Mad Max Fury Road Tops Best Of 2010s Poll

The decade is not over yet, but World of Reel has taken votes from around 250 critics, programmers, academics, filmmakers and distributors – including yours truly – for a new poll to find the best films of the 2010s so far.

With thousands of titles to choose from, the winner was revealed to be George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” which came in first by 9 votes ahead of Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life”. “Moonlight,” “Boyhood” and “The Social Network” rounded out the top five.

Amongst some of the interesting statistics were that Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master” barely showed up on female critics lists despite placing sixth overall, whereas with male voters “Moonlight” barely made the top ten despite coming in third overall. Also David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks: The Return” event series came in at #17, again blurring the lines between cinema and television.

Other notable films making it in include the likes of “Phantom Thread,” “Get Out,” “Inside Llewyn Davis,” “Under the Skin,” “Call Me By Your Name,” “Inception,” “La La Land,” “Holy Motors,” “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Dunkirk,” “Melancholia,” “Inherent Vice,” “Silence,” “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” “Drive,” “The Rider,” “Only Lovers Left Alive,” “First Reformed,” “Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Sorry to Bother You,” “Clouds of Sils Maria,” “Burning,” “A Ghost Story,” “The Revenant,” “Personal Shopper” and “Take Shelter”.
