And the best movie all time is… Tootsie!


What's the best film ever made? It depends on who you ask. The internet is crammed with lists of great movies – picked by directors, film critics and historians. We've taken a different approach, asking actors: stars as varied as Juliette Binoche, motion-capture genius Andy Serkis and 'Peaky Blinder' Cillian Murphy. And the results may surprise you – they certainly surprised us. The big dogs like 'Citizen Kane', 'The Godfather' and 'Casablanca' are all in there, but not necessarily where you'd expect, with Dustin Hoffman's cross-dressing comedy 'Tootsie' in the top spot. A random choice? Not when you stop to think about it; this is film about being an actor (with Hoffman at his soulful best) and about the transformation and the risks and rewards of following your heart.
