They Shoot Pictures, Don't They?

1,000 Greatest Films (2015 Edition)… Coming Soon

Hi All. The update of the 1,000 Greatest Films isn’t too far away. I can’t put an exact date on it, as I am nowhere near that organised. But, I can guarantee that it will arrive before the end of February. It will then be followed by the new 21st Century listing, which will be shaken up a little by some changes to the formulas - that are intended to give more recent films a better chance to place higher on the list. Thank you all for your ongoing patience and support. This quaint, slack-arse little site wouldn’t exist without it. - Bill

They Shot Dark Pictures, Didn't They?

171 redesigned director pages are now available, including many of cinema’s finest and most revered filmmakers. There is apparently a plan to gradually expand this to over 1,000 directors. Crazy, eh?
