Quentin Tarantino’s Top Twelve Films of All Time Are ...

Quentin Tarantino can usually be counted on to anoint some unlikely favorites whenever he jots down a ten-best list, but for this week's Sight & Sound poll asking directors to submit their picks for the best movies of all time, Tarantino mostly stuck to the seventies: All but four of the films in his top twelve list are from that decade. In alphabetical order, Tarantino picked Apocalypse Now; The Bad News Bears; Carrie; Dazed and Confused; The Good, The Bad and The Ugly; The Great Escape; His Girl Friday; Jaws; Pretty Maids All in a Row; Rolling Thunder; Sorcerer; and Taxi Driver. What, no Anything Else?
