Create lists of Cast, Crew and Studios
I often find that I want to list things other than films. It would be great if I could create a list of, for example, the Best Directors. Or list my Favourite Japanese Actresses. Or make a list of popular Animation Studios.
So this suggestion was made over a year ago, I doubt it's in the pipeline, but it really, really would be great. Just being able to make lists grouping filmmakers with similar sensibilities, or actors with connections of some kind.

Looks like the Actor/Director/Studio functionality feedback has been merged :)
As per the other thread, I think being able to rate these Filmography Pages would be a great idea too.
Would it also be possible to sort a filmography by My Personal Ratings of their films?
Any thoughts on this ?

I think it would be a great idea to add this functionality to the site. Where we could create a list such as "Best Actors of all Time" (a rather obvious example) and have the actors/directors themselves on the list rather than just films. This list would certainly work now Letterboxd has added images to director/actor pages. It would also be perfect if we could have actors and films within the same list.

This is a great idea! Not only can we rate movies, it would be kind of cool to be able to rate individual people as well. Give George Clooney 4 1/2 stars for example or Walter Hill 2 stars, etc.
Oh right cheers! I didn't know there was genre lists, thanks for getting back to me anyway.
there you go..
Yes, we plan to add some sorting options to the actor/director/studio pages, which could include user rating.
Thinking about it then. If the planned director pages show a complete list of all films with users own ratings this would serve some purpose, even it's not specifically broken down into director/ actor. Once the pages are up I can see myspef perhaps rerating to reflect the directors performance rather than the movie as a whole. That would work for me.
