Criterion has presented us with works from a great many fine directors (and a couple of bad ones). Hopefully, in the case of many of these filmmakers, their inclusion in the collection will inspire enthusiasts to seek out additional work from these artists. Here is a list of worthwhile works by all the directors (where applicable- for example, Laughton only made a single film and I can’t in good conscience suggest any additional Michael Bay movies) not here in the Criterion Collection (max 2 films per director). I will try my best to exclude cannon films by the iconic directors (Hitchcock, for example), as the intent of this list is to suggest films that you might otherwise not hear about or think to check out.
