Directing Inspiration Part II

steven-spielberg-directing-style-114After making Directing Inspiration in 2013, I’ve decided to put together another list of 10 directors that I enjoy very much.  It was easy for me to pick my top 3 picks on my last list and then it became a little more time consuming narrowing down my top 10 personal favourites.  My list was way over-bloated of course, so now it’s time for Part II.  This time I haven’t dedicated any time to ranking the filmmakers, deciding instead to just list them in the order they came to me.  Basically, this is a list who all really deserved to be on my first if only there were more spots.  Since there weren’t, I felt somewhat guilty as they too inspire me a great deal.  However, I have tried to rank each film from top to bottom in accordance to my preference.

An absent-minded plothole, as far as narratives go, so it seems...
