Pixote's List

Win

Nice to see Murnau so high up, he totally deserves it.

Kenji Mizoguchi a great artist who I am pleasantly surprised to see make the list.

Awesome to see Andrzej Wajda, I hope one day he will make the big list.

Jean Renoir was an amazing recent discovery for me, mostly thanks to these lists.

Fail

I was wondering who was the one person who put freaken Michael Moore on their list, I was thinking Fly or Bondo but I should have known it was you all along.

Pier Paolo Pasolini - Pretentious artiste is artistically pretentious.  His movies need to remade by Michael Bay.
I’ve lied to men who wear belts. I’ve lied to men who wear suspenders. But I’d never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

Everyone should definitely at least watch Kanal, I can't see how someone wouldn't like it, even though it's not my favorite of his.

Whether there is a Top Directors List this year I want to list some of the directors that would be on mine this year. I had a three good films minimum requirement to my decisions last year and I still think 3 films is a bare minimum, if you want to call a director great. A year's film-watching mean the following would now be in my top 100;

Ingmar Bergman for Wild Strawberries, Smiles of a Summer Night, Persona
Agnes Varda Cleo, Le bonheur, Beaches of Agnes
Atom Egoyan The Sweet Hereafter, Ararat, Felicia's Journey
Francois Truffaut Tirez sur le pianiste, 400 Blows, Last metro, Stolen Kisses, Love on the run, Pocket Money, Day for Night (would probably be top ten now)
Hal Ashby The Last Detail, Being There, Harold & Maude
Jack Clayton The Innocents, Room At The Top, The Pumpkin Eater
Jaques Becker Casque d'or, Le trou, Tocuhez pas au grisbi
Jules Dassin Naked City, Night & the City, Rififi
Luchino Visconti Rocco & his Brothers, The Leopard, Death In Venice
Luis Bunuel Viridiana, Belle de Jour, The Exterminating Angel
Michael Haneke Cache, White Ribbon, Funny Games
Mike Leigh Abigails Party, Naked, Secrets & Lies, vera Drake, Happy-go-lucky, Another Year (a Leigh year)
Sam Fuller Shock Corridor, Naked Kiss, Pickup, Forty Guns
Werner Herzog Fitzcarraldo, Aguirre, Cobra Verde (the obsession trilogy)
Wim Wenders Paris Texas, Wings of Desire, The American Friend, Hammett

with apologies to JC Mitchell whose Hedwig & Shortbus are terrific whereas Rabbit Hole is a smelly mess.

If whoever usually does it every year doesn't want to I can run the list.

How does a November 30th deadline work for people?

Pixote doesn't have Tarkovsky or Ophuls on his list, but has Tarantino and Moore on it. 

 :(

Otherwise, nice list, I guess...

I would submit a ballot if this were done again, I basically have been keeping a running personal top-70 over in my directors marathon thread.
