The British Film Institute has unveiled its every-10-year critics' list of the greatest movies of all time. And its secondary list of directors' choices.

Strangely, I wasn't invited to participate. So here goes, in chronological order:
The Magnificent Ambersons (1942)
Ladies of the Bois de Boulogne (1945)
The Big Sleep (1946)
Out of the Past (1947)
Late Spring (1949)
Europa '51 (1952)
Ugetsu (1953)
Madame de. . . (1953)
Ordet (1955)
The Wrong Man (1956)
Boy, movies sure peaked a long time ago, didn't they?
