Did he know you were one of those people?

He did. One of our many quarreling points.

Ugh, whatever happened to simple lists that didn't make my browser choke?

Pssh....those days are long gone.

Great lists and really cool presentations, GC and toro. Now we're going to have to work extra hard to make the final list pretty!

Please also PM me your lists in in this format in addition to posting here.

toro, we're accepting lists of 50 to make a final list of 100 directors. We found that 50 worked well last time with every director on the list receiving a fair number of votes at the end. So can I just use your top 50?

Edit: Lovely list, MT.  Especially love seeing S. Ray that high on your list :).

I have already made a list of 51 directors. Also, Corey, I lied. Steven Spielberg is under consideration. But I'll probably cut him out to put Buñuel in instead.

Now just to figure out how I order this mess into a list that is even more messy and incoherent.

My list has been finalized (on the first page) with a bit of presentation. Enjoy.
