Top 10 Most Famous Movie Directors

Many film snobs say that the golden age of “The Big Director” is over. Everyone is complaining about all the remakes, all the sequels, and all the cookie-cutter movies being made today. However, there are still directors (both contemporary and from the past) that are still widely known. Bring their name up in conversation, and 99 times out of 100, people will know who you’re talking about.

Here are the 10 most famous movie directors.

Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock made so many classic movies. South by Southwest, Vertigo, Rear Window, Birds. But most famous is his movie Psycho. Practically every person alive today can picture the infamous shower scene. Hitchcock still inspires thriller and horror movie directors of today!

David Fincher

Here’s another director who is extremely skilled at creating tension in his moves. He directed Fight Club, Seven, The Social Netwok, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. He is famous for shooting multiple takes of every scene in his films, getting the absolute best performances from each of his actors. And make no mistake, when I say “multiple” I don’t mean two or five. More like at least twenty takes.

James Cameron

Pretty much up until last week, James Cameron was the director of the top grossing movie of all time (Avatar). It only got beaten by Avengers: End Game recently. Nevertheless, James Cameron is still a director everyone knows (or has at least heard of). After all, he made Titanic, and absolutely everyone knows about Titanic.

Quentin Tarantino

Here’s every male film student’s first favorite film director! Quentin Tarantino is what people call an “auteur”. He’s someone who controls every aspect of their films, from the writing, to casting, to directing, and even choosing the soundtrack. Quentin Tarantino is a very skilled writer-director, and many of his films have become cult classics.
