Originally I posted this article with no words besides the directors names and the film titles.  There really isn’t much more needed than that, so I believe.  I just intend this to be an easy way to spread some attention on film directors.  Anyone with any appreciation knows film directors don’t always get the time of day that they deserve comparably with actors.  So I attempted to list my 10 picks, a truly impossible task inside those limits.  So I did the best I could with the first 10 and have another 10 on the way with more sure to follow.

1. John Carpenter
