Changes daily since they're all so deeply personal and important to me for many reasons:

1. Boogie Nights
2. The Master
3. Magnolia
4. There Will Be Blood
5. Punch Drunk Love
6. Phantom Thread
7. Inherent Vice
8. Hard Eight

1 and 2 usually interchangeable. Same for 3 and 4. I feel Blood is the greater achievement all around but the audacity and emotion of Magnolia hits me harder. Rest seem right

I've been there from the beginning. Am the same age as PTA, and so I think that's reflected in my rankings and how these films have affected me over the years.

I cannot judge quality or importance to film history, so I'll just rank them in favorite/what they mean to me....

PART OF MY INNER FIBER
1. Magnolia
2. Boogie Nights
----------
ALL UTTERLY MAGNIFICENT AND FULL OF WONDERS
3. Phantom Thread
4. Punch Drunk Love
5. The Master
----------
LESS REWARDING OR VITAL FOR ME; BETTER THAN 99% OF OTHER FILMS
6. There Will Be Blood
7. Hard Eight
8. Inherent Vice

Magnolia is and will always be my favorite film, the most important piece of work to me personally in any medium, because of the time it came along in my life and the impact it had on me creatively and just like as a person. And it still majorly holds up. So it's weird to not put it at the top. But I'm basing this list on a gut-instinct What are the best Paul Thomas Anderson movies? The top 5 are all straight up masterpieces, which means they move around in my rankings a lot, but here's where they stand today.

The Master
There Will Be Blood
Phantom Thread
Magnolia
Boogie Nights
Punch Drunk Love
Sydney
Inherent Vice
