good poll...interesting choices they made...

i think i'd have to go with gimme shelter...

(and p.s....the blurb and photo you have for 'thin blue line' is the wrong one...the documentary you want is about the police...this one you have is a rowan atkinson bbc comedy series....)

My pick would be Shoah. A must-see masterpiece.

It's a crime that I haven't seen that film. From the beginning, it's been on my "to see" list that I started even before I joined IMDb but the list is so long now that the specific films sometimes fall through the cracks. Seeing it on this list and also your recommendation has reminded me of the film and that I really need to see it.

'Good one! I'm surprised that 'Paris is Burning' didn't make the cut. My vote would go to 'The Thin Blue Line,' although it would be hard not to vote for 'Hoop Dreams.'

Hi, Eagles90.

Great poll!
However, there is a complex remark and further suggestion below.

The option #16. Seven Up! (1964 TV Short) is not describing the whole project voted by Sight & Sound. The 16th place was taken thanks to the series of interviews, and Seven Up! (1964) is only the first one, as well as the only one directed by Paul Almond. All the rest were directed by Michael Apted for more than 50 (!) years, it's a terrific effort.

I understand those "series" has no single page as series to link in a list and poll. But to leave Paul Almond aside would be a misfortune dismissal, I think. So, I suggest to add the description to the above-mentioned option #16:

Including all the further interviews directed by [b][link=nm0000776][/b] at [b]7-year intervals[/b]: 
- [link=tt0066356], 
- [link=tt0075610], 
- [link=tt0088650], 
- [link=tt0101254], 
- [link=tt0164312], 
- [link=tt0473434], 
- [link=tt2147134], 
- [link=tt8929142].

===========================
the above should result into this:
===========================

Including all the further interviews directed by Michael Apted at 7-year intervals:
