Listal's top rated movies (★★★★+) with under 300 ratings, the amount needed to qualify for Listal's Top 250 chart.


I listed some obscure films not on the chart.

Personal notes:

Revised on 09/22/2013.
I won't revise this again until I've seen at least half of the films.

Such a nice list... Great!
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Apr 7 5:24
Very cool list! Only seen a handful of these, want to watch several, and the rest I'll have to look into.

Just a couple things I noticed you might like to fix though... Your picture for Seconds (#150) is from another movie (The Vanishing). And Life Is Beautiful (#212) has way too many ratings to qualify for the list. Hope this helps!
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Apr 7 6:57
The mistakes are fixed now. Thanks for the help!
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Apr 7 22:01
Very good list, sir. :)

Nice to see a good one here once in a while and not always those ass & tits lists, which seems to have almost overrun this site.
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Apr 8 11:10
Amazing list, sir!
Posted: 5 years, 5 months ago at May 11 8:45
What an extraordinary work of art, some of the best of the best here! No '2001: A Space Odyssey', such a shame...

I'm sorry, just curious, I've seen 'Witness for the Prosecution', how is that esoteric again? (course my memory of the movie's a lil' fuzzy?...)

Also, I admire the visual caps for each film, nice collage - truly captures the essence of each masterpiece...

a gold mine of a list - many thanks

beautiful

Pretty sad list. Well its a great list, but I mean its sad that classic films like "The Wages of Fear", "Ali Fear Eats the Soul", "Ugetsu", "Close-Up" or "Sunrise" have less than 200 votes! Those five are in every "all-time great movie" list you can find, so they should have received some attention and votes just for that.

Anyone who hasn't seen those classics should do so, and lets all get them up over 200 votes!

number 99 is "The Red Ballon", a reference to the song 99 Red Ballons. haha

looks amazing

i love this list so much!
Posted: 4 years, 9 months ago at Jan 16 6:42
Great list!! How sad that I've only seen 24 of these films. I better get to work.
Posted: 3 years, 10 months ago at Dec 23 11:56
more interesting than IMDB Chart.

Fine list, but sadly, while many of these films would be enjoyed by large numbers of people, the dominance of Hollywood and Anglophone cinema pushes them to the edges.
