Letterboxd's 1001 Greatest Movies - 2018 update

November 13, 2018: finally updated!

Same concept as my 'Official' Letterboxd Top 250 list, but extended to 1001 films. So that means this list is also based on the average weighted rating of all Letterboxd users. I chose to remove all stand-up specials, concert films, documentaries, shorts, 'collection listings' and other 'rarities', so only feature length 'dramatized' movies are listed here.

To avoid any discussions about documentary or not and short or not, the Letterboxd genre classifications are used to remove them. Except for Duck Amuck, which is obviously a short (7 min.), but isn't classified as such.
Therefore you do see La Jetée on the list (not a short), but for instance Close Up is removed (being classified as documentary).

I'll try to update this list every so often, but it's quite the job.
