This is the Alternative 150, a version of the 2018 Shmight & Shmound list created to shake up the canon. I removed every film from the actual list that appears on the 2012 Sight & Sound List, the IMDB Top 250, or AFI's Top 100 films. As you can see, a number of the entries on this list are "film maudits" that have been embraced by certain sectors of cinephilia but not film culture at large. Many were also produced after the release of the 2012 Sight & Sound list.
The main list, along with a detailed explanation of what this poll is and how it came to be, can be found here: www.cinematary.com/writing/2018/7/9/the-2018-shmight-shmound-poll
