Best Films of All Time – The Critics’ Picks (Updated)

This is my revised, updated list of the Best Films of All Time.  The original list can be found here.  I found 20 lists and compiled them into one big meta-list.  Here are the movies on five or more of the 20 lists, arranged in rank order by number of lists.  Movies on the same number of lists are arranged in chronological order.  I have used the English-language titles, in most cases, unless the movie is commonly referred to in the US by its non-English title.  For a chronological list of the movies on both the original and revised lists, go here.

8 thoughts on “Best Films of All Time – The Critics’ Picks (Updated)

  1. Sam Kapan

    I find these lists of yours extremely useful but have a methodological worry. A crucial question is the length of the lists you use to make your count. If a list has a thousand films on it (for example – and of course I’m exaggerating to clarify a point – would you include a movie listed 979th? So it would be useful, i think, to include in your prefatory remarks some idea of the nature of the lists you’ve used as your source.

      Thanks for your concern, Sam – I have thought about this issue quite a bit and I feel confident that using lists of different lengths (top 10, top 100, top 500, top 1001) doesn’t affect the quality or legitimacy of the meta-lists. As I plan to explain in an upcoming post (inspired by your comment), we’re measuring the lists against the total number of possible items in the group (works of literature, works of art, photographs, recordings, films, inventions, scientific discoveries, athletes), which is usually in the hundreds of thousands if not millions. From a mathematical perspective, then, a top 10 list and a top 1000 list are almost equal because each of them represents only a tiny percentage of the total items being rated (usually less than 1%). If a top 1000 list were rating items that totaled 1000 or slightly more than 1000, I could see being concerned about including the 979th item on the list. But the 979th movie out of the total 500,000 movies ever filmed (it’s a guess – the Internet couldn’t give me a consensus) is still in the top 0.2 percent of all movies. I don’t have a problem combining lists of different lengths as long as all the lists are culling the top 1-2% or less.

        Thanks so much for your swift and thoughtful reply.

        I’m writing an academic paper which tries to explain why Italian and German operas dominate the history of opera and the current international repertory. There’s no question they do. But I’m also curious to know which operas dominate critical judgments of artistic greatness. Judging from your meta-list, it’s once again Italian and German operas. I have no doubt it’s true. Nonetheless, it is possible that using very long lists can introduce distortion. Suppose an opera – perhaps one not so obscure but not very highly regarded – gets named over and over again at around (let’s say) 60th position. Let’s say it’s named sixteen times. It ends up high on the meta-list, tied with the Ring cycle (which I find hard to think of as one opera) and ahead of Die Meistersinger and Der Rosenkavalier, in part because (possibly) a number of lists naming only the 20 greatest operas didn’t include Meistersinger or Rosenkavalier, perhaps considering them to rank only 23rd and 25th. On the other hand, when I look at your meta-list I nod my head in agreement (though occasionally I’m baffled or even outraged by individual rankings) and think, “Yes, these are the operas the critics and historians most admire – and, curiously, the audience too.” (There aren’t many arts for which such agreement exists.) But academic papers require a finicky degree of clarity and precision – you’re always anticipating what will seem like trivial complaints.

        An aside: when I was a film critic in Boston in the 1980s and deeply interested in the history of movies, I tried to determine the number of feature films ever made. The best sources – not on-line then, of course, but books – indicated the number was about 1,100,000. I was startled but, as you probably know, a number of countries around the world make several hundred movies a year and have been doing so for decades – India, China,Japan, Egypt. Maybe the 500,000 figure is more reasonable, given that Hollywood can’t have made even 100,000, but I wonder.

        Again, thanks for your reply. I’m appreciative – and I thoroughly understand your passion for making lists. My friends think I’m similarly obsessed and it’s true I often make lists myself, including a series of movie lists – the ten I’d want on a tropic island, the ten I most want my children to love, the ten I’d want to see in the month before my death (Grand Illusion, Tokyo Story, Wild Strawberries, Vertigo, Singin’ in the Rain, The Earrings of Madame de…, L’Atalante – you get the idea), and so on. If you ever need one, just ask!

        Thanks for your comment – it’s good to know I’m not the only list-obsessed person out there. The opera paper sounds fascinating! As for the opera lists, I can assure you that none of the lists I used to make the meta-list was much longer than 100-150 operas, so you don’t have to worry about the 939th opera being compared with number 1. I agree that the “low on the list” problem exists, but it doesn’t bother me too much as long as we are talking about a category with thousands of items in it. I’m not sure how many operas there are, but even to be rated 60th on 16 “Best Operas” lists, I would think the opera would have to be excellent and better than the vast number of operas ever written (in other words, the statistical difference between the opera rated #1 and the opera rated #60 is quite small if the total number of operas is very large). The real problem, I guess, is that what a meta-list really does is determine “most listed”, not “best.” But as I say in my recent post, in most cases, there won’t be much difference. Your desert island lists intrigue me. Lately I’ve been avoiding the painful experience of whittling down my favorites to a Top 10 or Top 100. I tend to rate books, films and music on a 1-10 scale on various websites, so I’ve been making lists of my Top Rated books, films and music, without a limit on the number of items in the list. I find this method much less stressful and also realistic (no one is ever going to tell you you can only take 10 books with you to a desert island, for example, and of course they would have to include books on survival skills, edible wild plants, first aid and boatbuilding). But I was tempted by your opera projects to list my top 10 operas. Unfortunately, I haven’t listened to very many operas from start to finish (how do you find the time?), so my selection is quite limited. Nevertheless, here goes (in chronological order): L’Orfeo (Monteverdi, 1607), Dido and Aeneas (Purcell, 1683), Orfeo ed Euridice (Gluck, 1762), Le nozze di Figaro (Mozart, 1786), Tristan und Isolde (Wagner, 1865), Otello (Verdi, 1887), Elektra (Strauss, 1909), Der Rosenkavalier (Strauss, 1911), Wozzeck (Berg, 1925) and Peter Grimes (Britten, 1945). If I had to pick a favorite it would be the Mozart, although Monteverdi and Berg are close behind. A Top 10 movies list would be too painful, I think. All I know is that 8 1/2 would be in there, maybe at the top. Same thing with books. Moby Dick and 9 others.

      3. Sam Kapan

        We belong to more or less the same taste culture, though of course there are differences. When it comes to opera, my taste is ultra-conventional. I love Mozart, Verdi, and Wagner in equal measure and increasingly have come to love the work of Richard Strauss. We agree about Moby Dick and 8 1/2. .

        I would be pleased to send you a copy of the opera paper when it’s finished, probably in a month. And if you want any of my movie lists and if I can find them, I’d be happy to send those along too. I’ll add that my efforts long ago to transmit my love of movies to my children was only partially successful. My daughter resisted, but my son, writing under the name Joshua Clover, became a talented, erudite, and witty film critic despite his infatuation with Star Wars. .

        Perhaps you could help me with a bibliographical problem. How would you prefer I list your website? I’ve temporarily used James M. Becker with the short- form URL. I need a date (year of publication) too, but can’t figure out what it should be. Many thanks.

        Yours,
        Sam

        I’d love to see the paper. Where did you work as a film critic in Boston? I was a journalist here in the late 80s. As for the bibliography, this link shows the post where I introduced the opera lists back on February 20, 2014 (although there may have been revisions since then): https://beckchris.wordpress.com/2014/02/20/kill-da-wabbit-i…-the-opera-lists/

        BTW, my name is John M. Becker, not James, although I haven’t displayed it prominently anywhere on the site.

        As for my taste in classical music (including opera), I appreciate most everything I’ve heard, but I tend to favor the earlier and later periods – I love medieval motets, Renaissance masses and madrigals (Josquin, Palestrina, Lassus, Byrd, Gesualdo), Baroque fugues, cantatas, and operas, Bach (pretty much everything), Handel (operas, oratorios, concerti grossi), Haydn (symphonies, oratorios, string quartets), Mozart (operas, piano concertos, chamber music), Beethoven (symphonies, piano concertos, late string quartets, mid & late piano sonatas). Although I appreciate Berlioz, Chopin (ballades), Schubert, Schumann, Liszt (sonata in B minor), Brahms (symphonies, quintets, late piano works), Dvorak, etc., my interest really rises with R.Strauss, Schoenberg, Berg, Stravinsky and all those crazy 20th Century guys. As the music gets weirder and more modern (or, going in the other direction, more ancient), I find it more challenging, but more intriguing too. Still, the big problem I have with classical music generally and opera specifically is that I rarely have enough time to actually sit and listen to an entire piece of music. A movement maybe, or a scene. I wish I had to listen to music for my job, but the fact is, when I turn on Spotify, I am either too distracted to work or I don’t even hear it because I’m so consumed in my job. Plus, I’d probably listen to more classical if that was the only kind of music I listened to, but I also listen to almost all the other genres out there: jazz, rock, folk, country, hip hop, pop, world – so little time, so much to listen to. And then you need time to read books! I need longer days or a less time-consuming job.

      5. Sam Kapan

        Oh – my apologies! I realize my objection makes no sense. Any list that included my imaginary obscurity of an opera would also include, given its supposed length, the better known ones, so the inversion I feared would be most unlikely to happen.

  2. Sam Kapan

    Sorry for the delay in replying. Sorry too about getting your name wrong. I guarantee it won’t be mistaken in the paper. Thanks for letting me know.

    I did film criticism, mostly on a free-lance basis, from about 1975 to about 1985, for The Phoenix and The Real Paper, both now vanished, and, in the ’80s, for The News Hour on WGBH-TV. It was all moonlighting since I was also teaching sociology at BU. It was great fun. You never see anyone on the T reading your latest article in a sociology journal, but I often had the chance to study the facial expressions and body language of strangers reading one of my reviews. It was always fascinating – there is nothing like the egocentricity of a writer – even when the reader was clearly exasperated with my brilliance.

    My own classical music tastes pretty much run from Bach into the twentieth century. Again, I think of my taste as conventional and dull, but I am also a partisan, sometimes zealous, of Schubert, who I think belongs in the upper tier – Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms. A platoon occupies the second tier and includes Berlioz, Bartok, Mahler, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, R. Strauss (a great favorite) and many others. I suspect you’ll object to the absence of Handel and maybe I do too.

    I’m retired so I have more time to listen than you seem to, but since I continue to read and write in the usual way of a retired pedant, I mostly listen – really half listen – while doing other things. Music plays almost every alert moment except when I’m paying close and anxious attention to the political news, which these days is overflowing , But every now and then I stop and listen carefully – last week to Meistersinger, the week before to Traviata, fairly often to chamber music from Haydn (a great favorite) and Beethoven (ditto). Both of them can stop me in my tracks. There are movements in the Haydn quartets that at least temporarily incapacitate me, just the way a great aria can, and one of the great experiences of my life came when I was working in London one year (1986) and I heard the late Beethoven quartets on Southbank. (Alas, I’ve forgotten which famous quartet did the playing.) It was in a small auditorium in Queen Elizabeth Hall and I was just overwhelmed. So was everyone else. The quartet would end, there’d be silence, and then a tumult of cheering and applause and people hugging one another as if they needed help to avoid collapsing – we were, I suppose, bowled over. The next experience like that came when the Red Sox rallied in 2004 to beat the Yankees in the playoffs. So – I have already known heaven and therefore don’t mind that there isn’t one. .

    Cheers,
    Sam
