Some of these did appear on other lists, but these would be what I would consider "wasted votes" in the grand scheme of things...

1. Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (2007)
2. The Constant Gardener (2005)
3. Awakenings (1990)
4. Missing (1982)
5. 3:10 to Yuma (2007)

I believe Quiz Show and Finding Neverland popped up on at least one or two, but those would be in consideration.

Woman in the Dunes at #1 on my list.  Its my precious, nobody knows about it, nobody needs to know.
I’ve lied to men who wear belts. I’ve lied to men who wear suspenders. But I’d never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

I find this one more interesting as I've seen all the consensus picks. These are the ones I'm more likely to go and seek out, if only for the "what on earth do they see in this?" factor...  :)

I know, I keep letting this film down but it is just not quite in that top-tier for me. Definite top 200 pick.
