List of movies that have been considered the greatest ever

This is a partial list of films that have been regarded as the greatest ever. The aim of the list is not to resolve the question of the greatest ever movie - the one thing that film commentators do agree on is that it is impossible to have a single answer to that question. The important criteria for inclusion in this list is that the film is the "greatest" by some specific measure - be it a critics poll, popular poll, box office receipts or awards.
