What!? Another goddamn list from the @BBC? Of course I'm intrigued.

I love this kind of list-making because it precisely is a very educational study for cinephiles. It's about the movement of cinema, where is it going? what has aged like fine wine? what hasn't? It's always important to reassess the state of the game. Sight and Sound does it every 12 years with their Critics and Director's poll of the greatest movies ever made.

This was how my ballot looked like for the BBC poll. A non-definite ranking because, well, these kind of things change all the time. But that top 10 definitely has the movies that have redefined the language of cinema for me. Each and every one of them. The BBC's list can be found HERE
