So the Sight & Sound poll was a big deal this week. If you missed it, it's the once-a-decade list of the top 50 films as voted by critics from around the world. But what about directors? We've got a look at the all-time top 10 lists from some of the greats, like Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, and more.

Wow, this is cutting it close: Quentin Tarantino has finally wrapped principal photography on his highly anticipated 'Django Unchained,' with exactly five months left to put the movie through post-production. Can he make it in time for Christmas?
As we mentioned in this weekend’s Comic Con panel coverage, director Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ is already stirring up a great amount of interest. The film follows Django (Jamie Foxx), a slave in the American South living two...
Looks like Quentin Tarantino's upcoming 'Django Unchained' is big enough to get its own own panel inside Comic-Con 2012's Hall H, which previously housed large panels by Disney, Sony and 'The Walking Dead,' to name just a few. Well, when you add names like Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson to Tarantino, it's bound to get some special attention.
We've been getting excited about rapper RZA's directorial debut, 'The Man With the Iron Fists,' which he stars in and co-wrote with the film's producer Eli Roth, and now Universal has set an official release date for this fall. It's so close we can almost feel it!
'Django Unchained' is already ramping up its marketing campaign despite not hitting theaters until Christmas. Last night during the BET Awards, Quentin Tarantino and The Weinstein Co. debuted an extended :60 TV spot for the film with some new footage (including new looks at Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson).
The trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ showed us something we haven’t seen before: A sadistic side of Leonardo DiCaprio. Oh, we’ve see DiCaprio unhinged before. Scorsese taps into an animalistic side of the Oscar-nominated actor at regular intervals. (Rent ‘Shutter Island’ or ‘Gangs of New York’ for examples.) But the Leo on display in Tarantino’s film is … different. He’s crazy. And he’s loving it.
Ask anyone what their favorite Quentin Tarantino movie is and 9 out of 10 will say 'Pulp Fiction.' Oh sure, you'll get the occasional wise guy who picks 'Jackie Brown' but everyone knows that 'Pulp Fiction' is the ultimate Quentin Tarantino flick. In fact, some love it so much, they make techno mixes out of it. Like this guy.
Back in November, Jonah Hill revealed he had to turn down a role in Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' because of a commitment to the upcoming Ben Stiller comedy 'The Watch.' Well, as luck would have it, a good eight months later, Hill's schedule has cleared up and he's back in 'Django' for a supporting role. As it turns out he won't be playing the character Tarantino originally had in mind for him, so what will he be doing?
Back when Quentin Tarantino was sprinting through the casting process on his upcoming ‘Django Unchained,’ an unconventional name was attached to the lead role of a vengeful slave seeking to free his wife from a vicious plantation owner. That name was Will Smith, Mr. “Getting Jiggy With It,” who was rumored to be willing to tarnish his clean-cut image to get down and dirty with Tarantino for the benefit of a potentially controversial project. Smith eventually passed, though, and the part went to Jamie Foxx.
Today, Smith explains why.
