The 'Official' Letterboxd Top 250 movies - updated weekly

The Letterboxd Top 250 movies, based on the average weighted rating of all Letterboxd users. I chose to remove all stand-up specials, concert films, documentaries, shorts, 'collection listings' and other 'rarities', so only feature length 'dramatized' movies are listed here.

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!
