I've seen some of his work, but without having ever watched the Decalogue, I'm abstaining from voting.

Decalogue isn't a movie.

This came up in the Von Trier thread too.  I tend to be liberal with those kind of distinctions.  And besides, it did have a theatrical release.  Feel free not to vote for it if you don't want to.

I don't think he would make movies after Red. Although, he did write some scripts.

Yeah he said he was done, but who knows.  He might have ended up making his Heaven/Hell/Purgatory trilogy.  I saw Tykwer's Heaven and thought it was pretty good (and it has Kieslowski's signatures all over it).  Anyone see the other two, by Tanovic and Mucha?
