For nearly seventy years, what might be called ‘the canon’ of greatest films has been arbitrated by an international poll of critics delivering a ‘ten best’ list every decade, published in the BFI’s Sight & Sound. 

Before the next such poll, due in 2022, this lecture considers what factors have made certain films and their makers ‘classic’; and why the fifty-year reign of Citizen Kane was ended in 2012 by Hitchcock’s eerie melodrama Vertigo.

This lecture is in association with Ciné Lumière, Institut Français. 

Followed by a related screening (Paid tickets available from Ciné Lumière). 

Cost: Free of Charge
