^ That's how I felt too. It doesn't delve nearly as deep as it should have.

Cool, adding those.

I chose directors based on their contribution to film history, their frequency of work (I donít think there are many one-off directors on here excluding the up-and-comers from the 2010s), and on the basis of having a singular voice or not. I know I used film lists like Sight & Soundís Top 250, some by AFI, The Criterion Collection website index, and wiki pages on various film movements. It was compiled several months ago - found it on my computer and added the wiki links yesterday, so I donít completely remember. In the other thread I know the Asian countries are sparse just because my knowledge in that area is lacking.

At the end of the day itís subjective. I included Seimeitz based on the strength of her work in ďThe Girlfriend ExperienceĒ, which will now amount to over 10 hours of material written and directed by her.

If docs count, Lost in La Mancha and Hearts of Darkness should be on there too.

I wonder if Bowfinger holds up...I remember loving it.

No disrespect but how old are you, FilmCell?

Will Smith enjoys being a celebrity. Perhaps PTA does not.

He's NOT a celebrity. Even amongst directors he's not a celebrity. Which is why I was put off by his attitude because he was acting like his life is filled with people recognizing him on the street.

It reminded me of the infamous "little Ronnie Howard" comment and when he snapped on that reporter about Tom Cruise.

"Infamous" lol. Clearly trolling.
