Flavorwire has compiled 10 filmmakers' Top 10 Films lists. Included are Martin Scorsese (who lists Powell and Pressburger's "The Red Shoes" and Renoir's "The River," among others ), Stanley Kubrick (who singles out Chaplin's "City Lights" and Antonioni's "La notte"), and Woody Allen (a fan of Bergman's "Seventh Seal" and Kurosawa's "Rashomon").

Flavorwire has compiled 10 filmmakers' Top 10 Films lists. Included are Martin Scorsese (who lists Powell and Pressburger's "The Red Shoes" and Renoir's "The River," among others ), Stanley Kubrick (who singles out Chaplin's "City Lights" and Antonioni's "La notte"), and Woody Allen (a fan of Bergman's "Seventh Seal" and Kurosawa's "Rashomon"). 

Lena Dunham is the sole female representative, and also the only filmmaker to list films made by women in her Top 10: Agnes Varda's "La pointe courte," "Le bonheur," "Vagabond" and "Cleo from 5 to 7" all tie in her estimation, while Dunham also praises Andrea Arnold's "Fish Tank." 

It should be noted that these lists hail from different sources and have differing criteria; some are self-made, some are from the Sight & Sound poll in 2012, some are limited to Criterion-released titles (such as Nolan's, Dunham's and Johnson's), some include more than 10 titles. Kubrick's, for example, was created in 1963. Flavorwire has the details on when and where each list comes from.
