    Sight & Sound has just released its new list for 2012 of the top 10 greatest films of all time.

    It’s time for us to join in.

    Post your top 10 list bellow (no need for it to be in any particular order). One or two ties (at the most!) are allowed. For those who have too many films on their lists, try to shorten them to 20. But that is the absolute maximum, please. You can name other films you left off your list if you want, but the list has to be visible.

    Have fun!!!

    4. The Battleship Potemkin

    I thought about adding this one but the main thing I remember is ‘speeding it up’ while I was manning the reel at a university film fest. It truly is a classic.
