Take your seats, please...

...for our definitive rundown of the decade's greatest movie masterpieces. How did we create such a list? The process was simple: our crack film team – plus a wider panel culled from our unimpeachable pool of occasional contributors and trusted colleagues – each handed in a personal top ten. The results were then collated, processed, reprocessed, fed into our one-man mathmaking machine and presto! We had a list.It’s going to be controversial. Every reader (and indeed every writer) will find a personal favourite or two missing, while that awful piece of claptrap you almost walked out of is bound to be nestling somewhere near the top. But we think you’ll find it more informed, more all-encompassing and more impassioned than any other list out there… and if not, there’s a comment box below for your venting pleasure.
