Nolan is my number one.

I also love the Coen Brothers (not all their stuff, but most), David Fincher has made great movies (I was even impressed with what he did with Alien 3), just saw Defiance and realized that I love Edward Zwick (his filmography is impressive).

That's just off the top of my head and is focused on current directors.

I love Tarantino and Paul Greengrass. I also respect the works of David Fincher and Michael Mann, but sadly I only saw a few of their films. And I love Terry Gilliam, though I saw only one film from him, The Fisher King. I can't say I liked it, but it was a very unique film, and all of his other works are also unique, and apart from that he's an ex-Monty Python for God's sake, so he's an instant genious :D

I haven't seen any movie of the Alien Franchise, but it really sounds impressive if you look at who directed them. 4 well reknown directors, you would say it must be the best movie franchise ever...
David emerges from the store slowly. He braces himself against a parked car and then keeps on walking in a nightmarish daze.

WE PULL BACK as David blends in with dozens and dozens of ordinary people, walking on an ordinary street, in an ordinary city.

Christopher Nolan, Peter Jackson, and Judd Apatow are my current favorites.
I also look forward to what Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso Cuaron, Richard Kelly, Martin McDonagh, and Michel Gondry direct.

I feel ashamed I left John Hughes off my list. I truly enjoyed sooooo many of his films! Planes, Trains and Automobiles easily being one of my Top 10 films. Ever.

Rest in Peace.
