1, 6, and 9 certainly belong there, but I'm not so sure of the others (although I haven't seen 7 or 8).


Off the top of my head, I would put Guy Ritchie's "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels" on there for sure. It's brilliant, a hell of a lot of fun, and has an intricately plotted but perfectly put together script, a fresh distinctive editing style, and a hip soundtrack. Apart from a student short film, it was his first at the helm and really set or raised the bar for British gangster films.

From the list above, only Orson Welles qualifies IMO.

Beat me to it, Lock Stock is a lot better than some on the list, a lot, lot better

Kane leaves all others so far behind, the list should be the "9 best films by first-time directors after yielding the undisputed top spot to 'Citizen Kane.'" But there are some very fine efforts on the list.

True, that.
