VERTIGO has no business being at the top of the list and I'm not just citing William Goldman (no movie with Kim Novak could be the greatest movie of all time) when I say that. Oddly enough, VERTIGO came in the mail today from netflix, because we haven't seen it in a couple of years, but the idea that it is anything remotely as innovative as KANE is hard for me to see.

Love that TARKOVSKY got STALKER on the list (almost makes up for Richard Brooks or Frankenheimer not having one of his real good ones on there), and that 2001 is still up high on it. Not enough political paranoia movies for my taste, though I ain't really holding my breath for TWILIGHT'S LAST GLEAMING or THE PARALLAX VIEW to leapfrog up anytime soon.
