I get the feeling some of the entries lower down on my list would possibly place higher if I liked them a bit more.

I haven't seen The Man Who Wasn't There and although I've seen Raising Arizona and The Hudsucker Proxy I don't really remember enough of them to judge them fairly.

Admittedly I'm not a huge fan of True Grit, although I still liked it, but I never thought I'd hear such bad words against O Brother.

Probably

1 Fargo
2 A Serious Man
3 No Country for Old Men
4 Millers Crossing
5 Raising Arizona

Theres still a few I haven't seen, but unfortunatly The Ladykillers and Intolerable Cruelty are not in that list.

True Grit is a good film, but I couldn't fully get behind the massive amounts of love it received. The Lady Killers was sunk by that twat Marlon Wayans and Burn After Reading was irritating.

The rest of their stuff is pretty good and I could happily watch any of them. Yes, I even like Intolerable Cruelty.
