and for clarification on rankings, did one vote earn 1 point (or was there a weighted component)? e.g., my 50 rank for Adam Curtis earned the same one point as your 1 rank for him?

Nope, points were weighted by rank. A #1 ranking earned 10pts, 2-10 earned 9 pts, 11-20 earned 8pts, 21-30 was 6, 31-40 was 4 and 41-50 was 2.

cool, i figured something like that. i wonder if i would have gamed a bit more... :)

Just a hint since you've been in the clink (I assume) for a while. If you bring up gaming lists you're gonna get shanked (to use a term you're used to now).

My 12 that didn't make it aka: the film is an overated medium for directors list

5   Chris Cunningham
13   Jonathan Glazer
20   Jonas Åkerlund
34   Ang Lee
37   Paul Verhoeven
42   Jean-Pierre Jeunet
43   Hammer & Tongs
45   Todd Haynes
47   Mark Romanek
48   Larry Clark
49   Anton Corbijn
50   Neveldine & Taylor

I'd definitely knock Rian Johnson down 10 and I'd give 10 to Soderbergh

Junior has the Borzage-shaped scar to prove it!

Speaking of which, why didn't you submit a list, hmm?

Afraid of shankings. Also, lazy and forgetful and busy.

sweet, hi tim :)
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.
