How the directors and critics voted

Sidney Lumet

Top Ten

  1. The Best Years of Our Lives (Wyler)
  2. Fanny and Alexander (Bergman)
  3. The Godfather (Coppola)
  4. The Grapes of Wrath (Ford)
  5. Intolerance (Griffith)
  6. The Passion of Joan of Arc (Dreyer)
  7. Ran (Kurosawa)
  8. Roma (Fellini)
  9. Singin' in the Rain (Kelly, Donen)

Top ten is an impossible category. What I put down are ten movies that I can't resist watching, no matter when or where.
