TRY TO REMEMBER Cinematic Year in Review 2002 Daryl Chin and Larry Qualls Festival des Films du Monde Montréal, August 22–September 2, 2002; Atom Egoyan, Out of Use, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, August 29–October 20, 2002; New Directors/New Films, New York, March 22–April 7, 2002; New York Film Festival, September 22– October 13, 2002; New York Expo of Short Films and Video, December 6–9, 2002. n September of 2002, Sight & Sound published its annual “Top Ten” poll, a ritual enacted every decade since 1952; what surprised even the editors of that journal was how similar the poll was to previous polls: Citizen Kane was the number one choice, as it has been in every one of the Sight & Sound polls since 1962. La Regle du Jeu placed third: it remains the one film that has placed consistently in the Top Ten since the poll was initiated in 1952.
