NEW YORK, N.Y. - Alfred Hitchcock has finally usurped Orson Welles.

Hitchcock's "Vertigo" took the top spot in the 10 greatest-movies-ever list compiled by Sight & Sound, ending the 50-year-long run for Welles' "Citizen Kane." The magazine, published by the British Film Institute, surveys international film critics every decade.

"Citizen Kane" slid to second, making way for Hitchcock's 1958 psychological drama starring James Stewart and Kim Novak.

The list also includes a new addition: Dziga Vertov's documentary, "Man With a Movie Camera," coming in at eighth place.

Yasujiro Ozu's "Tokyo Story" ranked third, followed by Jean Renoir's "Rules of the Game"; F.W. Murnau's "Sunrise"; Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey"; and John Ford's "The Searchers." Carl Dreyer's "The Passion of Joan of Arc" ranks ninth followed by Federico Fellini's "8 1/2."
