Top 10 Greatest Film Directors of all Time


Not many people realize this, but filmmakers have some of the toughest jobs on the planet. They get paid well, of course, but nobody ever thinks about the countless hours of stress and the discipline these filmmakers must possess to deal with every single thing that usually goes wrong during a movie’s production.

At the end of it all, if the movie does well, it is the actors who get most of the credit, whereas if the movie turns out wrong, nine times out of ten the director gets blamed for it. Despite this, some directors have had enormous success over the years as everything they touched seems to have turned to gold. Let us then remind ourselves of the ten greatest film directors of all time and the movies that made them famous.

8Walt Disney

The legendary Walt Disney won no less than 22 Oscars in his lifetime, which speaks volumes about his influence in the industry. This man more or less invented the modern animated film as we know it, influencing generations of animators and film directors afterward. As a director, he achieved major success with classics such as ‘Snow White’, ‘Cinderella’, and ‘Bambi’. It wouldn’t be much of a stretch to presume that current animation films would be a lot different without him.
