    I enjoyed reading your piece Kevin. Nice. I would love to see you tackle  top 15.

    I notice that, few ever mentions Baz Luhrmann’s Strictly Ballroom. I have to maintain that this is his best film. At least, it’s my personal favorite of his; his first.

    Truly great list. Christopher Nolan would be my #1 choice as well although “Inception” shouldn’t be counted in 2000s. My favorite mention is, however, Alfonso Cuaron who impressed me so much with not only fantastic “Children of Men” but also with “HP and the Prisoner of Azkaban”. Nothing against the following and preceeding directors but what Cuaron did with the material was incomparable and I’d wish him to stay and direct all the HP films. Can’t wait for “Gravity”.

    I love television and I think that there are terrific writers working there, but this is what frustrates me about it.  Television directors are interchangeable.  Nothing looks like Drive or The Tree of Life or Moulin Rouge!  Great list.

    Spielberg: A.I, Minority Report (2 masterpieces).

    See, THIS is how you know someone’s a great director. When he gets nominated 5 times for some of the best films on their years (and sometimes of their decades and of all time) and people still go “Wait… where the hell is his nom for [insert title of great movie]”.

    It’s just like Scorsese not getting in for Taxi Driver and Woody Allen and Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson not getting many more BD nods which they deserved. They got nominated for their best work… but they deserved more…

    *rubs hands*
    Ok, who’s going to start complaining about all the Hitchcock snubs, heim?

    Spielberg: A.I, Minority Report (2 masterpieces).

    I agree very much about A.I, one of the most relentlessly depressing films I’ve seen. But, it’s beautiful in many ways. Visionary. I’ve always believed that one day. this film will be looked back upon and seen as the masterpiece that it is, honoring two directors at the very least.

    Minority Report is really popular around here and seems to be loved by some ‘key’ posters. The book is better. There’s your genius btw. The author. Same thing with Brian Aldiss.

    AI had a great first act. The rest of it was a mess. Minority Report might be Speilberg’s best movie.

    Maybe in your mind. But I always want to strangle Samantha Morton. She almost single-handedly tainted that film for me. Maybe for life.

    It’s so much easier adapting a book written by a literary genius and humanitarian, n’est ce pas?

    Christopher Nolan
    James Cameron (yes, because there can be no other word for the Oscars screwing over Avatar than S-N-U-B).
