Hello !
So there was an update to the "show by votes" or "show by ratings" option of a person's filmography.
We have some cool options now, like "only show feature films", that's cool.

BUT
All of that person filmography is merged in one ultra-messy list, it's litteraly a list of all the films where the person was credited, whether it was as a director, focus puller, extra or whatever.

That's just a mess guys.
When I want to see the most voted titles by Kurosawa, I don't want to see A Fistful of Dollars at number 2 and freaking Ghost Dog at number 4 !

So you should add a "job" filter, so that I can look at "the most voted titles directed by Kurosawa"

The most awesome thing you could do would be to add the "Watchlist Refiner" (which is great) to all those kinde of filmography rankings.

And if we go even further, maybe one day we could sort movies like
"Highest ranked US fantasy movies directed by Tim Burton and featuring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter released between 2002 and 2012 with more than 200000 votes"

Thanks for taking that into consideration guys !

Tom: You are not the only one who feels this way. In another thread I have been compiling a list of everyone who has expressed an opinion about this. https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/explore_more_by_ratings 

So far about 36 people have said they preferred the former version, and nobody has said that they prefer the new version.

Also in that thread, the method is explained how it is still possible to find the most voted (or highest rated) titles for a person within each job. Example: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000041/filmovote
