This list is limited to directors whose first full length feature was an independent or foreign language film and who subsequently continued to make other noteworthy and interesting films.

Unfortunately the list criteria caused some great films/directors to be omitted; for example "The Usual Suspects" by Bryan Singer, since he directed one unnoteworthy low budget feature a couple years earlier.

The films selected, however, do demonstrate the early promise of the associated director and feature striking visuals and/or unusual and unique scripts and characters.
