Default Where would you place Mask of the Phantasm against TDK trilogy?

I rewatched Batman: Mask of the Phantasm a week or so back. Reading the movie's Wikipedia entry afterwards, I saw the section 'Critical response' ends with...

"In 2010, IGN stated it [MotP] was "the Dark Knight's best big screen story" until Batman Begins (2005). Wired's Scott Thill called Kevin Conroy "the finest Batman on record" in 2009. In October 2012, WhatCulture also praised the film, saying it was at the same level as Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy, if not slightly higher. In 2016, the popular Internet reviewer Nostalgia Critic reviewed the film and called it the best ever cinematic representation of Batman, as well as it being completely underrated and deserving of a Blu-Ray release."

I thought about how I'd rate Mask of the Phantasm against each of the Nolan films and decided

1. The Dark Knight - 10/10
2. Batman Begins/Mask of the Phantasm - both 9/10
3. The Dark Knight Rises - 8.5/10

How would you rate it in comparison?

Do you think - as WhatCulture did - that it could even rate slightly higher than TDK trilogy as a whole?
