Top 10 Dictator Movies

3 of 11

9. BANANAS

This is what we mean when we say, “They don’t make ‘em like they used to.” Woody Allen’s hallmark of sheer irreverence introduces us to Fielding Mellish, a nebbish New Yorker (one of the first of many by Mr. Allen) who ends up becoming the leader of an unstable South American country to impress a girl (the lovely Louise Lasser, of REQUIEM FOR A DREAM and HAPPINESS fame). The film, which was mostly improvised, still stands the test of time as a truly hilarious romp, ranking as number 69 on AFI’s list of 100 Years, 100 Laughs.
