7.  Clouzot (Wages of Fear) - Sad to see I was alone in voting for him, every bit as good as Renoir.

How do you rank and rate his films?

He would've received a vote from me had I decided to include more directors on my ballot.  Wages and Quai are in my Top 100.  Le Corbeau, Diabolique, and Picasso are great as well.

I have only seen his three most popular, but I hear there are other good ones.

1.  Wages of Fear - In my top 100.
2.  Diabolique
3.  The Raven

He was supposed to direct a movie called Inferno, which was allegedly to be a Citizen Kane like masterpiece, but he got sick during filming and died.  A new documentary about the would be film just came out, check it out.

I’ve lied to men who wear belts. I’ve lied to men who wear suspenders. But I’d never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.
