What Are the Best (and Worst) Woody Allen Movies?

This week in Slate , Juliet Lapidos shared what she learned by watching every single movie Woody Allen ever made including the stinkers. As a sidebar to the piece, Lapidos grouped Allen's films by quality , starting with the "Masterworks" (films we "should shoot ... into space,  as we did Beethoven's 5 th , so that copies survive if we blow ourselves up") and running down to the truly "Bad."

Do you agree with her categories? Here's your chance to weigh in. (Don't worry: You don't have to be an Allen "Completist" like Lapidos to participate.) From now until Tuesday, April 5 at 12:00 p.m. , cast your votes for the best and worst feature films Woody Allen ever wrote and directed. You can choose up to five in each category.
