The supremely talented director Friedkin was born in Chicago but moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in directing.

A brilliant director, Polanski is impossible to discuss without mentioning his story. As a boy, he survived the Holocaust during World War II. His pregnant wife was killed by the Charles Manson gang in 1969. Perhaps this affected the character of the director. Nevertheless, Polanski is a genius who gave the world such paintings as Rosemary's Baby, Chinatown, and The Pianist.

10 Quentin Tarantino

This is one of the most respected directors to have emerged in recent decades. It's actually worth remembering how much of an impact he had when the movie first came out with Reservoir Dogs and then Pulp Fiction. Abandoning the usual rules of cinema, Tarantino introduced non-linear storylines, dialogue, and a certain glamor of violence that became its highlight.
