Earlier this year I participated in a poll of film critics, enthusiasts and experts to find the 50 greatest films of all time. The results were worthy, of course, and anyone should be proud to have seen or own such a collection of 50 films. But the results were also fairly predictable, and were just about the same as every other film poll, complete with Citizen Kane topping the list. So the listmaster, Iain Stott, came up with a better idea. He invited everyone to participate in another poll, a "Beyond the canon" poll. This time he gave us a list of 300 films that were considered the "canon" films, or the accepted classics. Our job was to vote for up to 100 great or favorite films that did not appear on this list. The final list of 100 posted this week, and it's a great deal more interesting.
