Qualification for this list is that I have seen at least four films with some directorial involvement by them. The idea being that if I've seen a number of their films, there must be something worthwhile to their work.

Some of these ratings were done quite a while back, and I'm not sure if I still agree with them. And there's some directors I could add to the list, but it has been ages since I've seen certain films and don't feel comfortable rating them based on my vague memories.

Nice!

I wanna see all those Takeshi Kitano films. But a '3' for A Scene at the Sea? I heard it was pretty great. I'll have to check it out.

And I hope you don't mind if I shamelessly rip your list off...

Feel free to rip this list off. =)

I may have been too hard on A Scene at the Sea. It was the second Kitano film I saw and really wasn't what I was expecting. It's just a mute/deaf guy quitting his job as a trash collector and trying to surf. I might rewatch it someday to see if maybe I missed something, but I thought it was boring the first time through.

oh so you are one of the crazies who thinks for a few dollars more is the best of the dollars trilogy... haha... either way great list, i can't really argue against any leone film... but if you haven't see OUATIAmerica and West

haha, but For a Few Dollars More is the best in the series! I really do need to see more of Leone's work though.

i actual prefer fistful to it... and gbu to both of them... i love em all but fistful really is great.. i'm even close to ranking it ahead of gbu.

anyway all of the Once Upon A Time... trilogy is much better imo.

I loved Dolls .

It such an under rated film everyone must see.

Peter Jackson has filed a super ultimate director lawsuit! against New Line Cinema.

I don't mean to imply that Jackson doesn't deserve the money (media companies are, as a general rule, evil.) I'm just stunned that Jackson might be paid more than the film(s)'s entire shooting budget... and that his $20 million salary for King Kong is just an advance against his profit participation.

The Frighteners was made for around $30 million. Meet the Feebles cost $750,000.

These lawsuits seem to be pretty common. The producer of Chicago claims he's owed $25 million. It's amazing how much money is being thrown around in Hollywood.

Have you seen Heavenly Creatures by Peter Jackson ?

I've heard good things about Heaenly Creatures, but, sadly, I haven't seen it yet.

I really like this list and am really impressed with your loyalty to your directors.

Thanks! I hope this list gets at least one person interested in the work of one or some of these directors.

Nice lists! I hope you dont mind that I rip off your format...

Youve seen a TON more Miike than I have; Ive only seen less than 10. That sucks you have such a bad impression of John Waters. I would say keep trying, but if you didnt even like Desperate Living which is my fave then I guess youre just not a fan. You should at least see Pink Flamingos though just to say you have.

I agree with a lot of your ratings and feel pretty close to the same in a lot of respects, but there are a few things Id like to point out. One: you NEED to see some better Coen Brothers films than what you have listed. My three faves: The Man Who Wasnt There, Blood Simple, and O Brother arent listed. I hated Barton Fink though. And I need to rewatch Big Lebowski; at the time it came out I absolutely hated it.

Im surprised you havent seen any Polanski. Or maybe its just that youve seen less than 4?

For Romero, I highly recommend you check out 'The Crazies' and 'Bruiser'. Those and Dawn Of The Dead are actually the only ones Ive seen of his believe it or not. You also need to see Insomnia (Danish original and Nolan remake).

You havent seen 'City Of Lost Children'??!?!?!!???!

A few other films I highly recommend to you since you are heavily into Asian films: Suna No Onna, Yuke Yuke Nidome no Shojo, Onibaba, and Uzumaki.

The format isn't anything special, so I don't mind anyone cloning it.

I do indeed need to see more Coen Brothers, Romero, and a few other films mentioned. I believe I've seen 3 by Polanski, so he'll make the list when I get around to seeing another. But, yeah, not a fan of Waters. I gave him a shot, but didn't really find much of interest.

I have to say you're the most unique critic I've seen. But Shining is NOT Kubricks' best film by a long-shot.
