2012 Sight and Sound, Greatest Films of All Time

What is the greatest movie of all-time? For 40 years, Orson Welles' Citizen Kane has been the consistent answer, for both critics and directors. That movie has now been pushed aside to number 2 by both of these groups in the Sight and Sound's 2012 Best Movie Poll. The British Film Institute has completed this survey every 10 years since 1952, and it might be the definitive poll on the greatest movies. The new winners? The critics picked Hitchcock's Vertigo, and the director's picked Yazujiro Ozu's Tokyo Story.

To see what other films were selected, some as recent as from 2011, check out:
