    The greatest films of all time

    Apparently every 10 years the British Film Institute announces a list of the 10 best films of all time. Here's the current list (well two lists). Anyone seen any of them?

    Critics’ Top 10 Films of All Time
    1. Vertigo
    2. Citizen Kane
    3. Tokyo Story
    4. La Règle du jeu
    5. Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans
    6. 2001: A Space Odyssey
    7. The Searchers
    8. Man with a Movie Camera
    9. The Passion of Joan of Arc
    10. 8 ½

    Directors’ Top 10 Films of All Time
    1. Tokyo Story
    t2. 2001: A Space Odyssey
    t2. Citizen Kane
    4. 8 ½
    5. Taxi Driver
    6. Apocalypse Now
    t7. The Godfather
    t7. Vertigo
    9. Mirror
    10. Bicycle Thieves

    I've heard of some of them but I haven't actually seen any. Though I guess if I'm looking for something to watch I now know to choose.

    BTW this is also the first time Citizen Kane hasn't won since 1962.

    Only seen a handful of them.

    The rest seem sort of 'hipsterish'.

    I'm surprised that Vertigo was the movie to break the streak. Granted I'm probably not going to appreciate the same things that people who make their living through movies would appreciate, but I didn't think Vertigo was any better than "good." I might have to rewatch it. I won't, though.

    All the other films I've seen on that list are pretty kickass though. Apocalypse Now is probably my favorite for having avoided the typical novel-to-movie-adaptation trap and for how the movie gradually becomes more unsettled and removed from reality without ever drawing a clear line between what's sane and what's insane until the end of the movie. It's also amazing that they were even able to complete the film with all the disastrous, ridiculous shit that happened during the shoot. If you watch the movie and you're at all interested what it took to finish it, there's a documentary called Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse that goes into everything in detail.

    These movies will never appear on that list, but I've probably watched Clerks, Donnie Darko, and Sunshine more than any other. Dogma would probably qualify too if I didn't discount the heavily edited version that used to show on Comedy Central on Wednesday afternoons. I should probably count the Lion King too, but it's my list and I'm not going to. Yeah.
    Look at all the fun we're having.

    Greatest films is really subjective. Just like the greatest music and greatest anything.

    I honestly wouldn't count any of those among my favorite films. I don't consider many of them to be -that- good.

    "2001: A Space Odyssey" is excellent. I haven't seen it in a while, though.
