Meme Leech :: Leaving a Lasting Impression x 15.

This 15 Directors meme officially kicked off at Films from the Supermassive Black Hole and has since weeded its way through the Blogoshpere. The rules are fairly self-explanatory: list off the first 15 directors that come to your head that have shaped the way you look at movies, and the ones that will always stick with you. I didn't think about it too long, as ordered, and here's what my brain regurgitated up:

Anthony Mann ::

Man of the West, Winchester '73, Men in War

Bert I. Gordon ::

Amazing Colossal Man, Tormented, Village of the Giants

Eddie L. Cahn (Left) ::

Invasion of the Saucer Men, IT! The Terror from Beyond Space

Gordon M. Douglas ::

THEM!, Rio Conchos, Tony Rome

Howard Hawks ::

The Thing from Another World, Rio Bravo, His Girl Friday

IshirĂ´ Honda (Left) ::

Gojira et al., War of the Gargantuas, The H-Man

Jacques Tourneur ::

The Cat People, Out of the Past, Curse of the Demon

Joe Dante ::

Piranha, Matinee, The Howling

Joel and Ethan Coen ::

O' Brother, Where Art Thou, Raising Arizona,
The Big Lebowski

John Carpenter ::

Halloween, The Fog, Big Trouble in Little China

John Llewellyn Moxey ::

The Night Stalker, The House that Would Not Die,
Home for the Holidays

Mario Bava ::

Just about everything -- except for
Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Bombs.

Ray Dennis Steckler ::

Incredibly Strange Creatures etc., Rat Pfink a Boo Boo,
Thrill Killers

Roger Corman ::

Creature from the Haunted Sea, The Raven,
X: Man with the X-Ray Eyes

Seijun Suzuki ::

For the record: Brad Bird, Monte Hellman, Sam Raimi, Samuel Fuller, Budd Boetticher, Phil Karlson, Clint Eastwood, Sergio Leone, Sam Peckinpah, Billy Wilder, Nicholas Ray, Michael Mann, and many, many others could have made this list as well.
