[quote]The film’s critical reputation is not a post-#MeToo phenomenon; it has been surging for decades. (So has Akerman’s: her 1976 film “News from Home,” which draws on letters to Akerman from her mother, also made the Sight and Sound list.) In 1976, the critic Louis Marcorelles, writing in Le Monde, deemed “Jeanne Dielman” “the first masterpiece of the feminine in the history of the cinema.” J. Hoberman called it “one of the key artworks of the twentieth century,” “a unique spectacle as well as a strong statement on women’s assigned roles and designated space.” My colleague Richard Brody hailed it as a “tour de force of cinematic modernism,” one that “puts time onscreen as it was never seen before.” The film has explicitly influenced the work of directors including Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, and Céline Sciamma, who has said that Akerman is “one of the most important filmmakers in the history of cinema.”

R45 is the type of trite, bad faith reaction that the critics who took part in this poll not only encouraged, they had to have outright intended. Of course if you don't think an obscure, virtually plotless movie that is 200 minutes long is the greatest film of all time, you’re a philistine, you suck at watching movies, you simply don’t like it because a woman made it, etc. There's an element of trolling to it, and that will be fatal to the poll's reputation. It was once seen as canon; in the last poll, Vertigo unseating Citizen Kane felt like a monumental shift. This, though, feels like contrarianism.

R45 - the answer is not in any way a cop-out. Why do you think you must "identify" with a film to find it enjoyable - or in this case perhaps engrossing and rewarding. Is the "audience" for "The Godfather" comprised solely of disaffected first-generation sons of Italian immigrant criminals? Do you think that was the demographic Coppola was targeting? Do you only watch movies with gay protagonists?

"Jeanne Dielman" is a truly great film, and it is almost nothing like any earlier film that dealt with the same themes - "woman's issues," crime, the emptiness of middle-class life, etc. It is, in many formal and structural ways unlike almost every other film, which is a large part of its artistic achievement.

If films that are outside the current Hollywood mainstream, and perhaps have a challenging structure or message make them only for "Pretentioous cineastes" then that's what you think, and it is your loss. There are plenty of worthwhile films in every genre and from every culture - from highbrow European art cinema to offbeat crime dramas or silent slapstick comedy that don't run at the local multiplex these days, but perhaps you might enjoy some of them.

Ackerman, the director, committed suicide about 4 years before the film began receiving these modern accolades, leading to the #1 in the Sight & Sound thing. Too bad she couldn't have hung on a couple more years.

R77 It wasn't #19 in the 2012 Sight & Sound Poll. It was #36 (still way too high, IMO) in the 2012 Critics Poll, and didn't even crack the Top 100 in the 2012 Director's Poll.

It's quite clear that the only reason that "Jeanne Dielman" shot up like a meteor in the 2022 Critics Poll (along with some other very good films that had no business being ranked, like "Moonlight" and "Portrait of a Lady On Fire" among others) is that Sight & Sound dramatically expanded their criteria for who could now participate as a critic, doubling the number of voters, adding lots of younger voters and internet (read: social media) critics who tend (again, IMO) to not really have perspective when voting on the entirety of film history. How could any responsible critic worth their salt think that "Portrait of a Lady On Fire" is the 30th greatest film of all time? Higher than "Psycho," "Mirror," "Pather Panchali"? I loved that movie, but that's preposterous. It's myopic, "prisoner of the moment" political bullshit.

But this is what happens when identity politics trumps all other considerations. It's more important to this group of voters that the top film was made by a woman filmmaker, than that the top film was the one with the best argument for aesthetic excellence and impact. If people want to decry (rightfully so) that certain groups of people have been marginalized and often excluded from the filmmaking field, whether women, people of color, gay, or what have you, that's great and necessary. But the way to address that is to ensure equality of opportunity going forward, not to pretend that "Jeanne Dielman" is better than "Citizen Kane" because one was made by a woman about a woman, and the other was made by a white guy.

It's not a bunch of people at a meeting deciding something together; it's a bunch of critics submitting lists of their top 10, *unranked*. #1 goes to the film that appears on the most lists, etc.

You insist -- with no actual proof, much less a reasonable hypothesis how it would have happened -- that JEANNE DIELMAN made it to #1 solely for political reasons. You can't even entertain the idea that a lot of people might actually think that it's an amazing movie -- groundbreaking, provocative, influential, etc. Ask Todd Haynes. Ask Gus van Sant. Ask any number of professors who have taught it in film schools *for years*.

To quote the bewildering Janet Maslin tweet someone cited earlier, "My God, the world is so much bigger than this." Yes, Janet -- and the new list shows that far better than the old one did.

R88 I most definitely put forward a reasonable hypothesis for how it happened. You may not agree with that, but c'est la vie. I'm well aware that "Jeanne Dielman" has been a touchstone of certain segments of post-1968 Marxist-feminist (not using those terms pejoratively mind you) academic film studies. Its academic reputation has never matched up to the product on the screen. Others think it's (in your words) "amazing". I think it displays a remarkable lack of sophistication in technique, which has a direct impact on how aimless and boring it is. YMMV.

I've watched (and indeed own) more of the S&S polled films than probably 99.9% of the general population. I have over 1,000 books in my own personal film library. I've owned and operated multiple video stores in my life. I've received grants to do academic research in the field of film history.

If you know how the poll works, then why did you ask "How could any responsible critic worth their salt think that 'Portrait of a Lady On Fire' is the 30th greatest film of all time?" The critics polled each submitted their top 10. You should be asking how any (or enough) of them ranked PORTRAIT as 1 of the 10 greatest films of all time.

I'd also suggest that the more voices you let into a poll, the more wide-ranging those results will tend to be, especially when its topic is as subjective as this one.

Yes, R105, but you make it sound like she veers off into slasher territory (when it's not shot that way at all), and in any case it's not the actual ending of the film.

The ending kind of reminded me of Timmy in that gay movie name whatever looking in camera. Tears, blood.... same shit.
