Updating the list, because somehow Frank Capra escaped the basement and none of us knew. He was about to knock on the pantheon's doors, but I got him alright (adding in Maddin as well).

After prefers reliably mediocre to reliably Felliniesque (nothing pretentious about 'The White Shiek' and 'I Vitelloni', by the by... now, Peter Greenaway and Guy Maddin... THERE'S some deep dips into pretension!)

Raoul Walsh - 8
Dan O'Bannon - 3
W.S. Van Dyke - 6
Jacques Demy - 5
Federico Fellini - 6
Uwe Boll - 1

- Dan O'Bannon (protest vote: he's only made two movies! The pretty good 'Return of the Living Dead' and likewise 'Shatterbrain', but come one, man... TWO!)
+ Raoul Walsh (over 135 movie directorial credits from 1913-1964, and over a couple that are better than just pretty good!)
