At the time this article was published, the film was only marked as watched by around 18,000 people on Letterboxd, while the second-placed “Parasite” has over 1.6 million. With the big, nationwide start in the USA next weekend and the subsequent evaluation gradually in the rest of the world, many voices will come. It remains to be seen whether everyone here is so enthusiastic and whether the film can stay at the top of this list for a long time.
Incidentally, “Everything Everywhere All At Once” also received an excellent rating from the aforementioned IMDb (average: 8.9 out of 10), but it had just over 2,000 ratings there so it was not yet a candidate for the top 250 list there. list is.
