A critics' survey puts Mullholland Drive at the top of the list of the best films since 2000. Did yours make the cut?
Movie critics love Linklater, Studio Ghibli
, the Coens and the surrealist stylings of David Lynch
. At least, that's if a newly-published list of the 100 greatest films of the 21st century is anything to go by.
BBC Culture commissioned the poll, which took in responses from 177 film critics from all over the world. As a result, the top 100 includes an eclectic mix of the mainstream to independent movies, from dramas to sci-fi and off-beat comedies. Feew would be surprised to see things like Paolo Sorrentino
's handsome Italian confection The Great Beauty
propping up the lower end of the list, or that such acclaimed directors as Wes Anderson
or the aforementioned Coens feature heavily.
What is pleasing to see, though, is how much good genre stuff has made the cut,
