CriterionForum's List Project - 1930s (Version 3.0)

Every five years or so the film fans at Criterionforum.org spend half a year discussing the films of a certain decade - viewing and reviewing classics, championing favorites, and highlighting overlooked/underrated films. At the end of the discussion period they each submit lists of their fifty favorite films from the decade, and those lists are then compiled into a top 100, as well as a list of "also-rans" (the films which received more than one vote, but not enough to make the top 100) and "orphans" (those films only voted for by one
user.)

These are the results of the poll conducted in 2010-2011.
