    Stanley Kubrick is the top dog on my shelves with eleven of his movies in my collection. The only Kubrick film I don't have on dvd is Killer's Kiss which I've seen but am in no hurry to get. The master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, comes in second with ten. That will change as soon as I get around to picking up Frenzy and Shadow of a Doubt. I have eight Werner Herzog titles and will be getting My Best Fiend soon. Kurosawa chimes in with six, the addition of Rashomon later this month will up that. Is the dvd of Dersu Uzala worth picking up? I've heard the transfer isn't very good, but I love the movie. Those are my top four...

    Ah, another Herzog fan! I am not alone...

    Hey Brook, I haven't seen My Best Fiend; is it worth picking up sight-unseen? And don't you wish Anchor Bay would release Where the Green Ants Dream? Can't wait for that one!

    Martin Scorsese, but not nearly as many as their should be, since they have not released many of his movies with an anamorphic transfer (Goodfellas, Raging Bull) or not at all (After Hours, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, King of Comedy). I know some of these are in the works (finally).

    I think I've got something like 17 Hitchcock films, so he's surely leading the pack.

    Second is surely Oliver Stone because I've got all his dvds apart from Salvador.

    Steve, I think it's definitely worth having, but I taped it off of IFC, and didn't think the upgrade would be worth it.

    Some of the stories are already told in the commentaries on Aguirre and Fitzcarraldo, but there are more including cool footage of Kinski ranting as part of a spoken word performance. Plus it includes a deleted scene from Fitzcarraldo.

    I need to go back and get Lessons in Darkness one of these days. I've never seen Where The Green Ants Dream, but would like to. I'd also really like to see a disc of his short documentaries, like How Much Wood Could A Woodchuck Chuck?, The Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner, and God's Angry Man.
