10 Greatest Movies of All Time, as Picked by Geeks

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
