Jeffrey Wells had a fun way of wasting time the other day over at HE. The finest 3-4 consecutive "great" movie streaks from directors. I mean, in all honesty, the game is an absolutely empty exercise in comparing art, which is sacrilege to many, alas I gave in and it is absolutely impossible to find a director that had more than 5 "indisputably great" movies in a row, only Kubrick's done it, in my books at least. Coppola came close. So did Allen.
