A total of 92 Iranian critics took part in a poll conducted in September 2009 by Film magazine with Behzad Rahimiyan as guest editor in chief and the critics were asked to choose 10 top Iranian and foreign films they had seen in their lives. In Iranian cinema, like the world cinema, top movies are selected from time to time by film experts and the results have been always attractive to film buffs. If this occurred for the world cinema for the first time in 1952 and during an international exhibition in Brussels, the Movie Star monthly did it for the first time in Iran in 1971. In that poll, Vertigo, Rosemary’s Baby and 2001: A Space Odyssey were on top of the list. However, a year later, Film quarterly repeated the poll on the Iranian films with Dariush Mehrjui’s The Cow (1969) ranking the first. A similar poll was conducted in 1978 by a newspaper as a result of which the top film was Sohrab Shahid Sales’ Still Life (1975)...
The third poll was conducted in September 2009 with a higher number of participants; that is, 92 critics and firm writers. During the past decade, many film writers have been writing critiques on films and Film magazine officials chose those where have been more serious and more exact or who have been doing this for a long period of time. The result of the above poll is as follows
I I'm pretty unsure on movie number 6 on this list. The source says It's name is deadlock. But that title isn't on IMDb, either the film isn't on IMDb or it is another of the films made by Amir Naderi around 1973.
The reason there are 11 movies on this list is that the two last films got the same amount of points.
