The Ultimate Film List

Filmofile
18 min readFeb 26, 2023

Step One:

I copied and pasted 5 famous lists of films into one document. Each list included 1000 films:

List 1 — Jonathan Rosenbaum’s 1000 Essential Films

List 2 — They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They? 1000 films

List 3–1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die

List 4 — The New York Times’ Best 1000 Movies Ever Made

List 5 — IMDb Top 1000 Movies of All Time

Step Two

I eliminated all the duplicates, triplicates, etc.

Step Three

I sorted the films into 5 lists according to how many of the lists each film appeared on. For example, if a movie appeared on three of the lists, it went into the list entitled “List of 3s.”

Step Four

I sorted each of the lists into alphabetical order.

After eliminating repeats, the total comes to 3,011 films. I have not seen all of them. As of now, I’ve only seen 1,076 of them, so I can’t personally recommend them all, but if you are looking for a place to start your cinema education, or an opportunity to expand your watchlist, this should prove useful.
