Akash: The entry for Michael Spierig should say "... and Peter Spierig".

It kind of covers the same ground and overlaps both with an existing sibling poll and is a subset of an existing poll suggestion.There is an existing poll on greatest all-time behind the camera siblings already: http://www.imdb.com/poll/wVMfN7S0FU8/.  Plus, an existing poll suggestion targeting directing tandems that includes all these options and more: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/ps-best-movie-or-tv-director-tandems/

 The Coens Bros.http://www.imdb.com/poll/wVMfN7S0FU8/results got 50%+ of the vote and over triple their next closet competition against a tougher field of competitors. I can imagine even more of a rout here.

I was curious if Lana Wachowski and Lilly Wachowski, formerly known as The Wachowski Brothers of Matrix fame qualify for your list.

I had thought of adding them before. But I just felt it would be a little weird or offensive somehow. 

Let me know what you think.

I thought it could be a bit of sticky situation too, for some, My advice would be to use the facts, which are not disputable and be impartial. I don't think anyone could be offended by a statement of fact; if they are it is there problem and not yours.

The facts are as The Wachowski Brothers, Laurence Wachowski and Andrew Wachowski co-directed Bound, Speed Racer and the three movies of Matrix trilogy. At the time those films were made they were blood brothers. On those five films and their critical and commercial success alone, they deserve to be included. I don't think any one of those three statements of fact are disputable.

I wouldn't even consider using any other work beyond that to justify their inclusion, as it gets into a grey area and is not necessary.

Actually, you have created your list with 'Images' and I have created it with 'People'. 

So, either way I can't really add them.

Akash Charudatta Deshpande,

With 11 choices, this is not really a face-off poll. I've edited the title of this thread accordingly.

Please change the title of your list to:
Brothers — Directing Duos
