After attempting to compile a list of my favorite directors I have come to the conclusion that my knowledge and experience does not run deep enough for me to compile and submit a list for this top 100. That being said, my plan is to marathon the list that is developed by this project and come back next year ready to go.

I will make a few suggestions that missed the list last time however: Joe Wright, David Gordon Green, Cameron Crowe, Rob Reiner and John Hughes. Just a few FYC's. Excited to see the list!

All input is worth while, you should consider at least putting in a top 10.

That's never stopped me. ;D I'm planning on marathoning those on my ballot who I'm presently basing on only a couple films so they can either be more firmly enmeshed or else evicted.

Some of us just have more confidence in our inexperienced opinions than others.

The way I figure it, whatever mistakes I make will be balanced out by the masses of other wiser filmspotters than I.  I am just one small vote among the hordes.  Democracy in action!  :)

Great list corndog, I especially like seeing Gus Van Sant and Wilder so close to the top (watch Ace in the Hole if you haven't already as well as GVS's early stuff).  David Lean is also vastly underrated around these waters, and seeing Bergman is always a pleasure.  Unfortunately you did get some Zemeckis and Soderbergh on your list, try to wash them off.
