To make lists is an exciting and very silly task. So, it's necessary to write the list very fast, without thinking, like a sort of Russian roulette. If not, you would feel too ridiculous excluding Hitchcock, Welles, Ozu, Bergman, Coppola, Ford, Eustache, Monty Python, Barnet, Godard, Varda, Peckinpah, Jarmusch, Dreyer, Casavettes, Vigo, Rossellini, Wong, Berlanga, Pelechian and hundreds of others. Tomorrow the list would be absolutely different.
