Hitchcock's Vertigo ranked no 1 in list of 10 greatest films

Mumbai: Alfred Hitchcock has finally upstaged Orson Welles. Hitchcock?s Vertigo has taken the top spot in the 10 greatest-movies-ever list compiled by Sight and Sound ending the 50-year-long run of Welles? Citizen Kane.

Citizen Kane slid to the second spot, making way for Hitchcock?s 1958 psychological drama starring James Stewart and Kim Novak.

Yasujiro Ozu?s Tokyo Story has been ranked third followed by Jean Renoir?s Rules of the Game, F.W. Murnau?s Sunrise, Stanley Kubrick?s 2001: A Space Odyssey and John Ford?s The Searchers. Carl Dreyer?s The Passion of Joan of Arc ranks ninth followed by Federico Fellini?s 8 1/2.

The list also includes a new addition: Dziga Vertov?s documentary Man With a Movie Camera that comes in at eighth place.

Interestingly, Satyajit Ray?s 1955 classic Pather Panchali has been featured in the 50 greatest films of all time list. The film was made on a shoestring budget of Rs 150,000 and featured mostly amateur actors but it is Ray?s most famous film.

With 31 votes, the Ray film came at the 42 place in the Sight & Sound poll.

Some 846 critics, programmers, academics and distributors voted the best 50 films from the world cinema in the poll, which takes place once in a decade.

The magazine, published by the British Film Institute, surveys international film critics every decade.
