    Default BFI's Sight & Sound Updates Greatest Films List!

    It's the time of the decade again!

    BFI’s Sight and Sound List Makes ‘Vertigo’ Number One – | Film.com

    The first choice is interesting, I mean, it hasn't changed in a while. And this list certainly has more foreign and lesser known films than AFI's list, which last updated in 2007.

    Thoughts?

    So judging by this list the golden age of movies was almost 100 years ago.

    Yeah, only 5 movies on the list since 1980. Only 2 since 2000.

    Ok, here are my thoughts, get ready for a digression!!

    No Luis Bu˝uel? Hitch called him the best director alive!! And we get Wilder's Some Like it Hot? Fun film, love it, but nowhere as his The Apartment! Or Sunset Boulevard!

    And yeah, this list seems too old, like ancient, no Allen? Seriously! But we did get a Lynch film! :O

    No Alien/Aliens?

    And no Schindler's List? Okay, that's just embarrassing.

    But anyways, let's get to the the first film, Vertigo beats what has been considered to be the eternal greatest film, Kane. I love Kane, but Vertigo, at least by my standards, is a religious experience. It's my favorite film ever!! :O

    I wouldn't mind The Birds on the list!

    Oh, yeah, Adgy, dunno if Ozu is better than Kurosawa, but The Tokyo Story makes me feel human. Yeah, top five. Ozu makes you feel human.

    And shame on you you haven't seen Sunrise: a Song for Two Humans!

    And I do think that 2001 is the best Kubrick film ever made.

    Silly of me, I thought this list was going to cause more controversy, I mean we are film fans, no?

    This list, in my opinion, is whacked. Too Eurocentric and old!

    It's not that I don't think Ozu is better, I really haven't seen enough of his films to judge, it's more just shock that he gets two before Kurosawa gets one. I mean, Seven Samurai isn't even my favorite of his movies, Ikiru is.

    I actually haven't seen a lot of these still, so it's hard for me to comment too much. I like Vertigo better than Citizen Kane, but I only saw Kane for the first time earlier this year. I liked it a lot, but it didn't hit me in any special way. I would like to give it repeat viewings because it seems like the kind of movie that would be better with them, but I don't really have time. I've got so much other **** to watch.

    I agree that 2001 is the best Kubrick film, even though it isn't my favorite.

    I was really happy to see In The Mood For Love on the list. Wasn't expecting it at all.
