If Close-Up is a 2 seed, then Miller's Crossing is way way way underrated.

Not really. I love Miller's Crossing, but Close-Up is one of the GOAT.

I wouldn't know. But I would consider Miller's Crossing one of the best movies of the 90s, and it's in my Top 100, so it shouldn't be going up against a 2 seed yet is what I'm saying.

I do own it. Even if it was the best movie ever made, I'd stand by my statement that Miller's Crossing has been underrated in this exercise.

Miyazaki losing his match up is surprising.

A Moment of Innocence (1996) wouldn't be losing.
