Maybe we need a poll :). I'll think about all this some more and come up with some possibilities by the weekend.

Any idea where we will fall on director pairings? Obviously the Coens are a pairing, but how about the Disney team of Geronimi/Jackson/Luske? They've directed films separately and together, so where would they fall?

I'd be happy to participate in this.  I missed out on the last one.

This.

But obv, worry about this post-top 100.

Do eeeeeeeet!!! I got distracted by the Top 100 Films and stopped thinking about how long individual lists should be and so on but I'll post some thoughts over the weekend :).

Any idea where we will fall on director pairings? Obviously the Coens are a pairing, but how about the Disney team of Geronimi/Jackson/Luske? They've directed films separately and together, so where would they fall?

I'm inclined to consider them as separate unless they work exclusively as a team.

Another list to work on. Ok a suggestion for people to consider voting for.

Rolf de Heer

He has put his hand to a variety of films and styles, including silent (Dr. Plonk), sci-fi (Incident at Raven's Gate), and native Australian (Ten Canoes), but it is for "Bad Boy Bubby", a story of discovery, that he stands out (well for me).
