I definetely would of put PTA higher, around 13 or 14. But the list is pretty good. I can't argue with much of it. I'm just happy some good filmmakers are getting love (Almodovar).
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Who was the top 5?

The top 5 are as follows:

5. Terrance Malick
4. Steven Soderbergh
3. Coen Brothers
2. Martin Scorsese
1. David Lynch


I'm glad to see PTA on their, but I don't know where the hell they're coming from when they rated his work.  

This is what they said:
There is something wonderfully fearless about 33-year-old Paul Thomas Anderson. His two best pictures (Boogie Nights and Magnolia) are works of gob-smacking ambition in one so young - lush, multi-layered ensemble pieces that spotlight the damaged souls of his native San Fernando Valley. But let's not forget the recent Punch-Drunk Love, starring Adam Sandler and Emily Watson. Smaller in scale but no less turbulent, this undervalued effort is like a nail bomb in the guise of a romantic comedy.
Substance 16
Look 16
Craft 17
Originality 17
Intelligence 15
Total 79

Intelligence 15?????  Substance 16????  NO 18's or higher!?!

IDK.......whatever I guess. :roll:

i disagree with terrance  -- his body of  work does not merit #5
