- "Rear Window" (1954) Critic score: 100/100. User score: 8.8/10. What critics said: "There is never an instant, in fact, when Director Hitchcock is not in minute and masterly control of his material: script, camera, cutting, props, the handsome set constructed from his ideas, the stars he has Hitched to his vehicle."
- "Casablanca" (1943) Critic score: 100/100. User score: 8.9/10. What critics said: "The dialogue is so spare and cynical it has not grown old-fashioned.

- The Godfather (1972) Movies Thriller. From the wise guys of Goodfellas to The Sopranos, all crime dynasties that came after The Godfather are descendants of the Corleones: Francis Ford Coppola’s magnum opus is the ultimate patriarch of the Mafia genre.
- Citizen Kane (1941) Movies Drama. Back in the headlines thanks to David Fincher’s brilliantly acerbic making-of drama Mank, Citizen Kane always finds a way to renew itself for a new generation of film lovers.
- Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975) Movies. Long considered a feminist masterpiece, Chantal Akerman’s quietly ruinous portrait of a widow’s daily routine—her chores slowly yielding to a sense of pent-up frustration—should take its rightful place on any all-time list.

Ebert's Best Film Lists1967 - present. If I must make a list of the Ten Greatest Films of All Time, my first vow is to make the list for myself, not for anybody else. I am sure than Eisenstein's "The Battleship Potemkin" is a great film, but it's not going on my list simply so I can impress people.
