Edgar Wright's 1,000 favorite films in chronological order since 1920

Above, the trailer for the first movie in this interesting and useful list by English director, screenwriter, and producer Edgar Wright that will certainly unearth something never before seen or even heard of for even the most devoted cineaste.

This list of personal favorites was originally assembled by Edgar Wright and Sam DiSalle in July 2016, and is semi-regularly updated.

The same list in a different format (below) here.

An August, 2016 note from Wright:

This is a personal and subjective list of 1,000 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 nor 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 1,000 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 lifetime pursuit and there are many more films out there for me to see.

This list is a good place to start.
