  1. Kubrick? Hitchcock? Coen brothers? Speilberg? John Ford? Allen? Capra? Cappola? ……Really?!?

    And how can you name Jones one of the greatest directors of all time if he has only made one movie?

  2. Hey, don’t beat him too bad. This isn’t a bad list. Although I agree 1 movie isn’t enough to rank someone just yet. (Could’ve been a fluke film) But the rest of the list is pretty good for my flavor of “Modern Directors” (Although I think Quentin Tarantino is over rated, good, but over rated.) Oh, and Wong’s style is tight!
