Bananas is insanely high on this list, and Blue Jasmine insanely low. I will need to give some thought to how I would rank his movies, but I sense a wide divergence from this ranking.

I feel like Another Woman is only so high on your list because of how often we quote the line.  And the point of the quoting for me was also partly mocking the idiocy of it - itís kinda not good.

Glad to see Hannah and Her Sisters so high. Lovely film. I had the screenplay years ago and read it over and over for some reason. Know the lines by heart. Weird.
