17. Ida Lupino
Chris Fujiwara

Renowned as an actress for the toughness and sensitivity that made her a favorite of Raoul Walsh, Nicholas Ray, and other great directors, Lupino brought the same qualities to her direction of a small group of still underrated low-budget films. She once said that the subject of her films was "People who get lost, who really don't have a home anymore." Lupino finds powerful images of displacement to convey this theme, while bringing great concentration and compassion to the predicament of characters who are forced to act against their wills and who search blindly for freedom.
