Top Ten: In Memoriam

As it’s Remembrance Sunday this weekend, I have been thinking about those who have passed away this year. One of those people was Roger Ebert, so today’s Top Ten is in his honour.

Every ten years, Sight & Sound conducts a poll to determine the greatest films of all time. In 1972, 1982, 1992 and 2002, he submitted his ten films that made it onto the list, along with his reasons for choosing them. His final list, submitted in 2012, was as follows (in alphabetical order):

1. Aguirre, Wrath of God (Herzog)
2. Apocalypse Now (Coppola)
3. Citizen Kane (Welles)
4. La Dolce Vita (Fellini)
5. The General (Keaton)
6. Raging Bull (Scorsese)
7. 2001: A Space Odyssey (Kubrick)
8. Tokyo Story (Ozu)
9. The Tree of Life (Malick)
10. Vertigo (Hitchcock)
