They Shoot Pictures, Don't They - The 1000 Greatest Films (December 2008 edition)

Add to my lists | Print this list

"Well, here we go again. We’ve spent another baffling year sifting (sometimes aimlessly) through film polls and best-of film ballots, collating them, weighting them and, hey presto, here are the goddamn results. Are we unclassifiable dorks of a rather specific nature, or are we highly valued film patrons providing a harmless little public service? The truth, we’d say, lies somewhere in between. The fact remains, however, that we enjoy chugging this out once a year, and the mostly nice words and feedback we get makes it all worthwhile. Anyway, we hope you enjoy the new list and the more time-reducing (for us, that is) compact presentation. As always, we would love to hear any feedback (good, bad, or otherwise) you have on this ongoing project.

"The December 2008 list of the 1,000 Greatest Films of all-time has primarily been compiled by using 1,825 individual critics’ and filmmakers’ best-films-of-all-time lists/ballots. That’s 221 more ballots than our December 2007 list. Angel Gonzalez Garcia has continued to provide us with many ballots, as have many others. A warm thank you to everyone that has contributed and/or lent their support towards the current version."
