Roger Ebert on Sight & Sound's List

Sight & Sound has published the 2012 version of its lists of the ten greatest movies of all time, which it revises every decade after polling directors and critics. In April Roger Ebert wrote about the list and listed his choices. The results are out and Ebert has “A few calm words” about what did and didn’t make the cut. (He prints the lists at the bottom of the piece.) I like this bit:

For years people have been telling me they just don’t see what’s so great about ‘Citizen Kane.’“ Now they tell me they just don’t see what’s so great about "Vertigo.” My answer will remain the same: “You’re insufficiently evolved as a moviegoer.” Or, more simply, “You’re wrong.”
