Once a decade, Sight & Sound asks film critics to select a list of 10 greatest movies of all time. These wonks came up with a list of 10 films that I bet most of you haven't seen before. The earliest one dated from 1927 (Sunrise: A Song for Two Humans by F.W. Murnau) and latest one made is all the way from 1968 (2001: A Space Odyssey by Stanley Kubric).
So, our pal Stefan Blitz from Forces of Geek asked the same question to his colleagues, and came up with a very different list. Compare the two:
|Sight & Sound Critic's Poll 2012||Stefan Blitz, Forces of Geek|
|1. Vertigo (Alfred Hitchcock, 1958)||1. Jaws|
|2. Citizen Kane (Orson Welles, 1941)||2. Diner|
|3. Tokyo Story (Yasujiro Ozu, 1953)||3. Superman: The Movie|
|4. La Regle du jeu (Jean Renoir, 1939)||4. Raiders of the Lost Ark|
|5. Sunrise: A Song for Two Humans (F.W. Murnau, 1927)||5. The Godfather|
|6. 2001: A Space Odyssey (Stanley Kubrick, 1968)||6. Animal House|
|7. The Searcher (John Ford, 1956)||7. Flash Gordon|
|8. Man With a Movie Camera (Dziga Vertov, 1929)||8. The Empire Strikes Back|
|9. The Passion of Joan of Arc (Carl Theodor Dreyer, 1927)||9. North by Northwest|
|10. 8½ (Federico Fellini, 1963)||10. Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein|
