Just wanted to express my love for Elaine May, who I shamefully forgot about, based on the brilliance of A New Leaf and The Heartbreak Kid, the great first 20 or so minutes of Ishtar, and some fine, fine moments in Mikey and Nicky.

I still have never finished The Heartbreak Kid. Just too uncomfortable and painful.

I think you can "handle" it if you can "handle" Goodbye Dragon, Inn; The Wayward Cloud; Funny Ha Ha; and Mutual Appreciation, for example.  Do you watch Louie?  To categorize grossly, they're (The Heartbreak Kid and Louie) in the same school of uncomfortable-cringe comedy.

hmmm, you have a point there iKeith! How about putting a few directors on those lists who haven't made a [decent] film yet?  ;D

Neveldine & Taylor > the Coen Brothers.  :(

we need a brothers poll:

Coens, Dardennes, Quay, Hugheses, Wachowskis (Ridley & Tony should do more projects together)
