In 1991 film critic Roger Ebert made a list of what he considered the 10 greatest films of all-time. The list is in alphabetical order. Ebert always appeared to be suspicious of such lists but he relented, naming a list of classics, later visual masterpieces of New American cinema, documentaries and international art-house including a relatively obscure entry of Yasujiro Ozu (best known worldwide for Tokyo Story).  Nice to see 28 Up listed, one of Michael Apted’s ground breaking documentary series and that’s not Cimino’s Heaven’s Gate but Errol Morris’s (The Thin Blue Line) late 70s documentary about pet cemeteries.
