  1. For the record, mine isn't ranked. Officially it's "stream of consciousness" order. Also, my stream of consciousness really should have landed on ZODIAC, GERRY, and MCCABE & MRS. MILLER.

  2. I'll even come out and say the three I'd remove would be The Dark Knight, Alexander Nevsky, and Onibaba.

  3. Urgh... okay, I'd put ONIBABA back in and take out WEST SIDE STORY. So painful. WSS and NEVSKY were mainly in there on the strength of their music.

    (I was quite busy the week I was putting my ballot together and didn't really have much time to think.)
