I've only seen Defending Your Life and Mother, I think.  Not yet sure how to vote.

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

I've seen Lost in America and Defending Your Life. I didn't care much for either one of them. I do like him as an actor, just not a fan of the films he's directed. Although I'll take him over Super Dave any day.

Lost in America is great.  Underrated filmmaker.

chesterfilms, great poll.  I like all his directorial efforts.  Love Lost in America, Mother, Modern Romance, and Real Life.  Hopefully others'll take your poll as a nudge to check out his work. 

I'm not keeping up with the dictator club, but are you participating and have you dictated Lost in America to anyone?

He's awesome on Weeds!

Finding Nemo.

And Hank Scorpio in "You Only Move Twice".
