BFI - The Top 50 Greatest Films of All Time



And the loser is – CITIZEN KANE. After 50 years at the top of the Sight & Sound poll, Orson Welles's debut film has been convincingly ousted by Alfred Hitchcock's 45th feature VERTIGO – and by a whopping 34 votes, compared with the mere five that separated them a decade ago. So what does it mean? Given that Kane actually clocked over three times as many votes this year as it did last time, it hasn't exactly been snubbed by the vastly larger number of voters taking part in this new poll, which has spread its net far wider than any of its six predecessors.
