Tarantino is too high. I mean, I know that he's well regarded around here, but I'm still surprised he beat out Miyazaki.

Aronofsky and Fincher don't belong on it.

My 2012 project is to get Ophuls on the next FS list. Without him, there would be no Kubrick.

I completely agree.  Same with Hitchcock and Kubrick... I mean, beating out Miyazaki?  Unthinkable.
