to Asian surnames.

Those of you who are too new to remember The Ratings Project, it was the coolest thing ever back in 2012 and you can read the complete instructions here.

If you'd prefer to keep some or all of your ratings private, you can send them to me via Private Message.

I suppose that I tried to think in context of quality, quantity and batting average. I've tried to ignore current career trajectory.

Group 1
Allen, Woody - 9
Almodovar, Pedro - 6
Brooks, James L. - 4 (rating as a film director...he's as important to me as anyone on here as his name is the second one that pops up in the credits to the Simpsons).
Burton, Tim - 5
Cameron, James - 6
Carpenter, John - 6
Coen, Joel and Ethan - 10
Coppola, Francis Ford - 9
Craven, Wes - 6
Cronenberg, David - 6
De Palma, Brian - 5
Demme, Jonathan - 5
Donner, Richard - 5 (still working?)
Eastwood, Clint - 6
Forman, Milos - 6
Friedkin, William - 7
Godard, Jean-Luc - 7
Herzog, Werner - 8
Howard, Ron - 5

I hope to do like pixote and post results in a week - this case would be Monday June 8 - but you can change your ratings until the end of the project.

My logic for ordering would be: In what order would I be sad if their films completely disappeared off the face of the earth? I'll probably end up ranking essentially in line with my favorite films, with some special emphasis for those who make multiple of my favorite films. If I haven't seen the films that I would have loved - too bad! I can't see everything!
