In response to the outcome of a 2015 poll of the 100 Greatest American Films of All Time, BBC Culture recently threw critics a different question. Finding that last year’s results included only six films made since 2000, editors at the arts pages of the venerable broadcaster commissioned a new poll to determine the 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century. The results are expansive — and intriguing. To get to the consensus favorite, critics reached all the way back to 2001 and David Lynch’s sexy/creepy surrealist noir Mulholland Drive. That film was also on Sight & Sound‘s venerable once-a-decade ranking of the Top 100 Films of All Time which last was conducted in 2012. The three other movies on that list to hail from the new millennium also made the cut (see rundown below).

The British media today is roundly praising the choice of Mulholland, and the list itself whose aim, BBC Culture says, was “to prove that this century has given us films that will stand the test of time, that you will continue to think about and argue about if only you give them a chance and watch them.”

Feedback was received from 177 critics, academics and journalists in 36 countries and on every continent except Antarctica. The survey includes some Oscar winners, but also a lot of serious art-house fare — the likes of which we’ve seen in Cannes, Venice or Berlin over the past 16 years. There are a handful of blockbusters (especially from Pixar and Christopher Nolan) and seven directors with three films each, plus a group of doubles. Repping the diversity of the respondents, the list is split about 50-50 across English and foreign language.

The year with the bumper crop is 2012 with nine titles. While there are seven movies from 2015, there’s just one from this year.

Calling the list the “New Classics,” BBC editors swat away at Cassandras and insist “cinema isn’t dying, it’s evolving.” Below is the list, in reverse order. Let us know what you think.
