Sight & Sound Greatest Films Poll 2012

manwithamoviecamera01

Invariably more interesting than its anonymously aggregated top 50 list is Sight & Sound’s complete poll, published earlier today, which focuses more on the subjective nature of the exercise, and individually correlates each balloted film to its voter(s). It’s also refreshing to witness the number and scope of participants broadened to include a younger and less well-known generation of voices, especially those not operating in an exclusively professional capacity. We would like here to draw attention to a selection of lists submitted by some friends and collaborators which may be familiar to Lumen readers, including Apichatpong WeerasethakulMay Adadol Ingawanij, Tag Gallagher, Miguel Marìas, Matthew Flanagan, and Edwin Mak.
