    I think Brazil, Videodrome, and The Battle of Algiers are the odd ones out. I think The 400 Blows, Solaris, and The Red Shoes are better choices; or The Rules of the Game, or Grand Illusion. Otherwise, firm list.

      I fully agree. I'd say take out Brazil, Videodrome, and BoA and put in The 400 Blows, Solaris, and The Rules of the Game

    list of 10 are very limited. yours is fine as is and very representative of Criterion as a whole. with over 600 titles now there are infinite top ten list. all of them as legit as the next.
