They're bold. They're daring. And, according to iTunes, they're rebel, renegade directors. The iTunes store lists 12 "Rebel, and Renegade Directors" as part of their "iTunes Essentials: Independent Films." We recently wrote about the 10 Directors to Watch according to iTunes and that list was much more diverse than this one (are there no rebellious, renegade women directors?).

Check out the list below (along with the film that landed them on the list):

1. Quentin Tarantino ("Inglourious Basterds")

2. Nicolas Winding Refn ("Drive")

3. Darren Aronofsky ("Black Swan")

4. Michel Gondry ("Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind")

5. Christopher Nolan ("Memento")

6. David O. Russell ("Flirting with Disaster")

7. Gus Van Sant ("Drugstore Cowboy")

8. David Lynch ("Blue Velvet")

9. Spike Jonze ("Being John Malkovich")

10. Alex Cox ("Repo Man")

11. Gregg Araki ("Mysterious Skin")

12. David Cronenberg ("Videodrome")

No Jane Campion, Catherine Hardwicke, Andrea Arnold, Sofia Coppola, Mary Harron, Patty Jenkins, Miranda July, Kimberly Peirce or Kathryn Bigelow? Who else would you like to see on this list?
