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, concert films, documentaries, shorts, 'collection listings' and other 'rarities', so only feature length narrative movies are listed here. Films should have a view count over 1,000 to be eligible to enter the list.

To avoid any discussions about documentary or not, Letterboxd genre classifications are used to remove them.
My friend Jack Moulton made a list of Letterboxd Top 100 documentaries though, go check it out!

And as a companion piece to this list, I've also created a list with all films that were once part of the Top 250.
