Woody Allen ranked

Though I wouldn't number Allen among my very favourite filmmakers, there's a lot to his work that I completely adore. For the past couple of weeks I've been slowly working my way through his filmography, so thought I'd share my preference of the films of his that I've seen so far, especially since some of my picks tend to diverge from critical consensus. Your thoughts are appreciated.

[Notes: The placing of New York Stories refers just to my opinion of Allen's segment, "Oedipus Wrecks", not the film as a whole. I realise that Allen did not himself direct Play it Again, Sam, but it's too fantastic to not include.]
