Watch: 'Citizen Kane,' 'Tokyo Story,' 'Pierrot Le Fou', 'Sunrise' & More From Sight & Sound's Top 50 Of All Time

Well, Sight & Sound drop their once-a-decade list of the Top 50 Greatest Movies Of All Time, and taking Orson Welles‘ long-standing position at the top of the heap with “Citizen Kane” was Alfred Hitchcock‘s “Vertigo.” Beyond the top ten are a lot movies that don’t get into the conversation with the rest of the greats at the top the list, but that doesn’t mean they are less deserving of attention. However, they may be less seen, which could be a contributing factor, but we here at The Playlist have got you covered.

While not everything on the Top 50 is easily found online, many of them are (through various shades of legality we reckon).

So below you’ll find: “Citizen Kane,” Yasujiro Ozu‘s “Tokyo Story” and “Late Spring,F.W. Murnau‘s “Sunrise,Dziga Vertov‘s “Man With A Movie Camera,” Carl Dreyer‘s “Passion Of Joan Of Arc,Sergei Eisenstein‘s “Battleship Potemkin,” Ingmar Bergman‘s “Persona,Akira Kurosawa’s “Seven Samurai” and “Rashomon,Andrei Tarkovsky‘s “Stalker,Buster Keaton‘s “The General,Fritz Lang‘s “Metropolis,” Chantal Akerman‘s “Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles,Jean-Luc Godard‘s “Pierrot Le Fou” and “Breathless,Abbas Kiarostami‘s “Close Up,” Charlie Chaplin‘s “City Lights,Chris Marker‘s “La Jetee” and more.
