My 1000 Favorite Films of All-Time

Essentially the most memorable 15-ish% of all the feature length films I've seen in my life (which is around 7,000-7,500); there are hundreds of films I've yet to log on Letterboxd. Only includes films made between 1940-2016 (due to my knowledge of pre-1940s cinema being so limited), and with runtimes of approximately 40 min. or longer.

650ish through 990+ are currently unranked, and I've primarily only been adding 5/5s to this list lately so there are a lot of films (mostly recent 4.5s) that are missing from it.
