10 Greatest Movies of All Time, as Picked by Geeks

Once a decade, Sight & Sound asks film critics to select a list of
10 greatest movies of all time. These wonks came
up with a list of 10 films
that I bet most of you haven’t seen before.
The earliest one dated from 1927 (Sunrise: A Song for Two Humans
by F.W. Murnau) and latest one made is all the way from 1968 (2001:
A Space Odyssey
by Stanley Kubric).

So, our pal Stefan Blitz from Forces
of Geek
asked the same question to his colleagues, and came up with
a very different list. Compare the two:
