It is way too early to be running this poll

Don't look at me, I wasn't one of the people who consider him one of the 100 greatest directors of all time.

lol - all I was saying was that despite the brilliance of his first two films - he has even better to come!

I really liked Brick, maybe even loved it, but that's all I've seen so far.

Brick doesn't hold up upon repeats for me as well as Bloom, so that one.

The Brothers Bloom is great. Super fun. But Brick is transcendentally awesome.

I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

The Brothers Bloom, I did enjoy Brick, but the polish and experience he brought to The Brothers Bloom made it a better film.

I'll be seeing Looper tomorrow, but I'll bump this as I'm eager to see where others are going to rank the film...
