Edgar Wright's 1000 Favorite Movies

Source: mubi.com/lists/edgar-wrights-favorite-movies

List (in chronological order) put together by Edgar Wright & Sam DiSalle - July 2016

NOTE: The original publishing has been edited. Any new films added to the Mubi list will be included here, and the films removed from the original list will be kept for posterity purposes.

UPDATE: July 2017 -- The original list is now a year old, and I've went through to include the titles that Edgar has since added/removed. Hopefully this represents the most comprehensive list of the original publishing plus subsequent edits that have been made.
