One thing I've learned from obsessing over Sight & Sound's Greatest Film Poll, and reading individual critics' and directors' Top Tens, is that I prefer the Top Tens that are more explicitly personal and quirky, more an expression of what that person might bring to their desert island, and not what they think are the actual greatest films of all time.
I mean, it's just an opinion, and essentially meaningless, so it might as well be revealing.
With that in mind, I'd like to revise my ballot (unasked for, uncounted) for the poll. Here are the ten films I pick today. They're coming with me to my desert island so they might as well be on my list.
