10. Anthony Mann
Chris Fujiwara

Best known for his Westerns starring James Stewart, Anthony Mann also directed a distinctive series of crime thrillers in the late 1940s and did excellent work in other genres. In Mann's cinema, the frame is filled with hidden traps and dangers, which reflect the obsessional motives and points of weakness in his protagonists' psyches. Mann's best films sustain a double movement, taking their characters on a complex itinerary through changing landscapes while concentrating with increasing severity and abstraction on symbolic and internal conflicts.
