Critics have named "Vertigo" the best film of all time, according to the 2012 greatest movies poll.

Conducted every 10 years by Sight and Sound Magazine, the poll brings together 846 critics and 358 directors to weigh in on the best films of all time. The last time the poll took place, in 2002, "Citizen Kane" took the top spot. However, this time it was Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 masterpiece that got the nod, moving up from its previous number two position.

As indieWIRE points out, this is the first time that "Kane" has not topped the list since 1952. Other big moves include "The Godfather" (Part 1 and 2), which dropped out of the top ten completely.
