My Favorite 119 Directorial efforts from 109 quality directors; PLUS other noteworthy works.


The independent director was out in full force this decade and by 2009 I finally saw a healthy group of female directors churning out impressive work. Of course Scorsese and the Coens dominated as they have in the past, showing no signs of slowing down.

Enjoy!
