Any predictions on what the Top 10 will look like?

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Oh I dunno, I was thinking Moore might miss the top 10 myself despite probably being one of the most seen directors.

Maybe Exit Through The Gift Shop will ride its wave to number 1...

My assumption is that Hoop Dreams will be number 1 as well.

Docs is my favorite genre and the one where I pretty like/love them all. This list will make me happy no matter what.

I've seen about 10 films on this list, so I'm not qualified to speak on it's overall quality, yet I am very happy for the #1 pick. It really is the documentary to end all other documentaries.

I certainly will be using this list to check out other documentaries that jump out to me. Which means just about all the ones that don't involve bands or politics. I should maybe end up with about 10 after that.  ;D

If something in the results irritates you, remember, it is probably my fault.

Also too, I've seen 72 of the films on the top-100. A lot of the music/movie about movies ones will continue to be skipped.
