1001 movies that is a must seeby euroasiangenetic | created - 3 months ago | updated - 1 month ago | Public
I read the book from “Bonnier’s 1001 movies you have to watch before you die” and personally I find that book kinda lazy and commercially.
I have watched many movies around the world in my life and there is always a hidden gem. Here is my 1001 movies you should watch.
Ps: since I’m gonna reach 1001 it will take some time before I’m finished with this list because I need to rewatch some movies, please be patient.
