They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? (TSPDT) is a modest but growing film resource dedicated to the art of motion picture filmmaking and most specifically to that one particular individual calling the shots from behind the camera - the film director. Amongst other content, TSPDT currently houses two of the most referenced film lists on the internet (The 1,000 Greatest Films and The 21st Century's Most Acclaimed Films) along with a growing set of director profiles. I like to view TSPDT primarily as a cinematic 'traffic cop'. In other words, TSPDT will guide you in the direction of each director's best work (both from TSPDT's perspective - e.g. the film guides on each director page - and also from a critical-acclaim perspective), helping you to avoid as many celluloid crashes as possible.
