The best movie ever according to the 2012 Sight & Sound Poll as chosen by 846 critics. What a load of dog shit. 846 mostly pretentious wankers.
A guy confuses a fear of height's with a fetish for melodramatic women with huge eyebrows and makes a tent in his pants. A pretty boring adventure with piss poor acting and a dreadful score that sounds like a bee sting.
To declare this film as the best film ever made? "It is folly" to quote Sean Bean from Lord of the Rings. It wouldn't even make my top 500, literally! Old films are mostly shit. The film world has come a long way. Modern films have surpassed them in so many ways. Superior content, cinematography, sound, acting quality and so on. Old films entirely rely on story and for that reason I liked The Manchurian Candidate despite the appalling acting but the story in this isn't even good?
"The Best Film Ever" is pure nostalgia, pretention and it's simply wrong! The Emperor's new clothes. Grow some pubes you snobby bastards.
