The 21st Century’s 100 greatest films

That’s why we, the editors of BBC Culture, decided to commission a poll of critics to determine the 100 greatest films of the 21st Century.

It was a vision that intersected with Hargrove’s simulators and computer models, the telemetry in the race cars and the data design of the prototypes. This is what they could offer to businesses that were traditionally managed retroactively by studying quarterly financial reports—data from the past. McLaren would get them to work with live data, to compete in real time and to simulate the future.
