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

Listed below roughly according to preference of style and roughly according to preference of director. If humanism comes first for you, then you'd probably be more interested in my preferences on that front. Unfortunately, the hardest thing to find for me are great expressionists and humorists. Perhaps it's the curse of high expectations, who knows. There are a lot of films out there.

Expressionists

Andrei Zulawski
Aleksandr Sokurov
Shuji Terayama
Raoul Ruiz
Yoshishige Yoshida

Humorists

Peter Greenaway
Ruben Östlund
Roy Andersson
Wes Anderson
Otar Iosseliani

Humanists

Hirokazu Koreeda
Krzysztof Kieślowski
Michelangelo Antonioni
Mia Hansen-Løve
Eric Rohmer

Formalists/Impressionists

Terrence Malick
Angela Schanelec
Béla Tarr
Theodoros Angelopoulos
Hsiao-Hsien Hou


Top Female Directors, for me:

Angela Schanelec
Mia Hansen-Løve
Lucretia Martel
Claire Denis
Kira Muratova

Haven't Seen Enough or Not Quite Favorite:
Agnes Varda
Kelly Reichardt
Jane Campion
Maren Ade
Chantal Akerman
Larisa Sheptiko
Mai Zetterling
Ildikó Enyedi
Anocha Suwichakornpong
Maria Speth
Naomi Kawase
Márta Mészáros
Josephine Decker
