I'm glad somebody else thinks so. Maybe I'll complete the 11-20 section of my list and find room for him.  :)

worm, great list, and presentation.  even though i'm not familiar with five of your directors, and barely familiar with a few more, it really seems fabulous!  and, i'm very happy Denis snuck in at 20.  the trailer from Le Fils was wonderful, it brought back how amazing that film is; and their other film is L'Enfant :)  i plan on making your list a touchstone for future rentals :)
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.
