Feel free to comment on what directors you think are missing.
The general rule of thumb is that I have to see around 4-5 films from a director (given that I like those films) before I add them.
Directors Recently Added:
All the movies are in order of preference not in order of how good they are, since that's really up to no one to decide how "good" a film truly is.
They are the movies that I have rated 10 - 8.5. I think it's a good mix of lesser known, obscure films and films that aren't too obscure.
Documentaries and Mini-series are included in here, there is an alternate list for short films, mainly because my rating system is a lot different for short films, I tend to be more liberal.
I'm thinking that I should limit this list to only 500 films. Any more and and "favourite film" may begin to lose its meaning, at the very least its impact would be dulled.
This list is usually updated daily.
Comments and recommendations are welcome.

I find it difficult to rank short films among features so I thought it would be easier to make separate lists for them.

“My filmmaking education consisted of finding out what filmmakers I liked were watching, then seeing those films."
