Online Critics Choose 100 Best First Films

Oct 6th, 2010

The Online Film Critics Society, of which yours truly is member, released the results of a society-wide poll asking what first (debut) films are the greatest in history. Orson Welles’ masterpiece landed atop the heap — no surprise there — followed by some other predictable mainstays.  Though there were some surprises.  Here are the top five:

1. Citizen Kane (directed by Orson Welles)

2. Eraserhead (David Lynch)

3. Night of the Living Dead (George A. Romero)

4. The Maltese Falcon (John Huston)

5. Breathless (Jean-Luc Godard)

The full list featuring the top 100 can be found here.
