Time Out Names Sydney Pollack’s ‘Tootsie’ As The Best Film Of All Time

Time Out Names Sydney Pollack's 'Tootsie' As The Best Film Of All Time

It seems that the summer has inspired publications to take the long view of cinema history. Just last week, BBC Culture published their ranking of the 100 Greatest American Films. Now Time Out is doing them one better, going with their list of the 100 Best Movies Of All Time. And their top selection might surprise you.

Time Out’s survey didnt’t turn to critics, but to a select group of actors (whose individual lists you can see here) who provided their personal top tens, which in turn were used to calculated the top 100. So you won’t see Orson Welles‘ “Citizen Kane” or Alfred Hitchcock‘s “Vertigo” in this particular top ten. Instead, it’s a surprising selection, including Paul Thomas Anderson‘s “Boogie Nights,” Powell & Pressburger‘s “The Red Shoes,” Woody Allen‘s “Annie Hall,” and topping it all off, Sydney Pollack‘s “Tootsie.”

We know you’re going to have a lot to say about this, so check out the top ten below, see the full 100 right here, and hit the comments section.
