    From the editor’s guild:
    https://www.editorsguild.com/Magazine.cfm?ArticleID=1102

    My ranking of the listed below:

    9. JFK (1991)
    8. The Godfather (1972)
    7. All That Jazz (1979)
    6. Jaws (1975) 
    5. Citizen Kane (1941)
    4. Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
    3. Apocalypse Now (1979)
    2. Bonnie and Clyde (1967)
    1. Raging Bull (1980)

    The # 10 slot…The French Connection

    Here’s what made the list and were pushed out of the Top 10, unfairly…Vertigo (1958) and Psycho (1960, George Tomasini), A Clockwork Orange (1971, Bill Butler), Pulp Fiction (1994, Sally Menke), Rashomon (1950, Akira Kurosawa) and High Noon (1952, Elmo Williams).

    I’d say 2001: A Space Odyssey. All the scenes between Poole in space and Bowman rentering the ship are perfectly edited.

    While Raging Bull definitely deserved its oscar that year, I think the editing is overall pretty overrated. The finale of Bonnie and Clyde as well as half the scenes in Whiplash had far superior editing.

    The French Connection has to be one of the best (if not THE best) edited film of all time. Extremely under-appreciated.
    Jerry Greenberg deserved his Oscar. .
     
     The chase sequence, the use of jump cuts, the brilliant use of other editing tricks which is inspired by the French New Wave.

    Doesn’t get better than that

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

    Not all time, but yes for all my time.
