Based only on the new one, I think he's proven his greatness. I really need to see Adaptation.

I can take or leave his direction.

I've seen enough now to say I don't like his work.

Wonder why that isn't an option. . .

I don't even like Adaptation, but BJM and WTWTA are enough for me to count him as one of the best.
