All my favorite films, (roughly) ranked

Every film that I would currently consider as part of my favorites in rough order. An attempt to thoroughly rank what has been an indefinite cluster of films I really like. Changes frequently due to indecisiveness/privately rewatching some where placement is sketchy.

A mix of both objective quality of film and personal enjoyment of film/rewatchability/memorability/any other arbitrary reason, hence inconsistencies in star ratings.

Honorable mentions:

Shows:
Fargo
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Serial Experiments Lain
Space Ghost: Coast to Coast
Twin Peaks (S1 to The Return)

Shorts:
The Alphabet
Emotion (1966)
Pas de Deux
Swing You Sinners!

Formerly on the list (might make it back, but who knows):
3 Women (1977)
Akira (1988)
Altered States (1980)
American Pop (1980)
Animal House (1978)…
