Thanks mate!

I was going to ask which filmmaker will be able to sustain the ranking. Then I thought how silly it was considering one of the filmmakers from the list passed away a year ago (Abbas Kiarotsami).

Even I liked the list. Found many interesting choices from the world cinema. Still felt like Haneke or Weerasethakul were missing. But glad to see Dardenne brothers or Nuri Bilge Ceylan.

I agree with your choice. He is most likely to be consistently entertaining.

I love Metacritic polls. I've used it quite a few times in my polls. 'So happy to see three women on the list. My vote: Miyazaki. 'Good poll!

Yeah. I'm a huge fan of Sofia Coppola's work and I wanted her to be in this list. But not everyone can be included in those 25 choices. Out of the three mentioned here, I loved Mia Hansen-Løve's work so much- especially last year's work - 'Things to Come' starring Oscar-nominated Huppert.

Thanks for your vote!

Could you capitalize "according" in the title? That would make the poll eligible for the home page. I really like this poll.

Thanks DC!

I have done the same.

Nolan's Average career score is 69. The reason why he's not in the list is because the works where he was involved as a producer where he has poor scores.

My vote went to Hayao Miyazaki. He is retired and so his average rating won't go down. The only way he could be out of the list is if 22 directors start making films so great that they all beat him with an unlikely high score. He will undoubtedly retain his place.
