You must be a diabolical cenobite, Cilantron!
No wonder you're a fellow support "Pinhead" supporter ;-)

Oh, well, if you're here, you can add a different director if you want.

Although I haven't had a chance to vote him up, I by no means set up Mamet as a fall guy. Man, so odd to see him fall this fast.

I think all these are above-par movies directed by David Mamet: 'Homicide', 'Spartan', 'Things Change', 'House of Games', 'State and Main', 'Red Belt', 'Heist', 'The Spanish Prisoner', and 'The Winslow Boy'. I can honestly say all these movies mean more to me than anything Errol Morris or Spielberg have directed, and the first three titles are a damn sight better than Scorsese's best movies.

So in preparation of the inevitable: Shalom, Kol Tuv, David.

- Spielberg; much more for what he's become, than for the initial promise.
+ Otto Preminger enters the pantheon; Jean Seberg welcomes with a kiss on the cheek. Otto's monocle falls off in all the excitement. Gypsy Rose Lee strides over, knees him in the jewels and then plants a big wet one on his gleaming dome.

J. Baker says:
Thanks for asking about the alphabetizing, Cilantron. I would definitely prefer always using the last name to go by for alphabetical order.
Alphabetizing by first name only makes sense if you know the person by their first name better than by their last name. Can't think of anyone with two names that that applies to.
So Mamet should be after Brooks in the leaky basement.
