The 15 Greatest Films of All Time According to 358 Directors

I checked around and this seems pretty legit except I couldn't find reference to who exactly the 358 film-makers are. Still, I snagged it from LIFEHACKLANE who snagged it from BFI Film Forever's, The International Film Magazine Sight&Sound who do a survey once a decade, this one in 2012
        I was pleased to note that I've already seen eight of the movies that I can actually remember, in blue, two I think I've seen but can't remember, in red, and five I know I haven't or at least strongly believe I haven't. So, the ones in black and red, except for the Bicycle Thieves because they don't have it, have all gone down on Netflix. Happy watching to us.

1. Tokyo Story – Yasujiro Ozu (1953)
2. 2001: A Space Odyssey – Stanley Kubrick (1968)
3. Citizen Kane – Orson Welles (1941)
4. 8 ½ – Federico Fellini (1963)
5. Taxi Driver – Martin Scorsese (1976)
6. Apocalypse Now – Francis Ford Coppola (1979)
7. The Godfather – Francis Ford Coppola (1972)
8. Vertigo – Alfred Hitchcock (1958)
9. The Mirror – Andrei Tarkovsky (1974)
10. Bicycle Thieves – Vittorio De Sica (1949)
11. Breathless Jean Luc Godard (1960)
12. Raging Bull - Martin Scorsese (1980)
13. Persona - Ingmar Bergman (1966)
14. The 400 Blows - François Truffaut (1959)
15. Andrei Rublev - Andrei Tarkovsky (1966)

What about you guys? Seen them all? Or none? Any you particularly adore? Or hate? And if you could add one more movie to the list, which would you add? I'd add 12 Angry Men (1957). Or maybe Dr. Strangelove Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964). And then there's always The Deer Hunter (1978).
