"A companion piece to Dave Vis' list of Letterboxd's 'official' top 250 movies of all-time, which excludes documentaries from consideration.

Documentaries must be feature-length (60+ minutes), with a theatrical and/or festival release in its entirety. TV series, miniseries, and episodes are excluded but docs listed as 'TV movie' on IMDb are eligible. No featurettes unless theatrically distributed, even if feature-length (featurettes are marked as 'Video' on IMDb, such as 'making of' docs). Concert films are allowed if they had theatrical release. No standup comedy marked as a documentary, nor any stage shows. 1,000 minimum vote threshold."
