I didnt get a list in either but the groups list looks great. Awesome work W@W and everyone.

This, exactly. Maybe I could have helped to put Kieszlowski, Almodovar and Powell & Pressburger a spot or two higher (They would have been my top 3; not sure in which order, though), but this list is pretty awesome as it is.

What's the rationale behind the bolded titles?

I was wondering this as well.

Well, it's our highly subjective take on the directors' most interesting films or films that we really would like more people to watch. Sometimes it's just films that we're most excited to catch up on. Mostly, it's just us having some fun with the list :).

A pretty good list overall, though I didn't really focus on specific rankings, more on the names that made it.

Thanks to worm/roujin
