The 2013 version of TSPDT’s 1,000 Greatest Films is finally here. After months of stop-start, data-building and unhealthy calculation antics, the latest group of 1,000 movie offerings has been assembled once again for your pleasure (or displeasure). Depending on your observation skills, you may have already noticed that there is a new presentation for this ongoing project.

Since 1984, the Criterion Collection, has been dedicated to gathering the greatest films from around the world and publishing them in editions that offer the highest technical quality and award-winning, original supplements for a wider and wider audience. The foundation of the collection is the work of such masters of cinema as Kurosawa, Fellini, Bergman, Tarkovsky, Hitchcock, and Kubrick. Each film is presented uncut, in its original aspect ratio, as its maker intended it to be seen. To date, more than 150 filmmakers have made it into the collection.
The Masters of Cinema Series is a specially curated DVD collection of classic and world cinema using the finest available materials for home viewing.
An ongoing collaboration between mastersofcinema.org and Eureka Entertainment, the MoC Series started in early 2004 and has so far included award-winning DVD editions of films by Carl Th. Dreyer, F. W. Murnau, Jean Renoir, Akira Kurosawa, John Ford, Masaki Kobayashi, Roberto Rossellini, Kaneto Shindo, Nicholas Ray, Satyajit Ray, Hiroshi Teshigahara, Peter Watkins, Sadao Yamanaka, Rene Laloux, Fritz Lang, Shohei Imamura, Vittorio De Sica and many more.
MoC Series releases all come with extensive booklets, and where applicable, a host of extra features.
From the book by Jennifer Eiss. The list is arranged by chapter. Each chapter starts with a top 10 (in alphabetical order), followed by the "best of the rest" (in alphabetical order).
