The 100% Club

I’m working toward watching 100% of several directors’ filmographies, and I’ll keep track of my progress on this page. I am not counting short films in most cases (exceptions for silent comedy directors will likely be made, or I will keep track of features and shorts separately).

Please note: Most information is currently taken from Flickchart. I need to check some of the directors against IMDb, as I think their complete filmography is not yet in Flickchart’s database. My percentage may change drastically once I do that.
