I agree with DethMaiden on all the pics. The Coens are my all time favorites. Big Lebowski is tied for best movie of all time (Bronx Tale), is the most quotable movie of all time, and is by far the best comedy of all time. They transcend a lot of noir-ish styles. From Raising AZ to A Serious Man and almost everything in between, I'm 100%on board.
Also wanna throw in Spike Lee on the strength of Summer of Sam, 25th Hour, and Bamboozled.
