Famous film Web site “They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They?” (TSPDT) has compiled a list of the 21st Century’s Top 100 Directors. Among the three Taiwanese directors on the list, Taiwan’s two-time Oscar-winning director Ang Lee is ranked No. 10.


To qualify among the top 100 directors, each director needs to have a minimum of two movies released between 2000 and 2016 and to be cited in TSPDT’s list of Top 1,000 Films of the 21st Century, according to TSPDT. Taiwanese directors Tsai Ming-liang and Hou Hsiao-hsien also made it to the list at No. 34 and 36, respectively.


Hong Kong director Wong Kar-wai won the top spot on the list, followed by David Lynch of the US and then Michael Haneke of Austria. Taiwan is second only to the US, the UK, France and South Korea in terms of the number of directors on the list.
