GREAT DIRECTORS UNDERRATED IN THEIR OWN COUNTRIES

Krzysztof Kieœlowski is more respected and popular abroad than in Poland. I heard that Swedish people doesn't like Ingmar Bergman's films (he's respected more for theatrical plays he directed). Do you know other great directors who are underrated in their own countries?

I've heard that Woody Allen is underrated in America.

The French have much more respect for Brian DePalma.

The French have a lot more respect for selected American directors over actual Americans: specifically David Lynch, Jim Jarmusch, De Palma, for example.

Of course, Kurasawa. Nagisa Oshima. I imagine most respected Japanese directors are appreciated most outside of Japan. You can probably throw Takashi Miike in there as well.

Almodovar. I heard from some Spanish students that his movies aren't so revered in Spain.
