Dave Kehr's 10 Favorite Films, from sight & sound 2012 poll by Wesley Weaver

Here are the ten films that the great critic Dave Kehr selected as his ten favorites in the most recent Sight & Sound poll of 2012. Regarding his list, he writes, “All long-take, mise en scène movies, with the partial exception of Intolerance. Perhaps this is my knee-jerk reaction against the current mania for machine-gun editing.”

The Big Trail / Walsh
The Docks of New York / Sternberg
Intolerance / Griffith
Viaggio in Italia / Rossellini
Make Way for Tomorrow / McCarey
Contempt / Godard
Playtime / Tati
Sansho Dayu / Mizoguchi
The Searchers / Ford
Vertigo / Hitchcock
