Sight & Sound Greatest Films Poll 2012

Sep 07, 2012

Once a decade Sight & Sound asks critics to select the Greatest Films of All Time. "We’re proud that, thanks to its longevity and critical reach, this poll has come to be regarded as the most trusted guide there is to the canon of cinema greats, not to mention a barometer of changing critical tastes. Famously, Citizen Kane topped our poll every decade from 1962 to 2002…"

"For our 2012 edition, riding on the back of an increasingly globalised movie culture, we made a concerted push to take the poll truly worldwide – extending invitations to over 1,000 critics, programmers, academics, distributors, writers and other cinephiles, and receiving 846 top-ten lists from correspondents in 73 countries, citing 2,045 different films."

We were very proud to discover that it features four Mr Bongo titles:

# 21 - L'Avventura by Antonioni
# 144 - Memories Of Underdevelopment by Alea
# 154 - Falstaff: Chimes At Midnight by Welles
# 171 - Earth by Dovzhenko
