The Ten Best Films of All Time

By Paul Schrader

I’ve participated in the Sight and Sound ten best list since my critic days in the early 70’s. Every decade the list mutates (and dilutes as the list of respondents grows longer). I was part of the clique pushing for Vertigo and Searchers but again I reassess. BFI neglected to invite me this year but I nonetheless volunteer my update ten best of films of all time list. I selected an arbitrary cut off at the year 2000, otherwise I might have added In the Mood for Love.

  1. Tokyo Story
  2. Pickpocket
  3. Rules of the Game
  4. Citizen Kane
  5. The Conformist
  6. Vertigo
  7. The Lady Eve
  8. The Wild Bunch
  9. Sunrise
  10. 2001
