1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die

All the films from all the editions, including those subsequently removed, presently totalling 1222. 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 no strict order, but the site now offers options to sort lists chronologically or alphabetically etc.

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