Decade after decade this number h been increing.
He went up to 358 filmmakers in 2012, and in this year 2022, the fourth edition, the amount of involved amounts to the negligible figure of 480. Those chosen, they comment from the magazine itself, cover experimental, author, conventional and conventional filmmakers
Gender from around the world ·, ultimately remarking that in all ces, the voter is an outstanding director.

a more normal list than the general

Here we leave you with the top 20 positions on the list of the 100 best films in the history of cinema voted for many of the best live filmmakers today.
The result contains ties to three and up to four titles, so visually the clsification is somewhat strange.

2. Kane citizen (Orson Welles, 1941).
3. The godfather (Francis Ford Coppola, 1972).

    you can see, there are significant changes with respect to the general list that we have already published here yesterday.


Godard enter and that start of modern cinema that meant at the end of the getaway in 1959, Scorsese with his famous taxi Driver, or the personal Murkowski with two titles.
Also, with two is Kubrick, who crowns first place with 2001 while surprising the presence of Barry London.
But it is not there where we want to focus.

on the controversy of the first place in the general list that supposedly responds to a feminist agenda

We wanted to break a spear in favor of Jeanne Mailman, 23, Quiet Du Commerce, 1080 Belles of Chantal Ackerman, first place in the general and fourth list here next to the tales of Tokyo de Ozu.
How could it be otherwise, criticisms have emerged from the main list and the film that the crown, with some very hard such that of the renowned screenwriter and director Paul Schrader, who he to ensure that the votes have been manipulated so that

Up to number one the Chantal Ackerman movie?
Without having seen this list yet, yesterday we already thought that Jeanne Mailman would not have been the first choice for almost anyone among the respondents who choose their 10 favorite films, but that, a very respected work added to the gradual change of mentioned mentality, this would have appeared
In the vt majority of the ballots delivered in a good position, which h brows it to number one in the count.
And fourth place in this particular and smaller list does nothing but corroborate, or at let reinforce, our theory.
We can leave doubts in early January, when the individual content of each vote is made public, while we have decided to continue enjoying and celebrating the cinema.
