    I picked other. Spielberg is great. GL made my favorite movies. How about Kubrick or Coppola?

    **tries not to think about the previous two posts**

    Kubrick was the best ever, but the best living director is... I can't decide yet.

    spielburg. i don't see george lucas as a director; he's more of a storyteller in my mind.

    I'm old school - voted 'Other' for Stanley Kubrick.

    But Spielberg is a very close second! :D

    Most of the directors on this list are MOVIE directors, not film directors. Movies are made for the masses, films are not.

    I'm not saying that GL is the best director in Hollywood..

    I voted for him because I just admire and respect him for bringing Star Wars into my life.

    Bryan Singer
    David Fincher
    George Lucas
    Steven Spielberg
    The Coen Brothers
    Hitchcock
    Shyamalan

    These are my favorites, but I'd have to break down my favorites like this:

    Past favorite(s) (but still make good films) Spielberg (For Jaws) tied with Lucas (American Graffiti and Star Wars).

    Current favorite(s) Fincher (SE7EN, The Game, Fight Club, Panic Room) tied with Singer (The Usual Suspects, X-Men, X2).


    And like that...he's gone.
