Welcome to Letterboxd! to get started.

Here’s a quick primer on how the site works. At its heart is a diary where you record, rate, and (if you like) review each film you see. This is shared with your followers.

Seen any films recently?

Get started right away using the button above… or look for the “Add a Film” button on most pages.


Every poster reveals three quick-action icons. Click the ‘eye’ to tell Letterboxd you’ve seen a film. If you log a film in your diary, we’ll mark it as watched for you.


Show love for your favorite films, reviews and lists by liking them using the ‘heart’. We don’t mind if you like a film before watching it — the more love the better!


Create and share lists of films on a common theme. Lists are great for Top Tens, favorite genre flicks, or entire collections.

Your Watchlist

Add films you’d like to see to your watchlist. We’ll mark them off as you see them, so you’ll always have a source of inspiration. The Add to Watchlist option is on every film and review page, and there’s a shortcut to it in the "More options" menu on the film poster overlay controls.


Use custom tags when adding films to your diary, so you can easily find them in future. Add tags for genre, location, format, or whatever. You can find tagged films in your own diary, from friends or across the whole Letterboxd community. That’s a selection of our most popular tags above, go ahead — try clicking one…

So epic it hurts. I'm willing to gloss over the few plot questions it leaves and just be enveloped by the killer combo of Nolan & Zimmer (whose soundtrack, incidentally, makes *everything* feel epic if you put it on loud enough).

Loose Cannons


An Italian comedy/drama about two sons in a wealthy and successful family who are dealing with uncloseting, and the stigma they face. The tone is mixed, with moments of melodrama and farce seeming at odds with the tragic nature of the story - which doesn’t really develop in any meaningful way.

Find your Friends

Find and follow your friends and you’ll be kept up to date on the films they’re watching, liking, listing and commenting on, summarized in your Activity stream. It works a bit like Twitter: you’ll see new reviews and lists from the people you follow, and you’ll see comment activity if you follow both parties.

Find Your Friends

Connect using Twitter and we’ll find any friends that are also using Letterboxd. We’ll never tweet on your behalf.
