Directors League

Basically, every director who I've seen 5+ films by is ranked here according to the mean average rating I've given to their work.

If you haven't already got all the data available to you, it may seem difficult to start as Letterboxd only reveals your 20 most watched directors on the stats page. Luckily, if you have an IMDb account you can export all the data you need quite…
