What my ballot would look like if I was asked to vote in the Sight & Sound poll *

10. There Will Be Blood (dir. Paul Thomas Anderson)
9. Annie Hall (dir. Woody Allen)
8. Mulholland Drive (dir. David Lynch)
7. Taxi Driver (dir. Martin Scorsese)
6. 8½ (dir. Federico Fellini)
5. The Good, The Bad and the Ugly (dir. Sergio Leone)
4. 2001: A Space Odyssey (dir. Stanley Kubrick)
3. Psycho (dir. Alfred Hitchcock)
2. The Godfather (dir. Francis Ford Coppola)
1. Casablanca (dir. Michael Curtiz)

Shortlisted: Memento, Fargo, The Godfather pt. II, Brazil, Raging Bull, Chinatown, The Thing, Pan's Labyrinth

* In that these would represent, to me, the essential film canon, rather than my ten personal favorites (and yes, I know there are significant blindspots)
