Sight and Sound - films of the year

The University of Westminster produced film, 'The Act of Killing' comes out top in Sight and Sound's films of the year. It received 23 votes from the poll of 100 critics, curators and academics.

This film was supported by the International Centre for Documentary and Experimental Film at the University, and funded by a combination of industry funding, AHRC Research money and the University of Westminster. An essay relating the film to writing by Walter Benjamin is available on the Sight and Sound website.

The full results of Sight and Sound's poll is available in this month's magazine, and the top ten along with editor's selection is available here.  But, who cares who came second?
