The 10 Most Popular Movie Directors of All Time, According to IMDb (2017)

The IMDB Top 250 is an invaluable source for movie lovers. From it one can find a crowdsourced consensus for the best movies ever made. But did you know that nearly a quarter of the films on the list are directed by just ten people? Some of the most popular directors have an amazing strike rate when it comes to getting on the list, with one even achieving an 80% success rate. Can you already guess who it is?
Of the top ten directors in this list; all ten are men, and only two are non-white (Miyazaki and Kurosawa). This is representative of the lack of diversity in film appreciation and the patriarchal nature of the wider world. There is not actually a single female-directed film on the entire IMDB Top 250.
