Ki-duk Kim will be on this list right?
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Mar 7 1:18
yes ofc! Only seen 2 films from him. Everyone on the list is 3+. Gonna add him when I've seen more.
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Mar 7 2:06
Herzog!!!
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Mar 7 2:48
Nice list, of your top 10, Sydney Lumet is my fave (also can't believe 12 Angry Men isn't higher on that list)
Posted: 5 years, 4 months ago at Jun 9 23:40
Nice list, Ingmar Bergman is my favorite director too. (Seventh Seal/Through a glass darkly and Summer Interlude are my favorites)
But what about Kar Wai Wong?
Posted: 5 years, 4 months ago at Jun 10 4:45
Only seen 2 films from Kar Wai Wong, but loved them both (Chungking Express, In the Mood for Love). He'll be in the list when I see a a couple more.

Very eclectic and fairly well judged on your ratings; I would've bumped up Barry Lyndon a bit more and knocked down 2001, Clockwork, Full Metal, Paths and The Shining several spots.

Also do my eyes deceive me or is there no Fellini on the list? Plenty of purists would be on to you armed with pitchforks for omitting a French auteur as well. Check some of these guys out if you haven't already.

Amazing list! Now i want to do one too!
P.S.The Purple rose of Cairo deserves more then 7
