Top 20 Directors and Their 5 Best Films

I've attempted to rank directors in order of preference, and give the top 5 films in order too.

This obviously excluded directors with less than five films, which is a shame as I'd like to have represented people like Charlie Kaufman etc.
I have also excluded directors who I love but have not seen 5 films of, such as Robert Bresson and Andrei Tarkovsky.
