1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die

All the films from all the editions, including those subsequently removed, presently totalling 1235. An easy way of seeing how many you've watched or finding films to try out.
Some single entries in the book consist of multiple films. I've added all the films they list in the entry.

I've tried to be as accurate and complete as possible, but if you spot any errors or omissions, please, do let me know.
Currently in chronological order of release.

RIP Chip Lary @tipsfromchip. Thanks for all the help, encouragement and enthusiasm in putting this list on Letterboxd.
