  4. Sight & Sound (Hall of Fame Method)'s icon

    Sight & Sound (Hall of Fame Method)

    Favs/dislikes: 13:0. Inspired by scholar Kristin Thompson, I've decided to follow her advice by recreating Sight & Sound's 7 famous polls from the past 60 years by using the "Hall of Fame" method. This method only allows a film to reach the top 10 once; once the film hits the top 10, it can no longer be voted on, as its status in the "Hall of Fame" has been cemented. 1952 1.
