Great list and presentation, pixote.
Kind of surprised to see Fukasaku there since you didn't come across as enthusiastic in his Director's Best Poll. Don't think I ever knew your feelings towards Tarantino and Malick.
Just reread that. Yeah, I really undersold him there. I should have clarified that I really liked the Yakuza Papers
. It's just that, at this remove, I couldn't say which of them was my favorite. That said, I was sort of surprised he made my list, too. In fact, a lot of the names up there surprised me.
