I like how it implicitly suggests that there is no actual reason for any of the other directors to be on the list :)

I like how Kevin Smith is sneaking on to a lot of lists at 50 or otherwise near the end. It is everyone saying "I really love his films but I'm not sure I can justify putting him higher on directorial talent." Or at least that would be the interpretation based on the discussion after I posted my list with him in the #5 spot.

I like his films and I am interested in any new films that he puts out, which is why he made my list.

@flieger: well this will disgust you even more then - I bumped him off #50 to add Kevin Smith :p

I couldn't leave the director of one the ultimate films ever off my list. I mean when you compare Clerks to Rio Bravo or His Girl Friday - Clerks is the clear winner!!!!

As for Lewis, he only made one good film and he never let anyone watch it! I mean you have seen the nutty professor haven't you.....eeew!


@Bondo: It is Kevin's dialogue that I admire more than his direction - although he is getting better! Sometimes I wonder how his films would go with a different director, such as Joss Whedon.


I just remembered I forgot Jan ävankmajer - who I would probably put around the mid 20s, knocking Mr Smith to 51, and Hawks to 52. Looking at my list I probably would have done a slight reshuffle, but not too much - like Dardennes and Hou Hsiao-hsien both could have been a little higher.  I originally put about 80 names down that I thought were in the elite column, and had to cut back to reach my 50, so there have been a few cuts that were hard to make.

So, final deadline for the ballots is 11th Dec at noon. The results will be announced in chat (and posted on the forum) on Sunday 12th December at 2 PM EST. Put on your party hats and be there!

Also, please check this list and make sure your name is on it if you've sent me a ballot.
