I put Inside Out and Under the Skin at the same 2.5 star level.

I was referring to when you said Pete Docter had a great début three movies streak. IO is the third of those, right?

I was referring to the overall level of praise for those three films, which I find equal to Glazer.

My personal opinion of each trio also matches up. But if you take my opinion of one set they won’t match the general consensus of the other.

Re: 1SO vs. All the Directors - Baz Luhrmann

#37. Baz Luhrmann Ranked List

I like Baz, while agreeing on his faults. I wish he made more features, it seems most of his recent work is elaborate commercials.

I'm tempted to watch the Pilot for The Get Down, but that's the only episode he directed and I'd rather catch up with that apart from being part of Luhrmann's career.

1SO vs. All the Directors - François Truffaut

#38. François Truffaut Ranked List

My love for Truffaut rivals his love for cinema. I always see him as separate from the French New Wave, above it. My extensive Marathon of his films - along with Akira Kurosawa and Satyajit Ray - is one of my favorite times at the movies. Still there are some gaps to fill and I have down to look at:
The Soft Skin (1964)
The Woman Next Door (1981)
Confidentially Yours (1983)

Isn't Vivement Dimanche one of the most famous Truffauts? It was the first I ever watched and the one I have liked best so far. Or at all even.

How do you rank Truffaut among directors?

Not here it isn't, not by a longshot. Truffaut is far from a household name here, so if anyone knows him it's usually for his most canonical work, The 400 Blows (or as "that French dude from Close Encounters of the Third Kind").

Truffaut features by number of votes on IMDb:

The 400 Blows (79,502)
Fahrenheit 451 (35,523)
Jules et Jim (30,342)
Day for Night (16,065)
Shoot the Piano Player (14,132)
The Last Metro (10,061)
Stolen Kisses (9,391)
The Bride Wore Black (7,146)
The Wild Child (6,369)
Bed & Board (6,296)
The Story of Adele H. (6,118)
The Woman Next Door (5,696)
The Soft Skin (5,367)
The Man Who Loved Women (5,161)
Mississippi Mermaid (4,787)
Love on the Run (4,741)
Confidentially Yours (4,559)
Small Change (4,473)
Two English Girls (3,847)
The Green Room (2,153)
A Gorgeous Kid Like Me (1,686)

I wouldn't say it's among his better known films here either. Definitely no in the top 5. Les 400 coups and Jules et Jim are definitely way above everything else, and then it's La nuit américaine/Day for Night, Le dernier métro and Tirez sur le pianiste probably... and then the other Doinel films collectively.

I haven't seen Pearl Jam Twenty, which is great timing being DOCember, and I have to admit I'm interested in We Bought a Zoo - is it actually better than it sounds? - and curious about Aloha - is it actually a bigger disaster than Elizabethtown?

Aloha is very good. I also like We Bought a Zoo. Both much better than Elizabethtown which, while not a disaster, is probably his weakest movie.
