Interesting list

Thank you, I have fun with it.

When you have Bobcat Goldthwaith above Orson Welles and John Ford something must be wrong with your ratings.

Or haven't seen enough of both of them. And I hate the altars and high places that some directors have, let's dethrone some.

Very interesting. But your metrics place Joss Whedon over Ingmar Bergman...have you considered changing your ratings system?

Once I see more films by Bergman, his true mastery will come and he'll easily surpass Whedon.

Which ones from him have you watched?

I've seen 'Wild Strawberries,' 'The Seventh Seal,' and 'Persona' (his best IMO).

Only Wild Strawberries and Time of the Wolf.
