Watched this one a few weeks ago, and it was 50/50 for me. The ones that were good were pretty good, with a few being exceptionally good (U for Unearthed). But the ones that were bad were abysmally horrible. Each director(s) after being assigned a letter had 5 minutes max runtime and $5000 and complete creative freedom. It's like a mix tape, so everyone is going to get something different out of it depending on their preferences. Unforunately a lot of them go the shock/gross our route which just seems too juvenile.

Here's the run down of what I liked and what sucked.

Good
A (Nacho Vigalondo)
D (Marcel Sarmiento)
I (Jorge Michel Grau)
J (Yudai Yamaguchi)
M (Ti West)
N (Banjong Pisanthanakun)
O (Bruno Forzani)
P (Simon Rumley)
T (Lee Hardcastle)
U (Ben Wheatley)
Y (Jason Eisener)

Middle of the Road
H (Thomas Cappelen Malling)
K (Anders Morgenthaler)
L (Timo Tjahjanto)
Q (Adam Wingard)
X (Xavier Gens)

Bad
B (Adrián García Bogliano)
C (Ernesto Díaz Espinoza)
E (Angela Bettis)
F (Noboru Iguchi)
G (Andrew Traucki)
R (Srdjan Spasojevic)
S (Jake West)
V (Kaare Andrews)
W (Jon Schnepp)
Z (Yoshihiro Nishimura)
