20 Overlooked Movies Made By Famous Directors

Here are some great films which often do not seem to get the attention they sorely deserve. They come from famous directors, or directors that have at least enjoyed some degree of success. Whether they were small-budget debuts, box-office bombs, critically panned, overshadowed by the director’s previous or future work or simply never caught on with their contemporary audiences – they are still sadly overlooked.

Some of the following titles may have since garnered small cult followings but are still arguably under the radar. Though this list is not always suggesting that the mentioned films are the respected director’s best work, these films are still definitely worth a watch.
