WAS,
re: "I did eliminate someone yesterday. Does that give me leave to add a name?"

After a name is brought up to ten or down to zero, the following player is supposed to add a new one. If Sloany had voted up Agnieszka Holland or down David Mamet, then it would have been your turn to add a new director's name.
Better luck next turn!

Those aren't listed in any special order there. It's not all gold in his career, but if you look at how many movies the guy's directed -- naturally, no director could have only made good ones staying that prolific!
