The 80 Best-Directed Films

"As the DGA celebrates its 80th anniversary this year, we decided to poll our members to see what they consider the 80 greatest directorial achievements in feature films since the Guild's founding in 1936.Many organizations and critics groups have compiled similar lists, but this was an opportunity for the people who actually do the job to focus specifically on the work of the director and his or her team. Members participating totaled 2,189 . As in any poll of this nature, there are bound to be choices you disagree with, and other films you would have included—that's part of the fun. But we think you'll find this list thought-provoking and a fitting tribute to the timeless work of our great directors.top ten favorite movie titles to collectively build our list of the 100 best movies of all time. Now it's time to see how you compare."
