Roger Ebert on the “Ten Best Films of All Time”

Every decade, Sight and Sound polls critics and directors for their list.

Here’s what Ebert had to say before selecting his 2012 list.

Here’s what he has to say about how he ended up voting in 2012.

Here’s how he voted:

Aguirre, Wrath of God (Herzog)
Apocalypse Now (Coppola)
Citizen Kane (Welles)
La Dolce Vita (Fellini)
The General (Keaton)
Raging Bull (Scorsese)
2001: A Space Odyssey (Kubrick)
Tokyo Story (Ozu)
The Tree of Life (Malick)
Vertigo (Hitchcock)

Pretty good list, I would say, but I’ve never understood people’s preference for Vertigo among Hitchcock’s films.

One thought on “Roger Ebert on the “Ten Best Films of All Time”

  1. There are certainly 4 or 5 Hitch films worthy of sticking in that company, but I agree with Roger that Vertigo is his supreme achievement. I’m curious to know what you would substitute! Thanks for the links.
