I should have been placing bets on this one.  It's not often you find a sure thing that's quite this sure.
That's some catch, that Catch-22.

Ok, Polanski made something beautiful with The Pianist, i think he would be my second place, because i agree with XIXAX PTA was the best, well he must be one of the best filmmakers of these years, i can't wait for his next work!

I think Polanski's vision of the Holocaust was brilliant. Understated, minimalist, and sublimely poignant. He is my first choice, followed closely by PTA of course.
It is said that evil men have no songs. Why is it, then, that the Russians sing songs?

Yeah! P.T. Anderson forever! He really deserved it.
On my second place there would be Spike Jonze. "Adaptation" is really great, too.
