Movie Snobs! What Are Your Favorite Films Since 1968?

The British Film Institute-published magazine Sight & Sound‘s once-a-decade international critics’ film poll since 1962 is out with a new top movie and a snub.

The new list has a new top film, Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo. It displaces Citizen Kane as the top film for the first film.

First conducted in 1952, the 10-yearly survey aims to rule out fluctuations in taste and asks participants to interpret “greatest” in any way they choose according to The Hollywood Reporter. No film is off limits.

So why are there no films made after 1968 on the list. No Star Wars, E.T., Harry Potter, 10, Grease, Saturday Night Fever, Rocky, Rain Man,  Jaws, Toy Story or Titanic!
