Top Ten British Directors


Iain Fisher:
I forgot about Lean, Roeg and Reed who I like.

It is like all top 10s, you end up with 25.

I also would include Tony Richardson and John Schlesinger. I’m sure there’s others I’m forgetting.

Also, I don’t see David Lean, Nic Roeg, Lindsay Anderson, and Carol Reed. I guess feel they need to include a few current movie makers. Still, they had enough sense to include Ken.

Iain Fisher:
This seems to be from a poll by Vu Cinema, but the Top 10 British Directors of All Time are
