This yr’s ballot was organized with 1,639 taking part critics, programmers, curators, archivists and teachers who every submit their high 10 poll.

The final ballot, that was declared in 2012, had Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo on the high.
Satyajit Ray’s Pather Panchali (1955), that types the primary a part of the acclaimed Apu Trilogy was positioned on the thirty fifth spot. It is the one Indian movie on the checklist. The journal declares, “Pather Panchali announced the arrival of a humanistic, Calcutta-centred Indian art cinema, distinct from the commercial product of Bollywood. Among the film’s intensely memorable moments is a scene in which Apu (Subir Banerjee) and his sister run through a paddy field to catch a glimpse of a passing train.”
