Changes at the Top for the Arts & Faith Top 100

The Arts & Faith Top 100 list has been updated for 2011—and there’s a new title atop our list!

Unseating Carl Theodore Dreyer’s Ordet is another Dreyer film, The Passion of Joan of Arc. Ordet has dropped to number 3, and Andrei Tarkovsky’s Andrei Rublev rises to second place.

Leo McCarey’s Make Way for Tomorrow blasts onto the list at number 6, the only English-language film in the top 10. The next highest-ranked English-language film on the list, Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia, comes in at number 16. John Ford’s The Searchers, two places lower, rounds out the English-language titles in the Top 20.

The most recent films on the list are 2008’s Summer Hours (2008) and five films from 2007: Munyurangabo at number 27, 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days at number 41, Heartbeat Detector at number 58, Silent Light at number 66 and There Will Be Blood at number 92.

The Arts and Faith Top 100 is determined by 65 film critics, writers and watchers who participate at the ArtsandFaith.com discussion board.
