NEW YORK, Aug. 2 (UPI) -- The best film of all time is Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 thriller "Vertigo," a poll conducted by the British Film Institute's Sight & Sound magazine suggested.
Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane" has topped the list, which is compiled every 10 years, since the poll's inception in 1962, CBS said.
It slipped to No. 2 on the 2012 survey.
Coming in at No. 3 is "Tokyo Story," followed by "The Rules of the Game" at No. 4, "Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans" at No. 5, "2001: A Space Odyssey" at No. 6, "The Searchers" at No. 7, "Man with a Movie Camera" at No. 8, "The Passion of Joan of Arc" at No. 9 and "8 1/2" at No. 10.
CBS said 846 critics, programmers, academics, distributors, writers and other cinephiles contributed their top 10 lists, which included a total of 2,045 different films, for the survey.
