This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
This list contains 250 films by the 250 greatest directors of all time, according to "they shoot pictures don't they?". Each director has one entry; their most critically acclaimed film. Two directors appear more than once on the list (Michael Powell and Stanley Donen) and all together there are 5 director couples (Powell/Pressburger, Donen/Kelly, Coen Brothers, Cooper/Schoedsack and Straub/Huillet). #76 is a TV-mini-series; #81, #151, #157, #180, #190 and #202 are short features, the rest of the entries are featured films.
"Listed below, are the films currently ranked from 1,001 to 2,000. The list below is in alphabetical order and is unranked. Many of these films are ex-members of the 1,000 Greatest Films listing."
This film project is missing because it has no IMDB page: ENIAIOS (Gregory J. Markopoulos, 1990, USA, Col). It is an 80-hour experimental film cycle that has never been completely shown.
To make the list look better, only the first episode of FANTOMAS (Louis Feuillade, 1913, France, 314m, BW) and SCENES FROM UNDER CHILDHOOD (Stan Brakhage, 1967-1970, USA, 135m, Col) were shown here but they are intended to represent the entire film cycles. Fantomas was a serial with five episodes and Scenes from Under Childhood was a series of experimental films in four parts or sections.
