Paul Thomas Anderson ranked

My admiration for this man grows with each new release. He is inexorably building a filmography that will eventually mark him as one of the very great directors
A modern American master! After number one TWBB the next five are completely interchangeable...I will also add that I feel like Phantom Thread (one screening) and Inherent Vice (two screenings) will grow in my estimation after a few more viewings.
ADDENDUM: I just got back from seeing Licorice Pizza and it completely blew me away!! My immediate response was 5 stars easy. I gathered my thoughts and seriously considered putting it in second place on my list but is that right yet, really? I can't tell.....it may eventually settle into number three…
