Some greats to be sure...

Personally, I'd add George Lucas and James Cameron, but to add more variety...

Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth)...first subtitled movie I actually went to see in theaters (and it was before any hoopla about it...I basically begged my friends to go see it, and now they all own it)...

Guillermo del Toro really impressed me with Pan's Labyrinth.

Another
Italian Director Federico Fellini- 8 1/2

What about Charles Chaplin?

His slapstick silent films are one thing but his films he directed were even better.
