    John Ford, Frank Capra, David Lean, Sidney Lumet, Billy Wilder, Elia Kazan,John Houston are all deserving of a top 10. Spielberg is mostly boys own adventure movies, mostly with an ending that went a scene too long, and with a warm and happy ending. But it’s all su just an opinion.

    REALLY? None of those directors can even remotely be on the same list as the Great John Ford. Kubrick had three hits mixed in with a bunch of crap. The others are/were talented directors, but their body of work isn’t close to Fords…

      Alfred Hitchcock most certainly can. With his impressive body of work. He’s definitely deserving of the top spot IMO

    Scorsese and Spielberg are average directors. You don’t judge a great director by commercial success. Why isn’t Krzysztof Kieślowski and David Lynch on this list? What about Angelopoulos? They are in the league of Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick only slightly better. I just can’t say this enough, you don’t judge true art by commercial success.

    Eisenstein, Kurosawa and Bergman. Fellini, Visconti, Godard. Just to mention a few that were better than those five. The title of the study (!??) should be “The five greatest Hollywood directors of all time.”

      Bergman sweden

    William Wyler. More actors have won Oscars under his direction than any other director. Quite an achievement!!
