This list of personal favorites was assembled by Edgar Wright and myself in July 2016. Films are in chronological order.
Note from Edgar:
“This is a personal and subjective list of 1000 favourite movies from 100 years of cinema. It’s not a set text or intended as any bible of ‘greatest’ films. I decided to put this together as a fluid list for my own enjoyment, amusement and reference. I hope it’s fun for you to pore over and dive into some of the films you haven’t seen or haven’t heard of.
Don’t get all riled up about omissions or which movies you think should be favourites of mine, the truth is I may very well like / not like or not have seen the movies you think are missing. In fact, I like way more than 1000 movies, but any longer and this list would be really insane.
Thanks to Sam DiSalle for helping me put it together. If you feel so inspired, make your own list. Film watching is a life time pursuit and there’s many more films out there for me to see. This site is a great place to start."
