Except for composers who have only done less than a half dozen or so films, probably not.
Goldsmith, I probably am at 90-95% of seeing every film (not TV of course).

I've seen every Winona Ryder film, though.

Directors are a little easier...I've seen every film directed by Akira Kurosawa and by Woody Allen. Also Stanley Kubrick & Sam Peckinpah, but those two are not so hard considering their low output. Probably could come up with a lot more. But many directors I really like, such as Eric Rohmer, Fellini, John Ford, Anthony Mann, Robert Bresson...no.

Composers are harder to be completist about...sometimes you really, really, really don't want to see some films. They will totally spoil the music for you. Morricone is a perfect example of this. He's scored many great films, but the clunkers are awful. Some could easily make the worst thing Jerry has scored seem classic by comparison.

Oh yeah, and some more....I've also seen everything by Spielberg except one or two TV episodes and the films he did as a kid. Same with Ridley Scott -- everything except all the thousands of commercials he did.

I think when you get a favourite composer, director, actor or whatever, you're automatically inclined to see and hear as much of them as possible. Even -- and perhaps especially -- the obscure stuff.

I've seen all of Chaplin's released films (and have them on DVD), apart from 'Her Friend the Bandit', a Keystone short from 1914 which is believed to be his only lost film. He was the greatest of them all.

It is fascinating that the genocide that was perform on silent films for the most part, [most are gone with the wind] there is only one lost film from CHAPLIN.Makes one think how carelessly human beings can handle stuff, but if more effort and desire is put into achieving a goal one can lower the level of tragedy that befalls products and humans. Effort can be a powerful force.

I have heard every one of MARVIN HAMLISCH'S SCORES except for 2 TV movies in the late 80's.
