Here it is, chaps, loureviews' 1000 recommended films

Added Comedians back on 28th Jan to make the full 1,000 titles again.

Best viewed in 'film name' order for now until I can sort out a ranking for these.

Here are the 1,000 films, TV films and mini-series I rank above all others, not necessarily because they are good but because they are memorable, enjoyable, or just plain watchable.

Around half the list are from before 1970.

Have started to do quick reasons why in the notes.

Near misses: Bridge on the River Kwai, The Kid, The General, The First Wives' Club, Peeping Tom, Intolerance, The Raging Moon, The Rebel and probably many others.

Laughter in the Dark would have made the list but I only saw it for the first time after compiling this.
