The one on the most official lists on ICM. Generally it works out, although there are a few head scratchers.

I like him a lot, but wasn't too impressed with his last film. Love Un prophète and De battre. If he makes a couple more films I love, he might break the top 100

I liked Rust & Bone and saw it twice. I understand how it's not everyone's favorite, but whatever.

Un prophète and De battre are the only two I've seen but both were very good. I'd consider him if I see a great film from him.

I like his movies from the last decade. Never did see Rust & Bone.

He only wrote that, not directed, so I'll give him a pass for it being mediocre.

Woops, just looked at the first set of films on his IMDb page :P Didn't realise it was writing credit.

Forgot about Linklater in my list, could have made an entry later on. Love the before series and waking life, but not hugely appreciative of the rest.

I love the Before series, but don't think I liked anything else I've seen. Just tried to choose directors based on what I liked for now though. Once I've seen more, I can get stricter :P

Love Linklater.

Before trilogy, Slacker, Dazed and Confused. That's a pretty great resume.

Yang and Audiard might make my list when I've seen more. haven't seen any Audiard pre-Beat That My Heart Skipped.

for Yang, I've seen Yi-yi, Brighter & Terrorizers. was a big fan of the latter, after not being bowled over by the others. Taipei Story seems to be next one to seek, but am I right in thinking there's only LQ copies?

Yeah Taipei has a horrendous copy. Very good film though. Mahjong should be avoided at all cost. It's shockingly bad.

One last thing before the list proper.

Since I have the full spreadsheet from last year as well as this year combined, I was able to see some ridiculously large jumps into the top 200. Perhaps directors people have seen more of in the past year? They might be getting into the list next year if that's the case.
These are directors who jumped over 200 places and into the top 200.

I admit my primary motivation for posting that is hoping some people add Sembene to their list. The other directors I don't really care about.

I guess Cuaron is due to Gravity?

Disliked Xala so much that I may never watch another Sembene film. Well, maybe Black Girl.

You should watch that and more importantly, Camp de Thiaroye
