Those of you that haven't yet submitted a ballot for the Top Director's Poll should totally put together a list (upto 50 directors and ranked) and PM it to me by tomorrow.

DO IT!

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

This is another reason I don't have a lot of women in my top 100... so many of them seem to ruin their own careers.

Er ... there's got to be a better way to phrase that.

Most directors "ruin their own careers" ... it's not a gender-specific thing.

Yes, it is like some do not know either when to stop, or they get stuck in a rut, resulting in cookie-cutter films. It is why directors like Danny Boyle are so enjoyable, you do not know what he will be creating next. Unlike the Michael May's of this world, where you know exactly what you will get next.

This is.....Not your list?
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

I cannot believe it doesn't have a DVD release. Seth Green and Jack Black, hello! Anyway, sadly that course is a patchwork of the various hills around the city. Devil's Backbone does not exist. But I have noticed a lot of the locations they did film at.
