25 Highest Rated Films on Letterboxd - 1940s

A list where I reference Hershwin's list of "All the Movies" to look at the 25 highest scoring feature length films for each decade, starting in the 1940s.
This is the top 25 as of May 7th, 2023 at 11:11am EST.
This list is inspired by Full Metal Listmaking, who's currently posting lists featuring notable films from each decade starting in the 1910s.
He's created a list for the 1910s to the 1940s already and is looking to do more in the future (his lists can be found here: https://www.listchallenges.com/profile/293489/published-lists).
