In 2023, the world of cinema made a major comeback with cultural milestones such as Barbenheimer and exciting new releases from Greta Gerwig, Martin Scorsese, and Yorgos Lanthimos. This made it a bustling year for Letterboxd’s 11 million users.


The 25 Best Movies of 2023 and Where to Watch Them

The popular social media platform for film enthusiasts, used for logging, rating, and reviewing films, has just unveiled its Year in Review, divulging the movies most watched and cherished by its users. Notably, Gerwig’s Barbie topped the list in terms of activity volume and obsessive rewatching. Margot Robbie, the star of the film, garnered the most attention, making her the platform’s most-watched actress.

Interestingly, Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer also received high praise, securing the third spot for highest-rated film and highest-rated drama. Nolan maintained his status as the most watched director for the third consecutive year.

The second installment of the animated Spider-Verse series, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, claimed the top spot for highest rating, closely followed by Poor Things. Celine Song’s stunning Past Lives was hailed as the highest-rated directorial debut and romance movie. Jason Schwartzman emerged as the most-watched actor, likely fueled by his leading role in Wes Anderson’s latest film, Asteroid City.

Poor Things took the crown for highest-rated comedy, fantasy, and sci-fi movie, while Talk To Me was crowned the highest-rated horror film. In the realm of concert films, Beyonc√©’s production outshone Taylor Swift’s, securing the highest rating.

In an unexpected turn, despite Scorsese’s endorsement, Killers of the Flower Moon failed to secure a spot in any category, revealing the platform’s audience preferences.

Now, what are Letterboxd users most eagerly awaiting in 2024? Undoubtedly, it’s Dune: Part Two.
