Ranking List of Woody Allen's Movies (Not By Me)

I thought it was a fun idea, and I'm busy with my essay. So eat it up.

"Woody Allen has written and directed forty-one films in the last forty-five years, making him one of our most prolific auteurs. He's also run the gamut between great and awful more perhaps than any other director. With his latest, Midnight In Paris, out this Friday, I sized up the man's formidable body of work, listed here from worst to best."

5. ANNIE HALL
4. MANHATTAN
3. INTERIORS
2. HANNAH AND HER SISTERS
1. CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS

Hmmm,I'm deficient in this case, and I consider myself a Woody Allen fan, but I've only seen 11 of the movies listed:

1-What's Up Tiger Lilly?
2-Bananas
3-Sleeper
4-Love and Death
5-Take the Money and Run
6-Zelig
7-Hannah and Her Sisters
8-Crimes and Misdemeanors
9-Small Time Crooks
10-Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid to Ask)
11-The Purple Rose of Cairo

And of these the only one I have in my whole DVD library is Love and Death (one of my favorite films.) I keep waiting for his movies to show up in the bargain bins, but they never do.

Not a lot of Allen's more recent (as in last 25 years) stuff gets much play around here--I remember a friend of mine asking the proprietor of the (now defunct) local 'bargain' theater if they were going to show one of his mid-80s films, only to be told that "Woody Allen is the Kiss of Death in this town." Why am I not surprised? Branagh's Henry V didn't play here--neither did his Hamlet (but Mel Gibson's Hamlet DID. Morons.)

Hey you!
How's it going? Has academia finally claimed your scalp? We miss you...
It hasn't been the same without you at the Marx Brothers Council, you know.

By the way, have you heard that Woody Allen is going to star in his own movies. Great News!
