    also no Barton Fink? (Would have replaced one of these two with that).

    I can see that. Barton Fink is great, that was actually #11 on my list.

    You need to watch Miller's Crossing, Dave.
    Spectacular movie.... you'll not be sorry.
    It might be #1, for me, it certainly is top five and the top five of this list are ridiculously good.

    This is going to be tough moving forward. I am not even sure who I think should win yet. I am fluctuating between at least 4 of them.

    Top 3 are O Brother, Raising A and Big Lebowski.  Fargo will be fourth.

    I can't imagine a different ending of these 4.

    O Brother and Raising will always be favorites of mine.  The yodeling in RA always cracks me up.  The whole of O Brother though wins every time for me.

    "Pete, it's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart."

    This might be the best my favorite quote, from a ridiculously quotable string of movies....

    "Uh Cousin Walsh, would it be the acme of foolishness to inquire if you had any hairnets?"

    My other favorite back and forth is when the show up to Walsh's house.

    Gunshot!!

    "Hold it right there!  You men from the bank?"

    "You Walsh's boy?"

    "Yessir!.  And he told me I'm to shoot anyone from the bank."

    "Well we ain't from the bank young feller"

    "Yessir, he also told me to shoot anyone serving papers"

    "We ain't got no papers neither"

    "I nicked the census man!"

    "Now there's a good boy."

    These are both great movies, right at the top.  Miller's is fantastic.

    There are a few I haven't seen so I'll need to hold my voting until they fall off, assuming they do.  Some real gems in here.

    Agree , honestly if the Big Lebowski does not take it , I would be shocked.

    I swear I watched that movie on VHS over 100 times in college.

    Burn After Reading is a criminally underrated movie.

    That is what makes these so interesting....Burn After Reading is next on my list, likely, although I liked it....and what you voted for is a contender for my favorite.  :lol:

    Yeah looks like it got good reviews. If it's on Netflix or Amazon Prime, I'll check it out.

    I haven't seen a few of the others in ages (Raising Arizona and Inside Llewyn Davis)

    Surprised Inside Llewyn Davis has a number of votes. Thought it was one of their best films.
