Who was the greatest director of all time? I don’t pretend to be able to solve the issue, nor argue that such a subjective thing ever could be solved, but we can have a bit of fun with the topic. With an eye towards a certain collegiate tournament that seems to be popular this time of year, I propose that we have our own Tournament of Directors.

It will be simple enough: 64 directors will be entered, with the top half being seeded (my discretion, those are the perks of being the tournament’s chief executive), and we’ll vote on them and see which two proceed to the finals and which emerges as victor. I’ll be compiling a list, but feel free to email me at matthew@filmschoolrejects.com to give me more suggestions. We’re keeping the field to 64, but I’ll be happy to include as many other suggestions as I can.

In the first round, I’ll be giving a few match ups at a time along with a voting deadline. You can vote by sending me an email to the above address. Winners will be announced and a new batch of match ups and their voting deadline will be posted. Please keep it to one vote per person; we’re on the honor system against fraud!

So get your keyboards ready for the ballots, because Film School Rejects first ever Tournament of Directors is about to begin!
