After consulting with 177 film critics across the globe, the BBC has put together a comprehensive list of what established critics believe are the 100 best films since 2000, with David Lynch's mystery-noir Mulholland Drive earning the top honor.

Indiewire broke down the data collection process thusly:

"Though the list itself is fascinating, what’s also compelling are the statistics about the actual list. According to the BBC, they polled 177 film critics from every continent except Antarctica. They also broke down the results by year, language, gender, festival premiere, and more. For example, 2012 and 2013 have the most films in the top 100 by release year, over half the films are in English, and only 12 films on the list were made by female directors despite 31% of the critics polled were female."

Following Mulholland Drive is In the Mood for Love, the 2000 Hong Kong film detailing a laborious, heart-breaking story of love that never fully blossoms. The rest of the top five is rounded out by Paul Thomas Anderson's epic There Will Be Blood, Hayao Miyazaki's remarkable Spirited Away, and Richard Linklater's Boyhood. Elsewhere on the list are multiple films by the Coen Brothers, Wes Anderson, Ang Lee, David Fincher, Steve McQueen, Christopher Nolan, and more. The most recent and perhaps surprisingly high inclusion on the list was 2015's blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road, which came in 19th overall.
