I'm a bit surprised that George Miller made the list and not Ralph Bakshi because I once read in a written interview that Spike Lee really appreciated Bakshi's earlier work.

It seems as if every serious filmmaker admires Akira Kurosawa stuff.

Charles Burnett's masterpiece KILLER OF SHEEP is on the list.

It's a masterpiece.  The cinematic equivalent of Ralph Ellison's INVISIBLE MAN.
