If you’re any kind of movie fan, you can no doubt name the directors of The Dark Knight, Superman Returns, Trainspotting, Wall-E, The Bourne Ultimatum, V for Vendetta, Fight Club, etc. etc. Cinephiles know the big-name directors, and they know their resumes.

But, do you know what they look like? Oh, sure: You know what Steven Spielberg, Judd Apatow, and Martin Scorsese look like. But what those A-list directors don’t do their own press, who don’t show up on talk shows and commercials and who aren’t fodder for the paparazzi? For such well-paid, well-known people, isn’t it funny that we don’t know what most directors look like?

That’s the topic of this week’s quiz. I’ll give you a picture, you tell me the director. I think this would be a damn near impossible quiz without multiple choice answers, but the multiple choices may allow you to narrow them down. That said, you’ll probably be surprised to learn just how few directors you know by their face.

There are 22 questions — it shouldn’t take you more than 5 minutes to complete. And, as always, brag about your scores in the comments section.
