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 and short or not, the Letterboxd genre classifications are used to remove them. Except for Duck Amuck, which is obviously a short (7 min.), but isn't classified as such.
Therefore you do see La Jetée on the list (not a short), but for instance A Man With a Movie Camera is removed (being classified as documentary).

A few statistics...
