Upcoming all time great directors

Tools    





Ryan Coogler has done only two movies, both very different, yet amazing, and truly beautifully shot, they weren't good just because of the story.

Duncan Jones can also be amazing, had three great movies, two of which were highly complex to make yet he made them work.

It's hard to say whether they'll be one of the all-time greats, but I can see them with a stunning body of work in 10 years.

And I would agree with @mlaturno about the importance of a director having one human-defining movie like The Tree of Life or similar.

Anna Rose Holmer, John Michael McDonagh, Ryan Coogler, Barry Jenkins, László Nemes, Damien Chazelle, Joel Edgerton, etc.

I could think of a lot more, but those are a few recent talents I'm excited to see more of.



Though the movie Hush had more than its share of problems, director Mike Flanagan displays some real potential as a director.



I really like Flanagan so far (seen Absentia, Oculus and Ouija: Origin of Evil and really liked all of them) and very much want to see Hush and Before I Wake. What's he doing next, anyone know?
