It Seems I Had No Choice.

Much hay was made over Sight & Sound's most recent "Greatest Films Of All Time" list, as I'm sure happens every 10 years when critics are asked to consider their favorites. Something great to come of all that hubbub is this collection of 1-star reviews for each of the films in their top 10. My favorite line from the Citizen Kane review:
"Never have I left a comment on movies before, but after watching this movie it seems I had no choice."
I'm not sure if he watched the same Citizen Kane that I did, but his copy was apparently so bad that he had no choice but to leave negative feedback. A gem from the Vertigo review:
"This movie goes on forever and never stops ever until it ends."
 That is almost profound. Almost.
