And ACTION!!! Your favourite directors...

So this kinda grew out of the favourite actors and actresses thread. I was sitting there trying to think of actors and actresses whose movie(s) I would go see just because they were in them. And I couldn't think of ANY (though if you put a gun to my head, I would probably say Johnny Depp, but that's it). However, there are quite a few directors whose movies I would see, just because they were directing, so here's my list:

1. Tim Burton (let's all just forget Planet of the Apes ever happened OK? Otherwise, the man is genius!)
2. Quentin Tarantino
3. Christopher Nolan (Memento is one of my all-time favourite movies EVER)
4. Baz Luhrmann (this one's my girlie pick )
5. Peter Jackson (LOTR will be the highlight of his career, but Heavenly Creatures is also excellent!)

honourable mentions to: David Fincher (Fight Club ) and the Coen brothers (Fargo )

OK moviephiles, let's hear it!

Great list. Those are nearly the same directors I was going to list except for Jean-Pierre Jeunet. I can't think of a fifth director though.

Fargo is great... but what about

Raising Arizona?
Barton Fink?
The Big Lebowski?
O Brother?

So many great films. So many so many so many. (And I love their primary rotating cast of Buscemi, Goodman, and Turturro [you don't f*ck 'a with the Jesus])
