Ingmar Bergman - I find his films so personal and complex.
Atom Egoyan - want to watch something beautiful but sad? This is your guy.
Adrienne Shelly - not a lot of movies but such potential cut down young...and Waitress is adorable.
Sarah Polley - just starting out but what an artist.
Luc Besson - he's French! And his movies kick ass.
John Waters - shows another side of humanity and he's hilarious.
Krzysztof Kieslowski - poetic films with amazing acting and cinematography
