*The first few names are in order of preference but it's mostly kinda random.

*This was originally a "Top 10" list, but I would leave too many directors out, and I couldn't live with it.

Who left the list:

*2009: No casualties.
*2010: Eric Rohmer, Claude Chabrol, Arthur Penn, Mario Monicelli and Blake Edwards.
*2011: Sidney Lumet.
*2012: Tony Scott.
*2013: No casualties.
*2014: Eduardo Coutinho, Harold Ramis and Alain Resnais.
