The Director Watchlist

These are the directors I keep a regular eye on. They are on my radar. When I hear they're making a new film, it perks my interest. They're all in different stages of their career. Some of them are at near the end, some are just starting, some are right in the middle. Either way, I will update this watchlist whenever the previous starts to feel outdated.
