So, does this supersede my original list? Well, lists are always organic – they grow and evolve over time. I’ve fiddled with some of the categories and new films have come out and I’ve seen more films from some directors. So, my original list was what it was in October of 2009. This is where I am now, two years later, and one year overdue. The list will continue to evolve over time. The list never quite stops. But here’s where I put it up.
I will remind people again that if you don’t see a director and you’re wondering why, please check the Introduction first. It became clear on the original list that people didn’t read that instruction. Please don’t repeat that. And don’t ask about Godard. See the Intro.
Also, we’ll again find out who reads this part, the film in parenthesis is not necessarily their best film (hell, with Mankiewicz, it’s his worst). But it is the film I chose to write about, for whatever reason. (more…)
