Post WOKJ 100 Best Directors: Complete!
Just a quick note. When the directors share the same amount of points, I did value the ones who had most mentions in the top 20 over the others, so e.g. if a director got 10 points being voted by ten people with 1 point, and another one got also ten points, voted by only four people, but let's say 4+4+1+1, the last one is ranked higher.

The List: (so far)

1. Steven Spielberg
2. Alfred Hitchcock
3. Stanley Kubrick
4. Martin Scorsese
5. James Cameron
6. Quentin Tarantino
7. Francis Ford Coppola

18. Christopher Nolan
19. Akira Kurosawa
20. Billy Wilder
21. David Lean
22. Brian DePalma
23. Peter Jackson
24. Sidney Lumet
25. Clint Eastwood
26. Oliver Stone
27. David Lynch
28. Ingmar Bergman
29. Peter Weir
30. George Lucas
31. Roman Polanski
32. Paul Verhoeven
33. David Cronenberg
34. John Ford
35. John Woo
36. Michael Mann
37. Alfonso Cuaron
38. Brad Bird
39. Bryan Singer

Some pretty good names, but fine to see that they're not in the top 100.

Those are five really good directors. Thought at least three or four of them would place.

Haven't done enough IMO, but the bottom of the top 100 seems fine.

Another bad omen for the classic/influential but not well-seen directors when Tarkovsky, one of the better known ones, could barely crack the list.

Well if you want to be a negative Nancy about it...

You're right, though.
