The Top Ten

1 Vertigo

One of Hitchock's greatest thriller with a mind-blowing end - MatrixGuy

What is vertigo?

2 12 Angry Men

Even if you made the movie today, not much would be different. Except for air conditioning, all electronics would be seized. This would be in my top 5 favorites of all-time. - westofohio

I have to agree with Matrixguy, this movie is great, just talking, but so interesting. - booklover1

3 Rear Window
4 Seven Samurai

What an amazing epic samurai movie by Akira Kurosawa

5 Sunset Boulevard

This fantastic film is definitely deserving of being in the top 3. It really takes a look into the deep, dark visions and thoughts in the physchy. I thought it was just going to be a charming Hollywood film noir, well, placed in Hollywood. But it was the opposite. This movie isn't charming. It's cruel. Dark. Stomach curling. Eye swelling. Head scratching. Gah, this film has everything. It's such a classic.

6 On the Waterfront

This isn't in the top 10? - naFrovivuS

The first 11oscar winning movie a superb story - MatrixGuy

9 Rebel Without a Cause
10 Some Like It Hot

The Contenders

11 Sleeping Beauty
