You’ve still got an elimination.. Do you want to make it official?

I'll say PTA though.
I want you to know you hurt me.


If it wasn't me, it might've been Bondo. :)

Yeah, I'm sure if I had been paying attention this would have been priority #1.

Anyway, given the current stock, I'm going with Denis Villeneuve because Prisoners was a vile piece of crap.

The Dardennes were mostly saved because Liege is just a wonderful city.

Forgot about Prisoners, that does deserve an elimination.

Sure. Asian cinema is overrated anyway, right?  :P

Just found this thread and feel like I am being punched over and over :P

I'd be real hard pressed to think of any of my favorite filmmakers who haven't made a bad movie. Like, I guess Steve McQueen and John Cameron Mitchell, each of whom I've seen only three films from? So it's hard for me to get too beaten down by anything in this thread.

I'm requesting Audiard. A PROPHET is great. RUST & BONE becomes a laborious melodrama. DHEEPAN becomes a laborious action thriller. THE SISTERS BROTHERS looks up my alley, but I have no faith in him as a director.

I hope someone takes Edgar Wright off. It was tempting, if only for BABY DRIVER.

Baby Driver had me considering it also.
