A companion piece to Dave Vis' list of Letterboxd's 'official' top 250 movies of all-time, which excludes documentaries from consideration. Credit to Andrew C for the idea.

Read notes for free streaming links where applicable. Please notify me on any dead links. I'm putting the date the link was last checked next to it as a reference point. Italicized links are foreign language films with no English subtitles or incomplete films. I'm linking them just in case they still help. Also: HD = high definition. SD = standard definition.

User who has seen the most so far: Martin Antrobus, 68 films.
