Any requests?  I kind of feel like doing a couple of these today (instead of actually getting any work done).

Duplass Brothers? Barry Sonnenfield?

 :)

I'd like to see how a Stephen Herek poll would come out.

Anyone looking for a nearly complete list of Directors that are worth poll consideration They Shoot Pictures has an index of filmmakers that would hurt my brain to marathon.

I'm using it to double-check, but don't want to add someone like Lucas Belvaux just to learn hardly anybody has seen any of his work and line up a film I'm not excited to watch. (All of this excludes that Lucas is probably an excellent director.) They also include names like Bill Bennett (Two if By Sea), whose inclusion I treat with great suspicion.

I have been unable to find anything by Jean-Claude Brisseau except for The Exterminating Angels, which is the one that nobody likes. I want to see A Brutal Game, Celine and Sound and Fury and hope to find them in time.

Next on my list to de-Shame is Andrew Bujalski, but after Computer Chess I'm not making an effort. If I find Funny Ha Ha, I'll watch it. I'm not interested in Mutual Appreciation or Beeswax.

I should watch The Exterminating Angels. I've liked every Brisseau I've seen so far.
