Eek, I had a feeling my list would look like this. I’m still knocking off stand alone must-sees, so I haven’t been able to dig as deep into some of the great’s filmographies as I want to. It's hard to bring myself to check To Catch a Thief when still sitting in my watchlist are Ran, Paris, Texas, Nashville, the three colors trilogy, Les diaboliques, Army of Shadows...Also, it’s pretty hard to be my age (mid-20s) and NOT have seen pretty much everything Spielberg and Burton have done by default.

(Also, this list doesn’t count the Brakhages and Lumieres)

Steven Spielberg - 22
Kubrick – 13
Tim Burton – 13
Coen Brothers – 11
Hitchcock - 10

I'm glad that my spreadsheet has provided others with joy :D I changed a few things around a while ago though, so it's a little more streamlined.

Onderhond, you've seen quite a lot of Hong Kong films. Do you have a list of your favorite Hong Kong films, by any chance? I'm looking for some recommendations to watch during the next Chinese challenge.

Some Chinese martial arts films might have slipped through the cracks. Not sure how much you've seen already, but most films listed shouldn't be too hard to find. But if you're doing a Chinese challenge, some actual Chinese films would be a better option. At least for now China is beating HK when it comes to producing interesting cinema.

Thanks. It's a Chinese-language challenge so Hong Kong will be eligible. I like both Mainland and Hong Kong cinema but prefer Hong Kong (although post-2000 I agree Mainland is probably better).

I've seen everything available from both official Chinese lists, but it seems you've seen more non-list Chinese-language films than me.

I used Letterboxd for this, but I know that database are far from complete, but for those I've checked it strange to see some differ, and Chuck Jones differ very much (probably because we can't count dual+ directors with this solution)

But I used the solution in: http://www.icmforum.com/single/?p=8147031&t=7040004

So without further ado: Top 10
29 Woody Allen (Letterboxd says 30)
20 Steven Spielberg (Letterboxd says 21)
17 Martin Scorsese (Letterboxd says 18)
16 Alfred Hitchcock
15 Tim Burton (Letterboxd says 16) (+ 2 shorts)
14 Clint Eastwood
13 Ron Howard
13 Roman Polanski - french
13 Robert Zemeckis
12 Joel Coen
12 Wes Craven
12 Stanley Kubrick
12 Sam Raimi
12 Rob Reiner
11-10Show
11 John Landis (Letterboxd says 12)
11 Luc Besson - french
11 Knut Bohwim - norwegian
11 Blake Edwards
11 Peter Jackson
11 Hayao Miyazaki - japanese
11 Herbert Ross
11 Billy Wilder
10 David Lynch (Letterboxd says 11)
10 John Badham
10 Terence Fisher
10 Ivan Reitman
10 Oliver Stone
...
09 Peter Greenaway (Letterboxd says 10)
09 John Huston (Letterboxd says 10)
Including Shorts and Episodes - top 15Show

35 William Hanna
29 Woody Allen
28 Chuck Jones (Letterboxd says 39)
27 Genndy Tartakovsky

20 Steven Spielberg
17 Tim Burton (Letterboxd says 18)
17 Martin Scorsese (Letterboxd says 18)
16 Alfred Hitchcock

My current top 10 (well, 12 because of a tie on place 10). No shorts included, though I did count anthology entries.

Imdb sucks for this because of the way they export directors. Co-directors is an issue, like New York Stories for Woody and Marty, but also it exports "credited as" values (Hence the The Wachowskis issue we get in polls) so you might have a Charles M. Jones with 11 shorts there somewhere, and it doesn't export a director credit for uncredited films. On the other hand Letterboxd probably doesn't have everything correctly designated as short vs feature.

I manually count them on Letterboxd, well, visit every director page.

I just joined Letterboxd, so I have go through all movies anyway to see if the right ones got imported, so I'm checking this at the same time.

So I know the ones imdb stats are missing are New York Stories, Twilight one: The Movie etc. I'll probably update this once a month (if there is any change), and will search for "," first to find all pairings so I can add those to the other stats.

How to solve Freleng, Jones, Amato and all others with multiple names I probably just should manually count on imdb. It's not too many directors anyway, and I know if I have seen them regularly.

I have seen more than 16 feature films (shorts excluded) from the following 26 directors:

Woody Allen [48]
Ingmar Bergman [35]
Alfred Hitchcock [33]
Robert Altman [29]
Brian De Palma [28]
Blake Edwards [27]
John Huston [26]
Sidney Lumet [25]
Clint Eastwood [23]
David Cronenberg [21]
Steven Spielberg [21]
Martin Scorsese [20]
Billy Wilder [20]
Basil Dearden [19]
Robert Wise [19]
Steven Soderbergh [19]
John Ford [18]
Jean-Luc Godard [18]
Ronald Neame [18]
Roman Polanski [18]
J. Lee Thompson [18]
Joel/Ethan Coen [17]
George Cukor [17]
Arthur Hiller [17]
Ken Russell [17]
Marcel Varnel [17]

Not much out of the usual there, though I bet that I have seen more De Palma, Altman, Lumet and Cronenberg films that the average moviegoer. Same goes for Blake Edwards, I guess, though that's mostly coincidental. I wouldn't consider myself to be an Edwards fan at the best of times, though he probably has half a dozen films that I really like.

1 and 2 are Hitchcock and Kurosawa, as I've completed both of their filmographies. After that its probably Spielberg. Then who knows. Wilder, maybe?

I've got 55 checks on Godard's filmography, which must be highest for me, but i did not check every usual suspect (Hitchcock amounted to only 36, so i didn't feel the need to dig much deeper). I've "completed" a few directors with smaller filmographies though....

Having seen so much from specific eras it's nearly impossible for me to provide a legit list of features, but going by Letterboxd which lists my 20 most watched directors which is short-dominated, especially cartoon shorts, this is what it says:


467 - Dave Fleischer
276 - Friz Freleng
258 - Chuck Jones
245 - Seymour Kneitel
202 - Georges Méliès
184 - Mannie Davis
177 - Paul J. Smith
176 - Robert McKimson
169 - James H. White
167 - D.W. Griffith
157 - Walter Lantz
149 - Connie Rasinski
144 - Izzy Sparber
138 - Frank Moser
133 - Jules White
133 - Tex Avery
128 - William Hanna
124 - Joseph Barbera
118 - Edwin S. Porter
108 - Eddie Donnelly


Apart from such film pioneers as Georges Méliès, D.W. Griffith, Edwin S. Porter & James H. White, plus Jules White (Three Stooges, etc), this is strictly cartoon world.

Interesting flashback, current number 1 is Godard with 48 feature length films seen. He's followed by both Ingmar Bergman and Woody Allen at 43 (yeah, not seen anything since Blue Jasmine), then John Ford at 41. Hitch has just gone up one film ... and now rests with 40.

I have no idea how I would go about formally calculating a "leader board." But I've seen 132 Brakhage films, and I can't imagine anyone else would come close to that tally.

I've seen 97. I think there are some experimental lovers here like Dolwphin who have seen more than you.

EDIT: No, he has seen 79. Perceval 85. I think you win EW. Be proud of it!
