I'll be tackling this old challenge as well! I just watched Out 1, noli me tangere (#451) which concluded my quest to complete TSPDT top 500. I now have exactly 150 films to watch on top 1000, and I have planned to do it before the end of this year. I'll be tracking my progress here as I go along - and hoping to have some company, too, of course!

Next stop: top 600 checked (17 to go)!

2. Le diable probablement (1977), #516. Bresson is one of my favourite directors of all time, and this hit me even harder than I could expect. A bleak, brutal and beautiful film. (The bus ride was a brilliant miniature Modern Times from hell.)

I only have 7 to go on the list (the updates from last 2 years). Can I work on the Top 1001-2000 in this thread?

Of course! The title of the thread does not say top 1000, just that the source is TSPDT. I think that it means that 1001-2000 can be worked in this thread too.
