Official Top 250 Narrative Feature Films

Letterboxd's Top 250 movies, based on the average weighted rating of all Letterboxd users. I removed all stand-up specials, stage plays, concert films, documentaries, shorts, 'collection listings' and other 'rarities', so only feature length narrative movies are listed here. Films should have a minimum of 5,000 ratings to be eligible to enter the list.

As a sister to this list, we also have a Top 50 films with less than 5,000 ratings, so be sure to check out the more obscure gems there!

My friend Jack Moulton made a list of Letterboxd Top 250 documentaries, go check it out!

And last but not least there is a companion piece to this list with all films that were once part of…
