According to 846 movie critics, these are 10 best movies ever made

Posted on September 6, 2013 

Whenever "the best movies ever made" list comes out, "Citizen Kane" is almost always No. 1.

This time, it's been bumped to No. 2.

The new No. 1? Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo."

This list was made from polling 846 movie critics.

Obviously, no one asked me. I would put "Gladiator" up there, but you know why.

Here's the list. I've seen some of them, but others I've never even heard of, much less seen. I guess that's why no one asked me for my Top 10 list.

1. Vertigo (Alfred Hitchcock, 1958) 2. Citizen Kane (Orson Welles, 1941) 3. Tokyo Story (Yasujirô Ozu, 1953) 4. La Règle du jeu (Jean Renoir, 1939) 5. Sunrise (F.W. Murnau, 1927) 6. 2001: A Space Odyssey (Stanley Kubrick, 1968) 7. The Searchers (John Ford, 1956) 8. Man with a Movie Camera (Dziga Vertov, 1929) 9. The Passion of Joan of Arc (Carl Theodor Dreyer, 1928) 10. 8½ (Federico Fellini, 1963)

So if you were asked which movies are in your Top 10, what would they be?
