Vertigo: The best film ever?

So Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo has been voted the Greatest Film of All Time in Sight & Sound magazine's prestigious once a-decade poll of international film critics, academics and writers.

I had a chat with editor Nick James about the film and why it has bumped Citizen Kane off top spot after all these years.

Here's the Top 10:

  1. Vertigo - 1958, director Alfred Hitchcock
  2. Citizen Kane - 1941, director Orson Wells
  3. Tokyo Story - 1953, director Yasujiro Ozu
  4. La Regle Du Jeu (The Rules of the Game) - 1939, director Jean Renoir
  5. Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans - 1927, director Murnau
  6. 2001: A Space Odyssey - 1968, director Stanley Kubrick
  7. The Searchers - 1956, director John Ford
  8. Man with a Movie Camera - 1929, director Dziga Vertou
