Basing this on a comment from a thread in Software. I'll pick Aki Kaurismaki, whom I've added to my list of favorite directors - only one of his films (The Man Without a Past) is available on R1 DVD. (Fortunately I have the rest of his films on R2 discs.) Jim Jarmusch on Kaurismaki: "He's one of my favourite film-makers. I love his films, I love the simplicity of them, I love the dry sense of humour of them, I love the bleakness. Here is a film-maker who uses limitations as a strength, and that's something I've tried to learn to do myself. I get very moved by Kaurismaki's films."
