My favorite storyteller as a director was Eric Rohmer who also wrote the screenplays. Some of his films:
My Night at Maud's
Claire's Knee
Pauline at the Beach
Full Moon in Paris
The Green Ray
A Tale of Springtime

Woody Allen is an equally great storyteller. However, most of Allen's films are specific to his personal world. The films of Eric Rohmer are more universal.

George Roy Hill-1921-2002

While some of his movies were pleasant popular favorites(The Sting, Butch Cassidy, Slap Shot); he did a masterful job on a very difficult book: Slaughterhouse 5.
It remains one of my favorite movies. The score and screenplay are superb and the movie was applauded by the author Kurt Vonnegut.
Quote:
"I love George Roy Hill and Universal Pictures, who made a flawless translation of my novel Slaughterhouse-Five to the silver screen ... I drool and cackle every time I watch that film, because it is so harmonious with what I felt when I wrote the book."

Paul W.S. Anderson is best director and writer.

Peter Jackson - wow, lovely
Woody Allen, pre-musicals...sheesh
The Coens - I owe them! Laughed so hard.
Spike Jonze
Ang Lee

@Lash,
Hey Lash! I truly love Wes Anderson. I'm not sure why I'm hesitating on seeing Moonrise Kingdom while it's still in the theater.

@tsarstepan,
I'll have to work this up, in no special order.

Might take me a while.

@tsarstepan,
We saw it, Tsar! Hey!

We'd seen Tennenbaums, and loved it - but my son started following Wes - and forced me to watch "Life Aquatic" twice...until I "got it." haha.... I'm glad he did. Wes may be, for some, "an acquired taste," but his beautiful moments are truly splendid. There were nice moments - several - in" Moonrise Kingdom"....and the usual elements. And, I'm sure you know - he was able to lure some pretty cool people to the cast.

I'd love to talk to you about it after you see it...see what you thought.

@tsarstepan,

I force-fed my fiance Tennenbaums last night, and he loved it. He had some vague recollection of having watched it and not liked it....WRONG!

That's my favorite, too. Perfection.

2. Aquatic
3. Rushmore
4. Moonrise

Holy hell. Look, Tsar!

@Lash,
That's very good news indeed. Hope it will bring a fully national theatrical release and box office success as well.
