Sight and Sound’s Greatest Films of All Time - The 2022 Directors’ Poll

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Every decade for the last 70 years, the British Film Institute, through its magazine Sight and Sound, has polled critics and later directors, to rank the greatest films of all time. Join us as we discover, analyze, and discuss the 14 films that directors have ranked the best in the just-released 2022 poll. Study group members will watch the films before each session via a streaming service or on DVD. The films are (in the chronological order in which we plan to discuss them): Citizen Kane (Orson Welles, 1941), Tokyo Story (Yasujiro Ozu, 1953), Vertigo (Alfred Hitchcock, 1958), Breathless (Jean-Luc Godard, 1960), (Federico Fellini, 1963), Persona (Ingmar Bergman, 1966), 2001: A Space Odyssey (Stanley Kubrick, 1968), The Godfather (Francis Ford Coppola, 1972), Taxi Driver (Martin Scorsese, 1974), Mirror (Andrei Tarkovsky, 1975), Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (Chantal Akerman, 1975), Barry Lyndon (Stanley Kubrick, 1975), Close-Up (Abbas Kiarostami, 1989), and In The Mood for Love (Wong Kar-Wai, 2000). To enhance our discussions, we will post film reviews, articles, and discussion questions on Canvas.
