Just came across this at the avclub website. Love both films, but just not quite on-board with Vertigo overtaking Citizen Kane...
Posted: 2 years ago at Aug 3 9:11
Haven't seen enough of these - I need to sort myself out!
Posted: 2 years ago at Aug 3 9:41
Yeah, I'm currently sitting at a meager 22 watched.
Posted: 2 years ago at Aug 4 16:50
The forty or so of these I've seen all happen to be films I greatly admire, but why so few comedies? Did anyone have the gumption to vote for Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, or There's Something About Mary?

/One nice thing about this list: I know what to put on my Netflix Q this month
//Late Godard at number 50, eh? Hmmm.
Posted: 2 years ago at Aug 21 18:19
I love Kar Wai Wong's work, it's probably the most beautiful film of the 2000's that I've watched, but isn't In The Mood for Love a bit too high?
Actually I didn't even know it was so well received, that's a good thing anyway.

I also adore to see La Jetée pretty high on the list, it deserves that love. It's such an underrated film.

I've seen about 100 of these... Definitely need to see more tho. And to previous comments about films excluded: this list is based on director's choices for their personal top ten favorite films of all time. The list is compiled by how many times these films were voted for on those lists. Where I would agree that films such as "Pulp Fiction" wuld quite possibly make it into my personal top 250, it would be a far ways away from my top ten. As it obviously is with the film makers that were involved in the polling. (Tarantino being one of them).
