Popular culture is generally seen as a set of 'signifying practices' that produce meaning. The term 'popular culture' invokes a notion of a common culture in both material and non-material ways.

The Greatest Films of All Time "Decennial Survey"

    NICC subscribes to the British Film Institute's monthly (10x/yr) magazine, Sight & Sound.  Every 10 years the editors survey critics, programmers, archivists, and academic professionals to learn what they view as "The Greatest Films of All Time."  The 2022 poll had over 1600 responses.
    Do you agree with the results?  Would you rank them differently?  Did your favorite film miss the list this decade?
    We invite you to scroll through this spotlight to review the choices and, where available, watch the movie found in NICC library databases or open access (freely available) online.  Some survey titles were unavailable to view digitally.
    The current survey issue (above) and library holdings from 2019 are available at the Peosta campus library or may be requested at other campus locations via the library catalog link above.
