A poll, conducted by BBC Culture, asked 177 film critics from 36 countries to name their favourite films of the last 16 years with 2001’s Mulholland Drive topping the list. However, the vote has divided opinion with some rather mixed responses all round.

Mulholland Drive tells the story of an aspiring actress who moves to Los Angeles and befriends an amnesic woman. The film starred Justin Theroux and Naomi Watts, and earned David Lynch an Oscar nomination for best director.

Check out the full top 10 from the poll below:

1. Mulholland Drive (2001)

2. In the Mood for Love (2000)

3. There Will Be Blood (2007)

4. Spirited Away (2001)

5. Boyhood (2014)

6. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

7. The Tree of Life (2011)

8. Yi Yi: A One and a Two (2000)

9. A Separation (2011)

10. No Country for Old Men (2007)

Many critics and movie fans took to twitter to express their disappointment at the list:
