Sight & Sound Challenge

Sight and Sound magazine published a compilation of the top 100 films and Broken Shark were a little concerned about the somewhat underwhelming number they had watched so we set ourselves a task to watch the top ten. That was last year and we still haven't got round to it but now we have a reason to. Below is the Critics list, we bought five each and over the coming weeks we will review and discuss them and emerge the other side like a beautiful smug film butterfly. Or something.  Anyway we will definitely be smug.
