Sight and Sound 2012 poll results released
It's an event for cinephiles somewhat akin (or perhaps not) to the World Cup for soccer/football fans. In the British Film Institute magazine's survey of hundreds of critics and filmmakers conducted every ten years, Vertigo has unseated Citizen Kane from the long-held top spot. These poll-results could very well lead to a new round of obsessive (pun intended) number-crunching by the very dedicated, as they did for me the last time around. Or, one could just let others do all the number-crunching and save one the trouble.
