    1. “Get Out” – Director: Jordan Peele (37 votes)

    2. “Twin Peaks: The Return” – Creators: Mark Frost David Lynch (31 votes)

    3. “Call My By Your Name” – Director: Luca Guadagnino (30 votes)

    4. “Zama” – Director: Lucrecia Martel (27 votes)

    5. “Western” – Director: Valeska Grisebach (25 votes)

    6. “Faces Places” – Director: Agnès Varda1 (17 votes)

    7. “Good Time” – Director: Josh and Benny Safdie (16 votes)

    8. “Loveless” – Director: Andriy Zvyagintsov (15 votes)

    9 (tie). “The Florida Project” – Director: Sean Baker (14 votes)
    9 (tie). “Dunkirk” – Director: Christopher Nolan (14 votes)

    11. “A Ghost Story” – Director: David Lowery (13 votes)

    12 (tie). “120 BPM” – Director: Robin Campillo (12 votes)
    12 (tie). “Your Were Never Really Here” – Director: Lynne Ramsay (12 votes)
    12 (tie). “Lady MacBeth” – Director: William Oldroyd (12 votes)

    15. “God’s Own Country” – Director: Francis Lee (11 votes)

    16 (tie). “The Shape of Water” – Director: Guillermo del Toro (10 votes)
    16 (tie). “Personal Shopper” – Director: Olivier Assayas (10 votes)
    16 (tie). “Strong Island” – Director: Yance Ford (10 votes)

    19 (tie). “Mudbound” – Director: Dee Rees (9 votes)
    19 (tie). “Lady Bird” – Director: Greta Gerwig (9 votes)
    19 (tie). “Mother!” – Director: Darren Aronofsky (9 votes)
    19 (tie). “Moonlight” – Director: Barry Jenkins (9 votes)
    19 (tie). “I Am Not Your Negro” – Director: Raoul Peck (9 votes)
    19 (tie). “Let the Sunshine In” – Director: Claire Denis (9 votes)

    25 (tie). “The Other Side of Hope: – Director: Aki Kaurismäki (8 votes)
    25 (tie). “Silence” – Director: Martin Scorsese (8 votes)

    “Moonlight” and “Personal Shopper” made the list last year at #2, and #11 respectively so I’m assuming those who voted for it didn’t have it released in their country last year. That may also be the reason why we see “I Am Not Your Negro” and “Silence” appear on this list.

    How do you guys feel about their picks?

    The winner is going to look really bad in 12 months, let alone 12 years.

    Get Out is a surprising winner from this publication – I would’ve expected something with a more European sensibility like Call Me by Your Name to top the list – but Get Out might have benefited from the most exposure, as it’s been released pretty much everywhere as far as I can tell, and this is an international poll.

    Even highbrow people are ranking Get Out extremely high.

    Get Out is a masterpiece that will be quoted, studied, debated, and enjoyed for all time. It is truly the definition of an instant classic, and I love that it is getting the recognition it so clearly deserves.

    On an unrelated note, how the heck did the failed Oscar bait Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk make Cahiers du Cinema’s Top 10 Best?

    That list is offensive.
