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

Seems stupid to post any further results during the Holidays.

Also, I'm surprised nobody mentioned Yorgos Lanthimos (Doogtooth, Alps, The Lobster). I guess most people only have access to those 3 and The Lobster is too new for many to have seen it.

Rating him would be difficult.  I saw Dogtooth and Alps and both were hard to love, but display a hand ready to try a unique approach that doesn't always work.  I'd want to wait to give a rating until after I see Lobster.

Having seen Dogtooth and The Lobster, I can't wait for his next thing. That ambition coupled with that skill is a reasonably confident 8/10 for me.

And yeah, Christmas time is going to be tough to find a spare minute!

I think I'm going to use these listings to do a Directors Marathon.  In order - one film each for all of Group 1, then Group 2, etc.  I thought about doing it with the Directors Index but couldn't get my head around it.

But there are a lot of "big-name" directors whose works I've never seen because I just never think about them when I'm choosing a film to watch.
