Many directors made controversial films (some of them made the following list) but this poll is also about directors who were controversial for 'public image' reasons that didn't affect their work. Some aren't with us anymore to defend themselves so only their legacy can speak for them.

Which of these directors still got the most of your respect as a film-maker regardless of any controversy affecting his/her image?

I think these two garnered such a tremendous amount of respect that controversy never really affected their reputation. I have no proof for that except for the countless Youtube comments on their clip, there's basically 0.0001% of comment mentioning a stain in their reputation. Besides, they'll probably get all the votes and the poll will be pointless.

Well, most likely any of the ones who were not child molesters will receive the most votes.

I also think it's the lowest low one can reach... will that affect the votes? I don't know. 

Of course, I'm not making any comparaisons, but I just read that Vincent Cassel's new girlfriend was 21, it reminded me of Jeff Goldblum who was dating once that actress who played in Malcolm in the Middle

Naturally, they're not children at 21 but when it comes to "serious relationships" like it seems to be with Cassel, I'm wondering how can one feel about having a relationship with someone who wasn't even born when you had reached your 20s, let alone your 30s. That generation gap thing exists the other way too, look at French President who's 25 years younger than his wife...

Granted love is blind and all that but I still think it's a little bit disturbing or just weird in an unpleasant way to be with someone young enough to be your son or your daughter.

"look at French President who's 25 years younger than his wife..."

Emmanuel Macron (born 1977) married Brigitte Trogneux (born 1953). She used to be his high-school teacher when he was 15-years-old. He had been pursuing her romantically since he was 18, despite disaproval from his parents. There is nothing wrong with havinng the hots for the teacher, right?
