Re: 10 highest scoring new/contemporary directors

Three years later, here are the forty directors on my list who fit the criteria and have a mean score above 50 (assuming I haven't made any mistakes):

    Patrick Keiller. 85.00 (3)
    Asghar Farhadi. 80.00 (3)
    Andrew Dominik. 75.00 (3)
    José Padilha. 72.00 (5)
    Noah Baumbach. 71.00 (5)
    Gaspar Noé. 69.25 (8)
    Bruno Dumont. 69.00 (8)
    Jafar Panahi. 68.75 (4)
    Jean-Xavier de Lestrade. 66.67 (3)
    James Marsh. 66.67 (3)

    Alex Gibney. 65.00 (3)
    Jeff Nichols. 65.00 (3)
    Jonathan Glazer. 65.00 (3)
    Darren Aronofsky. 64.33 (6)
    Paul Thomas Anderson. 63.50 (8)
    Bertrand Bonello. 63.33 (6)
    Wes Anderson. 62.92 (12)
    Paolo Sorrentino. 62.14 (7)
    Dardenne brothers. 61.25 (4)
    Thomas Vinterberg. 61.25 (4)

    Bennett Miller. 60.00 (3)
    Spike Jonze. 59.33 (15)
    John Hyams. 59.00 (5)
    Christopher Nolan. 56.67 (9)
    Apichatpong Weerasethakul. 56.00 (5)
    David O. Russell. 56.00 (5)
    Michael Winterbottom. 55.83 (6)
    Michel Gondry. 55.00 (6)
    Nacho Vigalondo. 55.00 (5)
    Lucky McKee. 55.00 (5)

    Lynne Ramsay. 55.00 (3)
    Harmony Korine. 52.86 (7)
    Chan-wook Park. 52.50 (6)
    Nicolas Winding Refn. 52.22 (9)
    Jacques Audiard. 51.67 (3)
    Ben Affleck. 51.67 (3)
    Denis Villeneuve. 51.67 (3)
    Justin Benson. 51.25 (4)
    Aaron Moorhead. 51.25 (4)
    Guy Ritchie. 51.25 (4)

In my view, the only directors on this list who have made masterpieces are Gaspar Noé (I Stand Alone and Irreversible), Bruno Dumont (P'tit Quinquin), Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) and Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood).

Reducing it to directors whose feature film debut was the year 2000 or later, my top ten looks like this:

    Asghar Farhadi. 80.00 (3)
    Andrew Dominik. 75.00 (3)
    José Padilha. 72.00 (5)
    Jean-Xavier de Lestrade. 66.67 (3)
    Alex Gibney. 65.00 (3)
    Jeff Nichols. 65.00 (3)
    Jonathan Glazer. 65.00 (3)
    Bertrand Bonello. 63.33 (6)
    Paolo Sorrentino. 62.14 (7)
    John Hyams. 59.00 (5)

Based on this list, it seems clear that, in the twenty-first century, having a first name beginning with either A or J is crucial, since that covers 80% of the names on the list.

Re: 10 highest scoring new/contemporary directors

Here are my top 10 directors who fit this criteria:

José Padilha. 78.75 (4)
Andrew Dominik. 76.67 (3)
Noah Baumbach. 75.00 (3)
Darren Aronofsky. 69.20 (5)
Bertrand Bonello. 68.00 (5)
Gaspar Noé. 67.71 (7)
James Marsh. 66.67 (3)
Paul Thomas Anderson. 66.33 (6)
Wes Anderson. 65.63 (8)
Paolo Sorrentino. 61.25 (4)

Padilha, in first position on this list, is in 31st position on my list of directors with at least three films seen. Of course, taking an average score for a director's films can be a bit of a rough instrument at times.

For comparison, here are the rest of the directors I could locate who fit this criteria and have an average of at least 50:

Dardenne brothers. 60.00 (3)
Thomas Vinterberg. 60.00 (3)
Spike Jonze. 59.58 (12)
Lucky McKee. 57.50 (4)
Christopher Nolan. 56.25 (8)
Apichatpong Weerasethakul. 56.25 (4)
Michel Gondry. 55.83 (6)
Nacho Vigalondo. 55.00 (5)
Michael Winterbottom. 55.00 (5)
Harmony Korine. 53.33 (6)
David O. Russell. 53.33 (3)
Guy Ritchie. 51.25 (4)
Chan-wook Park. 50.00 (5)
Nicolas Winding Refn. 50.00 (3)
