1. The Godfather (1972)
2. Casablanca (1943)
3. The Godfather Part II (1974)
4. Sunrise (1927/28)
5. Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
6. It Happened One Night (1934)
7. All About Eve (1950)
8. Annie Hall (1977)
9. On the Waterfront (1954)
10. All Quiet on the Western Front (1929/30)

Links go to my reviews. The rest of the OFCS list is at Online Film Critics Society. (You’ll see how current we can be: newly minted Best Pic 12 Years a Slave is on the list, at No. 23.)
