This list has been around sine 2005, but I had forgotten about it. Worth another look? Nothing since Eternal Sunshine in 2004? What screenplays from the past 7 years would you add? Several directors have very good taste and/or clout in aquiring the best scripts. Are there 4 Hitchcock films represented? And would Rear Window or North by Northwest have made the list if a lesser director had not brought them to life with the same flair?
