Design for Living (1933)
Featuring canonical classics such as Some Like It Hot, Dr. Strangelove, Annie Hall, Duck Soup, Playtime, and more in the top 10, there’s some interesting observations looking at the rest of the list. Toni Erdmann is the most recent inclusion, while the highest Wes Anderson pick is The Royal Tenenbaums. There’s also a healthy dose of Chaplin and Lubitsch with four films each, and the recently departed Jerry Lewis has a pair of inclusions.
Check out the list below (and my ballot) and see more on their official site.

William Wyler directed half a decade's worth of silent westerns before his big break came. From that point on he made high profile dramas, almost all of which are excellent movies.

The jury is headed by producer-director-actress Sylvia Chang who was elated with her best actress nomination Friday at Taiwan’s Golden Horse awards. She stars in Johnnie To’s “Office” (which plays in the festival’s Window on Asian Cinema), which she co-wrote as an adaptation of her stage play “Design For Living.”
Responding to media a question about her status as a pin up for a whole generation, fellow juror and actress Nastassja Kinski played down the compliment.

It’s easy to see why Ninotchka works as well as it does, and why it’s one of the best films from Hollywood’s golden age and of arguably Hollywood’s greatest year. Just look at the talent involved. Charles Brackett, Billy Wilder, and Walter Reisch were all seasoned writers, though with their best work admittedly still to come.

While this was happening, Greta Garbo was working
