29, as usual for this list. I think the average list size is around 125, median is probably a bit lower. Also reminder that for this list max points is 15, not 100 like for other lists (doesn't change anything other than scale).

If we'd do a poll of least like directors. These two would rank very high for me. Their keyfilm is a dislike for me. My average rating is 4.4/10. :yucky:

Duras and Straub & Huillet were among the directors I saw the most of last year, after meager previous exposure. I went from having a middling view, to fully respecting their body of work - sadly I still find their films too mixed overall to vote for either. S&H have the best shot as I may easily like their earlier work more on a rewatch, and I am yet to see their later work (overall they seemed to grow stronger and stronger).

Side note: More people on this forum need to expose themselves to Yoshida, one of the most unique and visually interesting directors of the new wave. Somehow he is repeatedly underseen (likely because most of his films sadly are unofficial checks on ICM)

Yay, results (l) There are already a few directors that appeared that I thought I've seen none of their works, but then I checked and I have seen at least one film from each of them.

Is the key film is determined by # of Official Lists, followed by # of Checks? I seem to recall that as your previous formula.

Just checking since Seconds is by far and away the single greatest achievement of John Frankenheimer's career. :folded:

Yeah, although some higher up the list are most official lists as of a couple of years ago, but this one is current. I was a bit surprised too.

I didn't like Amer when I first saw it, but I've loved everything else of theirs I've seen since.. I'm hoping to rewatch Amer soon though coz I think I'll like it more now.

I almost included Tykwer even though I've only seen two. 'Der Krieger und die Kaiserin' is exquisite and dazzling and the more famous 'Lola rennt' is very good as well. I think I said it last year but I should really approach some of his other films sometime!
That's all, folks!

Question for the Huillet & Straub supporters.

I am in the situation that I have seen 8 of their films, and I am entirely split.

I dislike/am not overly impressed by their early work up to '72:

Not Reconciled 5/10 (Straub only)
Chronik der Anna Magdalena Bach 6-6.5 (this one I actually want to rewatch)
Othon 6.5
Geschichtsunterricht 4

But love/strongly like everything I have seen from '79 and onwards:

Dalla nube alla resistenza 9
Trop tôt/Trop tard 7.5-8
Klassenverhältnisse 8.5
Sicilia! 8.5-9

My first question is if Moses and Aron, which they did in '75, immediately between my least favorite and favorite of their work (saw both last year), will fit in with the early or latter work.

And my second question is what films I should focus on exploring from them next.

What a shame Bava fell so much btw

@Gloede - unfortunately aside from shorts I have seen no film of theirs you haven't but from my understanding Moses and Aaron is relatively different from everyting else they did. A lot of these you (and I) haven't seen are adaptations of plays. I'm extremely excited for their Hölderlin adaptations actually. My personal favorites of theirs so far is Too early too late followed by Not Reconsiled. I find them relatively consistent personally.

Bit off topic, but his filmography on iCM needs an update. His recent movies aren’t in it somehow.

^Same for almost every director who's released something in the last 2 years, issue with tags it seems.

I would probably have Yoshida a lot higher if I made my list intuitively rather than mathematically, his films are always impressive even if I don't give them a high rating.
