The title tt1764130 hasn't screened recently in the US, and oddly it was given a 1 vote by a top 1000 voter which is trying to keep his top1000 status by voting 1's on films. Would you be so kind taking a look at it?

Not that giving 1's to something not deserving such would be right, but why would giving 1's help him keep his status? It's more likely it had predominantly 10's I'd guess. But, yes, it should probably be looked into.

Fool if that Top 1000 want to keep his status i think is more easy to rate evrything 10 then 1 and no one will know enything about his activity but i think people are mad when see that movies /short movies are overraated ...IMDB should do something with overrated movies ...

Or, better yet, 5's which would not raise any red flags. I think it's clear that you're right. Though, one film maker with this complaint gave me access to three and they were all excellent...I gave one a ten, which is rare for me. Initially high rating is common for all films as early voting is normally from big fans. They even out, naturally over time. The easy answer is...get the film seen by more people and one vote, even by a top voter, has less impact.

Usually when you check they are voting ones on films with a low number of votes and a lot of 9 or 10s (which might look like vote stuffing).
