Hey! new to this forum, just been looking round people's lists for a while, thought I'd sign up and post my favourite directors. Maybe find some like minded people.

01. Shane Meadows
02. Andrei Tarkovsky
03. Elem Klimov
04. Benedek Fliegauf
05. Lukas Moodysson
06. Larisa Shepitko
07. Bela Tarr
08. Louis Malle
09. Claire Denis
10. Yorgos Lanthimos
11. Martin Scorsese
12. Tim Roth
13. Michael Haneke
14. Ingmar Bergman
15. Lars Von Trier
16. David Lynch
17. Sergio Leone
18. Lucile Hadzihalilovic
19. Shunji Iwai
20. Víctor Erice

Not 100% happy with this list, some get in because of a single films impression on me while others are excluded as I haven't seen enough

Particularly happy about these. For Hadzihalilovic, is it on the strength of Innocence or have you seen Evolution? That's gotta be my #1 most anticipated film right now.

I've yet to see Evolution though it does seem like my kind of film.

Solid list.  Who would be your top female directors?

I need to see more from a lot of female directors. I don't think I've seen more than four from any female director. Sofia Coppola would probably be my favorite, followed by Lynne Ramsay and Andrea Arnold. I've seen one or two from Agnes Varda, Chantal Akerman, Maren Ade, and many others, so I need to further explore their filmographies
