TSPDT Starting List

This list collects every film from the Starting List that became They Shoot Pictures Don't They's 1000 Greatest Films. This is in chronological order, with any films from editions newer than the 2018 edition added at the end, still in chronological order. Things that aren't on Letterboxd are here. This is my second attempt to make this list, and I hope everyone enjoys the list, as it grows.
