There still may be 84 years to go, but a new list ranks David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive,” Wong Kar-wai’s “In the Mood for Love” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s “There Will Be Blood” as the top films of the 21st century — so far.

The BBC created the Top 100 list by surveying 177 film critics — from every continent except Antarctica — and included films from 2000, though not technically the start of the century.

Among the notable entries were Todd Haynes’ “Carol” at No. 69, Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker” at No. 67 and “Her” by Spike Jonze landing at No. 84.

No films directed by Woody Allen, nor any by Alejandro G. Inarritu, who won back-to-back directing Oscars for “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)” and “The Revenant,” made the list.

The list does include Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” at No. 5, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” at No. 19 and Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave” at No. 44. The highest ranked film directed by a woman was Sofia Coppola’s “Lost in Translation” at No. 22. Spike Lee’s “25th Hour” is the only movie by an African-American to make the list.

Two Ang Lee films — “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and “Brokeback Mountain” — made the list, as did three by Christopher Nolan — “The Dark Knight,” ”Memento” and “Inception.” There were also three films by Joel and Ethan Coen — “A Serious Man,” ”Inside Llewyn Davis” and “No Country for Old Men” — and three by Wes Anderson: “The Royal Tenenbaums,” ”The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Moonrise Kingdom.”
