Ranking Ingmar Bergman’s films

I’ve just come across this ranking: https://hyperallergic.com/425499/48-ingmar-bergman-films-ranked/ 
I don’t agree, of course. So here’s mine: 
1. Persona (1966)
2. Cries and Whispers (1972) 
3. Fanny and Alexander (1982), the 5-hour version 
4. Wild Strawberries (1957)
5. The Seventh Seal (1957) 
6. Autumn Sonata (1978)
7. Winter Light (1963)
8. Summer with Monika (1953)
9. Smiles of a Summer Night (1955) 
10. Hour of the Wolf (1968) 
11. The Passion of Anna (1969) 
12. Through a Glass Darkly (1961) 
13. Summer Interlude (1951) 
14. The Virgin Spring (1960) 
15. The Magician (1958) 
16. All These Women (1964) 
Not ranking The Silence because I’ve forgotten it.
Note that that is a ranking from best to worst, among the films I’ve seen. 
This would be a ranking of favourites: 
1. Persona (1966)
2. Cries and Whispers (1972) 
3. Fanny and Alexander (1982), the 5-hour version 
4. Autumn Sonata (1978)
5. Wild Strawberries (1957)
6. Hour of the Wolf (1968) 
7. Summer with Monika (1953)
8. Smiles of a Summer Night (1955) 
9. The Seventh Seal (1957) 
10. Summer Interlude (1951) 
11. The Passion of Anna (1969) 
12. Through a Glass Darkly (1961) 
13. Winter Light (1963)
14. The Virgin Spring (1960) 
15. The Magician (1958) 
16. All These Women (1964)
