After Sam:
Satoshi Kon
Monte Hellman
Kim Ki-duk

And to stress a few names that haven't appeared here yet:
Henri-Georges Clouzot
Otokar Votocek
Yasujiro Ozu
Karel Zeman

And, why not: Michael Mann, and Walter Hill (who has done many shits, but some fantastic work too, and whose Long Riders come very close to Peckinpah's world)

All of his westerns or some of his westerns?

Corbucci was a very gifted director, unfortunately he did not made much of this talent in the context of his long career. Even his Spagies are a mixed bag.
He was the only other Italian western director who could rival Sergio Leone, but half of his westerns are not that good, or even a bit bad. But his best Spagies are often masterful directed unusual stuff.

I don't like the first two and the last two, but I love almost all other
(especially Django, Navajo Joe, Il Grande SilenzioGli Specialisti, Il Mercenario and Vamos a matar, compañeros)
Yes, he didn't have the grandeur and the perfectionism of Leone, but under certain aspects has been a director more revolutionary and radical than him...

A few words I wrote once about Corbucci's westerns:

Corbucci's highlights are The Great Silence and The Mercenary. Botha re daring films with excellent directing. Django ( a very influential film) and Vamos a matar Companeros contain also some brilliant stuff, but, alas, also some sloppy scenes.

Corbucci was one of the greatest western directors.

Great article, but I disagree on Navajo Joe, that I consider a revenge movie with a masterful construction.

Yeah, one of the greatest western directors of all time, at the level of the americans...
