Nolan down 10, Ford up ten, I guess, so he's in the top 20.

Ozu's my most underrated.  He didn't make the top 50 and I have him at #4.

"Morally bankrupt Eastwood".  LOL, I missed you skjerva.  Hope you at least dropped Kubrick if you dropped Hitch.

Never got around to this, but am rather pleased with the list. I didnt see Tati or Kobayashi on a glance, which are probably the entries my list my have helped sneak in.

Tati was one of the three in my Top 20 that didn't make the list, along with Sternberg and Rossellini.  Don't know if your vote would have made a difference. . . .

Kitano made the list. That's all that matters. ;D

Melvil gets it. KITANO!!
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

You are all terrible people...

who want to move Nolan (or Boyle) down further.

I guess we can't have any fun, quality filmmaking on the list, just boring old stuff.

Boyle made my top 100.  He's good.

Directors from my top 50 who didn't make the cut:

#12 - Kenji Mizoguchi
#14 - Emir Kusturica
#15 - Aki Kaurismäki
#24 - Stan Brakhage
#26 - Anthony Mann
#28 - Ritwik Ghatak
#30 - Anh Hung Tran
#32 - Kon Ichikawa
#35 - Jacques Tati
#38 - Alain Resnais
#40 - Abbas Kiarostami
#41 - Roy Andersson
#43 - Elia Kazan
#47 - Yimou Zhang
#48 - Michelangelo Antonioni
#49 - John Cassavetes
#50 - Wen Jiang


None of these really surprise me except Mann and Tati.  I replaced Mizoguchi with Kieslowski in my top 10, that may have been enough points-wise to take him out.  But as I've said, I'm starting to cool on Mizoguchi anyway.

if you could slide one director up ten and one director down ten (and not off the list), what would you do?

Ridley Scott +10
Tarantino -10

My top 50 that didn't make the list. Wasn't expecting anything for Kusturica, he isn't well known around here. I think Assayas' time will come soon enough.

2. Emir Kusturica
5. John Cassavetes
26. Olivier Assayas
29. Milos Forman
32. Hal Ashby
44. Jonathan Demme
47. Michael Winterbottom
48. Noah Baumbach
49. Peter Weir

While I'm at it 10 directors that have strong chances of making my next year's list, assuming Jonze puts out a movie next year.

Spike Jonze
Todd Haynes
Bernardo Bertolucci
Ki-duk Kim
Fritz Lang
Peter Greenaway
Alan J. Pakula
Ernst Lubitsch
Peter Bogdanovich
Buster Keaton
Alfonso Cuarón
