Love that number 1 !

But no Kubrick in the top 100 at all ? I didn't get the feeling he was particularly disliked in here, so that's pretty surprising.

All this data I've been dying to share. It's fun, and if it leads people to watch some films by these Directors then that's a Win.

I'm working on a Top 50 Most Divisive right now. I'm raising the minimum vote threshold for that one so we don't have a person at the top who's only there because 2 people love them and the other 2 voters don't.
