Seemed like it was time to commit to a list of my favorite film directors. #11 was Ron Howard, who just missed the list. It’s hard to leave off the genius behind Apollo 13 and Backdraft. But I had to get Terrence Malick on there for his incredible work with The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life, and Days of Heaven. I’m pretty sure Kathryn Bigelow would be in my 11-20 rankings of directors for her stunning work with Point Break and Zero Dark Thirty. Eventually I’ll have to expand this list to a Top 25 to more fully recognize all the great influential directors out there.
