One-Hit Wonder Movie Directors
When we think of some directors, instantly one masterpiece comes to mind... and not much else. This isn't to say that their other films are bad per se (though some are...) but rather that they just haven't come close to the iconic stature and 'masterpiece status' of the films listed below. Ultimately, these films stand out easily as the best from their respective directors' track record. (Please note: These films don't have to be the first film of a director's career. Furthermore, if an actor-turned-director created only one film BUT it became a critical hit, this will qualify. Films must also have a minimum 7.4 rating.) Which of these films from a one-hit wonder movie director was your favorite? After voting, you may discuss these rare gems here.

A nickname is an informal name given to someone or something, often preceded with a.k.a. (though sometimes it's the real name that goes after).
