Ken Loach
Two of his films made my top 50, but I couldn't justify putting him on my director's list 'cause they're the only two I saw.

There were a couple of directors I felt the same way about. I think the director who surprised me the most was Adam McKay, I never even considered him but then when looking over his '00's output I was amazed at how much I genuinely loved every film he directed and he became an easy inclusion for me.

Coen Bros.
David Gordon Green
Gus Van Sant
Hsiao-Hsien Hou
Jia Zhang-Ke
Michel Gondry
Paul Thomas Anderson
Ramin Bahrani
Wes Anderson

I'm sure Kore-eda would've made my list but Still Walking was his only film I'd seen. Still haven't gotten around to the Dardennes.
