Director Clio Barnard must be tired of collecting awards by now. Here's another for her scrapbook: her debut narrative feature, The Selfish Giant, landed on film magazine Sight & Sound's top-ten list. 

The Selfish Giant, however, was the only woman-directed film to make the vaunted list, which was published by the British Film Institute and compiled from a poll of over 100 international critics, curators and academics. 

Interestingly, four other women-centric but male-directed films made the cut: GravityBlue is the Warmest ColorFrances Ha, and Upstream Color
