Cool The Best Directors of All Time Tournament

Earlier this year, I hosted a tourney about the best actors of all time (Gary Oldman beat Robert de Niro in the Finals). Now, I feel like doing something similar, this time involving directors.

Unlike other recent tourneys, you guys have the option of posting up to 15 of your favorite directors. There is no minimum and the order doesn't matter. I'll decide the total number of participants after I close off the nominations (which will be in about 4 days, but I'll alert you guys.) The seedings will be based primarily on their popularity, reputation, and longevity. Again, anyone is eligible, dead or alive.

Feel free to ask questions

The tourney will start sometime next week

Haha. Looking at the names mentioned above, it seems like Nolan wouldn't even make a top 100!

I've enjoyed Chris Nolan's filmography...but he hasn't exactly brought aching new to the table outside of superhero movies.

Very interesting that you were considering Richard Lester. I'm assuming you're referring to his Beatles movies?

My 10 Favorite Directors of All Time:

Stanley Kubrick
Alfred Hitchcock
Terrence Malick
Martin Scorsese
Frank Darabont
Michael Mann
Christopher Nolan
David Fincher
Darren Aronoksky
Paul Thomas Anderson

If I only had to watch the films of these 10 men for the rest of my life, I would happily not watch any other movies ever made. Ever.

And Superman movies and Three Musketeers movies.

BTW I've left two spaces blank in my list because there are 2 people I'm thinking of but can't remember their names. It will come to me eventually.
