Ten Movies I Like Better Than ‘Citizen Kane’ and ‘Vertigo’

Film buffs are all in a tizzy about Sight & Sound‘s most recent list of the greatest films ever made, which resulted in an upset: for the first time in 50 years, Citizen Kane is no longer considered the best movie ever made. Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo has taken the top honor this year. What does this mean? Well, not much, because who knows what will be number one next year. But here’s what I do know: while both Vertigo and Citizen Kane are pretty good movies, neither of them are films that I really want to watch again. Instead, here are my ten favorite movies. Why? Why not?

(Is this the whitest list ever? Possibly!)

1. Broadcast News

2. Rushmore

3. Harold & Maude

4. Wet Hot American Summer

5. 8 1/2

6. Marat/Sade

7. All About Eve

8. Days of Heaven

9. All That Jazz

10. Mulholland Dr.
