Directors League

Basically, every director who I've seen 5+ films by is ranked here according to the mean average rating I've given to their work.

==========

I'd love to see your leagues if you set them up, so please share them with me in the comments if you want!

My friend John has produced an excellent resource for creating your own.

More information about my list:

The average rating is my average rating out of 10.

The film chosen for the list represents my favourite work by each given director.

The notes list the directors, their scores and the number of films seen.

How these are ranked:
1. By average rating (highest first)
2. By number of films seen (highest first)…
