Top 10 movies of all time

What are the best movies of all time? Depends on who you ask, of course. In our case we make our own survey regarding on What Is The Best Movie Of All Time? We asked 10000 people around the world (including film producer, director and even artist).

To me, accuracy when making a Top 10/Top 100 all time list is extremely important. My lists are not based on my own personal favorites; they are based on the true greatness and/or success of the person, place or thing being ranked. In other words, a film’s commercial success (Oscars & BAFTA Awards), and greatness in direction, screenwriting and production, is how I ranked the films on this list.
