Telegraph's Top Ten Brit Directors of All Time

Written by James MacGregor on . Posted in Film industry

Alfred Hitchcock no 1?

 The film critics over at The Daily Telegraph have gotten together and selected who they feel are the 21 best British directors of all-time. How they settled on the 21 is a big mystery, although they say "whittling the list down to just 21 was as enjoyable as it was difficult. We have included only those who were raised chiefly in Britain and who focused above all on making feature films."

Here are their top ten choices:

1. Alfred Hitchcock
2. Charlie Chaplin
3. Michael Powell
4. David Lean
5. Nicolas Roeg
6. Carol Reed
7. John Boorman
8. Terence Davies
9. Alexander Mackendrick
10. Stephen Frears
