Movies That Stand The Test Of Time

Mike Clark of USA Today offers his list of ten movies from 2006 that will "stand the test of time." I couldn't find his list from an earlier issue listing the Ten best Films of the Year. Are they different? How could they be different? If they are, what the heck is a movie that is one of the best of the year but WON'T stand the test of time? Ws it "Borat," for example? If "Borat" won't stand the test of time, how can it be one of the best movies of the year. I am, obviously, confused, but not as confused as Mike Clark. His thoughts on how movies change in status over time is far more reasonable. But is that a slap at director Vincent Minnelli at the end or is that just awkward writing?
