How the directors and critics voted

Harold Becker

Top Ten

  1. L'avventura (Antonioni)
  2. Berlin Alexanderplatz (Fassbinder)
  3. Citizen Kane (Welles)
  4. A Clockwork Orange (Kubrick)
  5. 8 1/2 (Fellini)
  6. The Grapes of Wrath (Ford)
  7. In Cold Blood (Brooks)
  8. Lawrence of Arabia (Lean)
  9. Sunset Blvd. (Wilder)
  10. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (Huston)


The only way to limit myself to ten was to choose those films which had the greatest impact on me as a film-maker.
